Animated intros and segments!
With the flyers for the astronomy class done, I can now get started on the requested animations for the class. This task seemed really daunting at first since I thought I would have to think of and animate at least 2 different after effects animation, but with the help from my supervisor, I was provided with a suggested After Effects template to use to help my workflow.
Here’s the template I used for the animated intro for the class.
I’m mainly glad that the template was easy to figure out and I was able to add in my own images and text. Plus I think it’s a really fitting style.
I already got the animated stingers done which was also just a template I could export from, so my main task was to make custom animated segments for the class that were specific to the class.
I found another template for this and paired it with some free-to-use stock footage. Here’s how it looks so far.
I’m having a lot of fun with these templates! They save me a lot of time and can easily be adjusted to fit the class.
