This tutorial builds on making flourishes by making something WITH the flourishes. If you want to learn the basic techniques that you’ll need here go to either:
The fast version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bdd0__brbag
The pro version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUlgtFvOG-w
The idea is to combine smaller easy to animate elements into one longer, larger, and more impressive piece without doing much more work. If I could sum up the purpose of After Effects that would be it. Make less work. Did you know that back in the day some poor schmuck had to manually draw special effects onto each frame of this thing called Film Stock? What a world. What a time to be alive. Thankfully we no longer have to suffer those indignities.
This is also a request from http://wwwyoutube.com/Shaf2k8 and if you have an effect or technique you want to learn just let me know and I’ll do my best to help you out.
I hope you enjoyed the tutorial and if you have questions leave them in the comments and I’ll try my best to answer them all.
Thanks and have a nice day.
