In this (slightly) advanced Lesson, we will be creating an Animated map generator with Dropzones and cameras to animated locations in Motion and FCPX. This example is part of a much larger Generator Pack that will be released in June 2018: Ultra Travel
Screen replacements using Mocha. I had actually finished these hours before I left for Thailand, however never posted my process on them.
I was given the raw 6k footage from a red Dragon via USB drive and tracked each of the screens using Boris Mocha. For a scene or two where we had a finger covering the image, I had to separately track that out.
Keyframes are an animation fundamental. If you are new to animating. or to keyframes this lesson is for you. In this lesson we explore what keyframes are, and how to start using them in Apple Motion to create compelling motion graphics
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

Are you looking to pick up Element3D but want to see how it works before purchase? If you are looking for a quick overview of how the interface and how it works with After Effects, heres a quick tutorial I put together about it.
Ever wonder what it takes to create an animated lower third to be used as a template?
Heres a process video that I put together of one of the last projects I was just working on to create a couple lower thirds that can be adjusted on the fly in after effects.
