The Elements of Motion Graphics Tutorial Miniseries - Part 1: Atomic


wintermute digital writes:

Welcome to the Elements of Motion Graphics!

In this miniseries, we'll explore the different elements of motion graphics, and develop a general theory for making effective motion graphics animations.

In future videos (I anticipate two or three more, one for principles of artistic composition, one for the rules of animation, and a final one reviewing the use of the Blender VSE/Compositor to create additional effects), we'll explore the creation of a final scene and short animation.

Here's Episode 1 - Atomic Fragments:
This video goes over generating primitive shapes (Atoms), modifying them to create slight variations (Isotopes), and putting everything together to make complex composites (Molecules).

As always, you can find a summarized text tutorial with the essential points on my website, along with many other free Blender tutorials.
