Basic Training: After Effects (Continued)
This week I made some progress on animating my banner in After Effects. I took awhile to get the assets for it ready, but the animation was pretty straightforward once I dropped in my PSD. I didn’t end up using a lot of effects besides fading in/out each background color. For the rest of the images I just offset them so they would drop in one at a time. There are a lot more effects that I still haven’t tried out (it seems like there’s an endless number of possible effects), but I’m pretty happy with how my first animation came out!
Pixel Art Tutorial
Here is the published pixel art tutorial! It’s ready to go for other STAs to start testing it out. I think it should be a good primer on Ai tools like the grid tools and the live paint bucket (if people haven’t used them before), so I’m hoping people find it helpful and applicable to other projects.
