Idents are short promo videos that identify a station or network.
Once a mainstay of radio and television, idents are now a critical branding element for all digital channels, especially platforms like YouTube. Join me in this short, fun, and easy course, where I will show how to create your own ident in After Effects. Learn how to import and animate a multi-layered Illustrator file using the Graph Editor, extrude a logo into 3D, add 3D particles and animated text, and apply sophisticated lighting and shadows. I also shows how to render your result to a master file for delivery.
