Logo Reveal Animation Bumper

here's a little logo animation with a title reveal. Using a lot of the cool techniques we've learned, including some position animations, track matte matte animations, some feathering and mask animations. So a lot of cool stuff going on in this composition. As always, this project is available for you to follow along with simple logo reveal. The original one is called logo and logo reveal. And then I'll be putting all of what I'm working on right this second into a new folder That you can fall along with two awesome. So first let's create our basic logo. And if you open up the original logo, you see that it's just a square comp. Now you can do anything with this logo. You can bring in your own logo. And that's why I like creating a separate comp for the logo so that you can quickly replace it. And no matter what you replace it with, it will still be be animated in this fashion. So I'm gonna click create new composition. And first I'm actually going to call this logo animation Five seco...

nds is fine, 1920 by 1080. So that's going to be our full animation. Then I'm going to create another composition called logo too. And this one I'm going to make it 1000 by 1000 pixels. And then we can just create a simple logo. So what I did was I used the ellipse tool, I made it white and I just double clicked the ellipse which created a perfect circle within this perfectly square composition. Then I just added a text layer on top with a V. Which let's make it black for now. Dark gray and make it really large. And this is for video school online, this isn't really my logo but I just wanted to create something right within after effects. So it was easy for you to recreate as well. You can put a picture here, you can do whatever. And let me actually just use the align tool to align it. And I'm actually going to move it down just a little bit cool. So now we have our logo. Next let's take our logo too. Or the logo you created and and add it to our animation comp Here let's add a background. So I'm going to press command why to create a new solid layer And for this one I will pick some sort of like orange color. Cool. Okay, orange solid. Put this behind, rename it BG for background. Looking at our logo, reveal what I'm gonna do first is just this animation of the logo being sort of faded on like this expanding on. So to do that in our logo animation, let's put it right in the middle. Let's bring down the scale. So pressing s to bring down the scale, I'll put it at 50%. Now I want to create a mask, a circle mask around this. And I'm going to do a mask expansion. So to create a perfectly circular mask. I can just select this logo layer and double click the ellipse tool which is now the mask tool when I have a layer selected the cool thing is that Because this composition the logo to composition was a 1000 x 1000 pixel composition. The mask is also going to be a square, not an oval. If I did it on the background for example it becomes this oval mask but because it's on the square comp it becomes a perfect circle. If I drop down my mask one properties and then I play with the mask expansion, you can see what I'm going to do. I'm basically going to fade it on and reveal it like this. So let's go to one second. Set a key frame for mask expansion at zero pixels and then go to half a second and drag it down all the way until it's off the screen. Okay and negative 500. That makes sense that this would be it because The mask or the size of this is 1000 pixels. So if it's decreasing by size by pixels. On each size side of the composition that would mean it would disappear. Let's go in the middle and add some feathering too. Make it look a little bit more organic. That looks pretty good. One thing that I noticed though when I expand on the feathering. Once the it's already expanded on the feathering effect still is in effect. So what I wanna do is go to this first key frame set my mask feather there, say let's just make it 1 to make it little neater. Go to the next one and then make the mask feather zero. So let's bring it in our comp time so we can play through this. Yeah, that looks pretty darn cool actually. So that is cool. If we go back to our logo reveal, we see what happens though is this little ball drops down and then it becomes this sort of logo and that's actually two different layers. It's this drop layer and it's just sort of a an illusion that it looks like the logo itself drops down then expands. So what I did there was I just created a little circle which I can do with my lips tool. Make sure I don't have any layer selected, shift, click and drag to create a perfect circle. Something like this. I'll rename this drop with the line panel, just align it to the center, center, horizontal and vertical. So at this point right when the logo starts to expand, I want it to be here at this position. So press P to bring up position. Set a key frame there but here at the start I wanted to be up above our composition, right? So I'm going to drag the y axis up until it's off. So now it comes down and wow that was really fast. So we needed this to go slower. So let's move this to the right to maybe like one second, which