Description

In this class, we will learn how to choose the best animation process depending on the type of experience. From there, we will understand mandatory animation principles before we switch to hands-on After Effects demonstration. In this part, we’ll see how to bring life to your design through an animation system. It’s not only about grids and margins but also timing and emotions.

I’ll also show you what plugins to use to animate faster, and better as well as being able to hand over your animations to your dev team so you can be best buddies.

 

We’ll be animating a full page of a creative website. From importing in After Effects, to preparing your workflow, to animating different types of elements such as page transitions, buttons, images and text.
