In this final lesson of a 5-part tutorial from Motion Graphics Trainer, Dean Velez, we'll build the logo and put it all together. The entire 5 part tutorial explores creating complex backgrounds using a Photoshop still with the 3D properties of After Effects. We'll also create high end transitions using path tools and various effects as well as eye catching 2D animation using parented layers and resolving text using the track matte features.
