Throughout these lessons we'll be diving into some of the techniques that can be used within After Effects in order to create motion studies for UI and UX designs. So, in this tutorial, we explore the versatility of shape layers, use sliders and expressions to gain more control over our compositions and reduce clutter, and, by the end, learn how to take static comps and bring them to life. As we focus on why motion design is an important part of the design process, we'll discover how motion studies can be a valuable alternative to prototypes.
