Hey everybody, and welcome back to another exciting and informative episode of 7 Minute AE Tutorials, where you learn tips, tricks, and shortcuts in 7 minutes or less. No BS. Just AE.
This episode is the first tutorial in another three part series. This next project has a massive amount of information that can’t possibly be covered in just 7 minutes. Trust me – I tried. So, instead of giving you a tutorial that’s super fast or just too jam-packed with information, I decided to split it up over the next three episodes. And the cool thing is, you can use the tips, tricks, and shortcuts from any one of the next three episodes in a number of ways with your own projects.
In part 1, we’ll create a logo animation using an image and three lines of text. In part 2, we’ll create a really cool, advanced reflection using fractal noise and compound blur. In part 3, we’re gonna add some finishing touches, which can be applied in a number of ways to countless other animations. You can take the tools you learn in each part of this series, and apply them to your own projects to get customized, professional results.
