If you’re like me – learning Motion Graphics by yourself and not in a fancy school this video article might come handy to sort your knowledge and reveal something new to you. Keep reading and watch the video that explains everything clearly.
From years of experience I’ve learned different tricks how to make moving objects look better taking advantage of dimensions, colors, dynamics, placements, typography and more, but often time it’s a discovered knowledge. You know it works, but can’t explain why. Well in this video it’s all assembled in a single clip and explained with basic graphics that makes it all clear.
For example – do you know what is the difference between hard-cut, slow fade and fade-through-black transitions? How they are perceived? Or what is the difference between Action, Reaction and Activity in your scene? Which one makes your object be perceived as main object, which one roots it into environment and which simply gives life to your scene? How to achieve thrilling, dangerous, screaming, sad or romantic feeling with a single font by using the right animation. How zooming-in and moving camera closer makes your scene look different? It’s all in this video. Grab a piece of paper for notes and enjoy the saturated 23 minutes of learning basics of Motion Graphics that will set you apart from most artists and enable you to tell your story in advanced way.
