This is part 3 of 3 lessons talking about simple lower thirds.
In our first lesson, we looked at what a lower third is, and how to create a very simple one using a shape layer and gradients.
in our second lesson, we created a more styled eye catching design using tools built into After Effects, and photo imagery.
In this lesson we continue from our design in part 2- and add to it. In here we make use of alpha mattes and precomps to give our design more life than simply fading in and fading out.
The topics covered in this lesson are:
Assembling our lower third
Using alpha mattes,
Animation of position properties
Easing of keyframes (keyframe interpolation)
Viewing multiple comps at once
Finessing our animation
Using the Light Sweep effect
Time Reversing of Keyframes
