Join Eran Stern for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Designing a Channel Ident.
- [Instructor] If your subscription allows it, you can download the exercise files used in this course. After extracting the zip file, you will see a folder with two items. The Logo ID.aep file and a folder named "Footage." This is where all the assets for this course are placed. So, if something is missing, you can reconnect it from here. Now, for the sake of efficiency I've created only a single project file, named Logo ID.aep. If I'll open it, you can see that under this "Comps" folder, all the relevant comps are available. Each one is relevant for it's own movie. Now if you're watching the course in a linear fashion, you can start with the first composition here, and keep using it because we are going to build on top of it until we reach the final result. Also note that I'll be using a font named "Bree Serif Bold." This font is available through Adobe Font Service and it should sync automatically when you open the illustrator file. But if for some reason this doesn't work for you, you can sync it manually from this page. One last important note, we are going to create an animation for a real TV channel, named Zoom. Since this is a commercial channel, you cannot use its logo and music outside of this course. But, rest assured, that all the techniques that you learn here will be applicable to use with your own logos as well. So, if you're ready, let's get started.
- Animating Illustrator artwork
- Animating a camera
- Extruding a 3D logo
- Adding 3D particles and shadows
- Rendering the result