means we'll need to move these key frames to the right or just this entire layer to the right. Boom. Yeah, that looks pretty cool. Maybe I'll add a little bit easy ease F nine on my keyboard. Boom, boom. Maybe I want it to start expanding just a little bit earlier with the easy easing, since it gradually goes into that fade. I need to bring this a little bit earlier. Cool, I like that. We can add motion blur to the drop flowing down and I'll put this behind our logo too. That's cool. Then after the logo expands on, I'm just going to cut off the end of this drop layer just by dragging this in like so so it's off completely, even if I don't see the logo, so that's really cool. The next thing I want to do is add our little text kind of pop out so see how this text pops out, like. So first I want to create my text, so let's go here around two seconds, Take our text tool and I'll type video school online, wow, this is really, really large because I'm using the same settings for that. V let's just play with the size of things and the spacing, I'm going to actually make it left aligned on the paragraph and I'm going to change the font to white actually for this one, I'm gonna yeah, that looks pretty good. Okay let's make it a little smaller. Cool. So the ending spot here is going to be vertically center but just over to the right of the screen. Cool with this logo, it's going to move over to the left. So before we move it though, let's set a key frame here when it expands at a second and a half for both scale and position because I'm going to shrink it just a little bit. See how this shrinks down while it's moving over to the side. So back in our logo composition so there is there and then here we want to shrink it. Let's just bring upscale to maybe 40. And then for position, press P to bring up position, drag it over to the side like that. Now, once it's over the side I have a better idea of what our text looks like. So let me actually just using scale, I'm just going to bring it down just a little bit, make sure it's vertically aligned again. Okay, so that's kind of our final look and also what I'm going to quickly do is make the V. Inside the logo the same color as this background. What I can do is get this orange color by pressing command shift. Why? Or selecting this layer and going to layer solid settings. If I click this color, The color picker pops up and I have this hex code which is the color exact color of this orange f. 9814. If I copy this and let me cancel out of this. Then go into logo too and go into the V. And then into the character settings and into the color. Now I can paste this color right there into this hex code and that's how you pick and save colors and reuse them over and over. An easy way. Anyways now I like that because it looks kind of like this V. Is cut out from this this white little circle which I think looks a little bit better. This text also has a little bit of animation to it in the original logo animation. See it pops out from behind our logo. So we want it to be its final position right here. So let's press P instead of key frame there and also for s for scale. If I present you with that layer selected we see both of those key frames. Now if I go back here when the logo is in the center first let's put this behind our logo. And then let's drag it to the left and make it a little bit smaller just like so and now it pops on from behind our text. Pop do but of course we need to get rid of this text before here. Okay now let's add some easy ease for all of these key frames for both the logo and text animation. And then go into the graph editor. Select all the key frames and drag the handles in to give it a little bit more of a pop and add motion blur to both layers, awesome. So you can play around with the speed, the size of everything. But this is our basic logo reveal. I actually did this easier than how I did it in my original one, I used a track matte which isn't really necessary for this layer. So what I did here was I added this track matte layer, which I basically just duplicated the logo. Now for the bottom logo, I called this track matte and then for the video school online text I change the track matte too alpha, inverted math. So alpha, inverted matte means that this text will appear wherever this logo or this track matte is not. So let me turn off the logo and you can see what's happening. So it's coming from behind that. So it's a kind of for sure way to make sure that your text, no matter what the size or position is, it's not going to appear when it's behind the logo, The track matte is just there to ensure that this video's quality text only appears where the track matte is not and that's the inverted matte. If I chose alpha matte. Track matte, it would only appear where that track matte is inverted means where it's not awesome. So this is a cool little intro. I hope you enjoyed this one. It's just another real world project that I think, knowing all the skills you have, just putting them together. It's like little building blocks. You can create these sort of more advanced animations and it's just going to get more advanced as we go along with this class. Thanks so much for watching.
