Afters Effects Workshop – Kinetic Typography

Screen Shot 2014-10-28 at 15.30.40Today’s workshop was all very new to me in two ways, the first being Adobe After Effects and the second being Kinetic Typography. With a project set the day before to produce a twenty-second sequence involving kinetic typography, this workshop would prove very useful when undergoing this project. The first step to take in After Effects is make a composition, this being the canvas that our text will display on. The next step was to insert the text, one important part to this was to have each word in a separate layer, hereby being able to animate each word. With the text inserted it came down to the creative side of things, being able to display each word in a separate way. In After Effects there are effects such as position, opacity, scale and also the 3D effect were you manipulate the X and Y coordinates of the words. This workshop really gave us the ability to experiment with each affect and see what worked and what didn’t. The workshop gave us further pointers such as easy ease and motion blur, both these helping display each word in a smoother fashion, as a result creating a more professional sequence.
