Kinetic Energy to Kinetic Typography
by Eran Stern

June 10th, 2015
Category: After Effects,training

With an Artbeats stock footage clip and a little Adobe After Effects magic, We can convert Kinetic energy to Kinetic Typography.

In this tutorial I’ll show you how to create a short commercial for a fictional wind energy company by integrating type into a spinning wind turbine. We’ll use the spinning blades of the turbine to reveal the message and then “wipe” it away. To make it more energetic, we’ll also explode the text to tiny pieces with the help of the CC Pixel Polly effect.

Show us what you can do with your newfound knowledge by downloading the clip used here and make your own spot.
