This unit will teach you how to design and develop motion graphics and visual effects for film, television, video and the web. Through a series of practical projects, you will learn how to apply principles of motion graphics and visual effects to visual design challenges. Using industry-standard software tools such as Adobe After Effects, you will create visual compositions using layers, transparency and hierarchies. You will learn how to animate text and graphic elements in 2D and 3D space using keyframes and motion paths, and how to create visual effects using techniques such as motion tracking and colour keying.
