Motion Design: Animate Professional Lower Thirds

Motion Design: Animate Professional Lower Thirds

In Media, lower thirds usually appear in videos and they present us with relevant information about the content or perhaps the person speaking. On this Miguel Reyes course, you'll learn to develop these important elements.

About this course

Lower thirds are very common elements used in Media, especially on television programs and news channels. They're those boxes that appear at the bottom of the screen that give us the name of the person speaking, or maybe the headline of an item of news. So on this course, we'll be creating a flat style lower third. 

What project are we going to develop?

On this course, you'll learn how to develop a flat style lower third in After Effects. When you're done, you'll also have an editable template that you can reuse for other projects. I'll also show you how to adjust the duration of the animation without starting the whole thing again from scratch. 

Who's this course for?

This course is for those who have a basic knowledge of After Effects and want to take their skills to the next level. So if you know you're way around the program, enroll if you want to explore the possibilities of this software.
