Animating titles in Apple Motion.

Apple Motion Professional Training Lesson 5 part 2
Animating titles in Apple Motion.

This is a 2 part lesson.
In Part 1 we deconstruct the design of one I recently created for a show on broadcast, and design it from the ground up.
Learn the basics of lower third design that can be used for titles or Q+A type graphics on your productions.

In part 2 We use behaviors, Keyframes and Masks, to create an animated lower third with a reveal.

You can use this with dropzones to make a variety of different graphics using your own Logo.

Special thanks to Travis Watson for the suggestion.
If you have something you want to know how to do in Motion, Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere, After effects or other programs, send me a message or leave a comment. If it’s something many people can benefit from I’ll most likely cover it.

Lower thirds in After Effects part 3 of 3: Creating a fully animated lower third

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
