final animation....

Making of Final Animation....

i just realized that i have not been using the font style that i am suppose to be using it for this animation, so the first thing i had to do was to sort out the font style....so, i opened the document in illustrator and then fixed the fonts style...so that i can use it straight in after effects...

1
here is the screen shot of working in illustrator


2
for some reason i couldn't fixed the font style so i decided to do that in Photoshop...i wanted each letter on different layer so when i use them in after effects it would make it more easy to work on...so i screen shot each letter and then saved them on to the different layer as a jpeg file....this time i erased the white background so that i can only get the only shape of the letter and nothing else...



3
at this point i had the actual letter on each separate layer....my next step was to work in after effects...so i went on after effects and started making my final animation...
4
during the experiments of after effects one particular colour contrasts i really liked was black, white and grey...so for my final animation i have decided to use the same colour contrasts....so i made 1 solid layer and used white colour for the background....
5
i then made another solid background to make the particle...i went on effects and gave cc particle effects to this background to make the particle...i chose black and grey colour for that so it stands out on white background....

6
here you can see how the particle looks on the white background...it zoom in when you play the video you will see the effect...i wanted to give 3D effect to it...

7
after setting the particle i then had to set the word ARTS...so, i stated with letter A....i use similar effect for the font because i wanted my animation to blends with the particle.....

8
this is how it looks when the letter A zoom in...slowly it covers the whole screen...

9
i wanted to blends the letters rather than coming induvidually...so i set the letter R when the letter A kind of fade out....i changed the opacity of letter A so that you can clearly see the letter R...

10
i used the same technique for the letter T....

11
again, same technique and effects i have used for the letter S...the only difference is that i changed the position of the letter so that it looks like the letters are coming from all the different direction....

12
after all the individual letters finishes, i wanted them to come all together...this is how it looks like...again, i have used the zooming effect so that it looks like the word ARTS actually coming from the inside...

13
as you can see the letter A has a very nice shadow effect...i wanted to give more depth to the word ARTS so it stands out...I used shadow effect to do that...

14
at the end when the whole word ARTS appears, i used lance flame effect just to makes it look even more better...and i think it worked really well..perfect timing as well....

video
this is the final animation....i am very pleased with my final outcome...it turned out how i wanted to be..simple yet interesting...
the most beautiful thing about this animation is perfect timing of letters and lance flame...which is the key point i think...i believe the timing has to be perfect when you are doing the animation....
