Mograph Techniques: Shape Animation in After Effects

Lynda.com - Tue, 04/01/2014 - 20:00
Authored By: Eran Stern

Released On: 4/2/2014

There are some big advantages to using shape layers in After Effects: precise, fast rendering; compatibility with Illustrator; and smaller file sizes. Their vector quality means the artwork can be scaled to any size while remaining crisp and sharp. And they work with third-party effects and support layer styles. Take a deep dive and explore how to use the shape tools to communicate ideas in an uncluttered way and make complex animations simple. Eran Stern shows how to create custom wipe animations, use mathematical operations to animate shapes and paint them in over time, and morph between vector shapes.

In this course, aimed at photographers somewhat new to the video workflow, Rich Harrington shows how to get your footage into Lightroom, create tonal and color adjustments and custom develop settings, and publish and share your video on platforms like Facebook, Flickr, and Behance. Rich also covers how to build a simple slideshow that mixes photography and videography.

Draw Better and Faster with Illustrator CC

Lynda.com - Tue, 04/01/2014 - 20:00
Authored By: Deke McClelland

Released On: 4/2/2014

Illustrator CC does something that few updates to the program have done: It promises to change the fundamental way that you draw. Yes, there was the Pen tool in Illustrator 1, Pathfinder operations in Illustrator 5, and dynamic effects in Illustrator 9. But Illustrator CC changes the entire nature of the game. Deke's not exaggerating; the things he's about to show you are that big. Learn about the "new" Pencil tool, on-the-fly corner rounding, and freeform curve bending. 3 features in 3 short chapters that will change the way you see Illustrator. Then Deke shows how to combine them all in a real-world Illustrator project that proves his thesis: drawing has never been faster, better, or easier than this.
