Basic Logo Reveal in Adobe After Effects

Technical Tutorial Published 8/14/17 Last updated on 5/28/19

A simple tutorial that could be used as an introduction to keyframing in Adobe After Effects. Its also a good way to show students how they can take a 2d logo created in another Adobe program and take it further by animating it. Like I say in the video, it could be used at the start of a video they have made or even turned into an animated GIF for use on a website.

It is indeed helpful. The keyframing in Adobe After Effects is used to animate a 2D logo.​

​Very Nice! Track Mattes are fun! I tend to have those later in my AE segment so they will know how to use keyframes at this point but you did use the mattes in some cool ways that my students would enjoy seeing. Thanks for sharing!
