AE Basics 32: Creating Motion Backgrounds with Shapes Layers
AE Basics - A Creative COW series for new users of Adobe After Effects. Lesson 32: In this tutorial Andrew Devis takes some of what has been learnt over the previous AE Basics tutorials on shape layers and puts them together to create a motion background for text. In this tutorial Andrew covers shape creation, shape duplication, working with multiple shape layers at a time, pre-composing multiple shape layers etc. Andrew also introduces "Adjustment Layers" to create a blurred vignette and to use as a color adjustment layer while showing how to move between comps to get the best possible look.
