Check out this fun video tutorial on Artbeats by After Effects professional, Eran Stern of SternFX. With an Artbeats stock footage clip (download free with tutorial) and a little Adobe After Effects magic, follow along with Eran as he converts Kinetic Energy to Kinetic Typography.
In this tutorial, see how to create a short commercial for a fictional wind energy company by integrating type into a spinning wind turbine. Use the spinning blades of the turbine to reveal the message and then “wipe” it away. To make it more energetic, “explode” the text to tiny pieces with the help of the CC Pixel Polly effect.
Did you follow along and make a commercial using the tips Eran shared? If so, please feel free to share it with us. What other tips and tricks would you like to see? You can email us your questions and finished wind turbine piece to firstname.lastname@example.org.
