This tutorial was great example of using the camera and it’s depth of field feature. After completing the tutorial I swapped out the crosses for my logo. I then exported the image as an animated gif in Adobe Media Encoder, here’s the final animation.
As I was examining my Graphic Design Portfolio website, I had determined that I needed something on my home page that showcased my Motion Graphics skills. I had done a bit of searching and found a couple artists on Behanced that had nice Typography Animated Gifs that I was inspired by.
Below are images that I aspire to replicate to add that extra motion I needed on my website:
To begin learning this Typography Animation technique I found a tutorial on YouTube by a Motion Graphics artist that goes by the name of Dope Motions. This was a perfect project to experiment with After Effects and 3D text elements.
Finally here was interpretation of an Animated Gif with Typography. I will continue to experiment with this form of Motion Graphics, what I would like to try is create a highly polished Adobe Illustrator text element and then bring it into Adobe After Effects to add the extra motions desired for an even deeper distortion effect.
