A social media animation video is designed to live on social channels.
This means short, sharp bursts of content that grab people’s attention as they scroll through their feed. Anyone can post an image or a few lines of text, but few can post a high-quality animated video. In this course, we will take an Illustrator template consisting of four pages and convert it to a series of short videos with After Effects. I will explain the importance of knowing the length your video should be, the best aspect ratio, how many versions you should produce, and so on. I will walk you through the needed steps to prepare for animation, then deep dives into the main animation process. We will cover how to bend a layer and fill in missing pixels. And also highlight text animation and particle systems. Plus, the best way to export for the web and create a GIF animation. At the end there’s a challenge that lets you complete the series of short videos..
