Welcome to another Live Tutorial. I recorded this live on ustream where I ask what tutorial people want to see and I try to do it on the fly. The result is a different kind of tutorial. It’s one with all the mistakes left in but more importantly, with all the problem solving left in too. If you’re looking for a quick, step by step tut, look elsewhere. There are a TON of scripted tutorials out there that will get straight to the point and show you exactly how to do a technique. What I hope to do with THESE tutorials is to add more problem solving to the learning process.
Motion design is as much about problem solving as it is about technique. You need to be able to learn why to use things as much as you need to know how to. Hopefully these tutorials will be helpful in understanding the why as well as the how of setting up an animation. As always, let me know what you think.
Full Disclosure: I did edit out one part of this tutorial where I looked for a tool in illustrator for three minutes never to find it. I thought that it would be annoying to watch.
