I have never used Adobe After Effects prior to creating this logo reveal so I am pretty pleased with the results (particularly because the training video was created by someone with a foreign accent who spoke quietly!)
I don’t think this is an area of expertise I really want to develop because it is cheap and easy to outsource this kind of stuff by buying a template from say Videohive and then getting someone on Fiverr.com to do the editing on Adobe After Effects for you.
I’m increasingly of the opinion that I should not be spending too much time learning these skills for myself but outsourcing the work to experts while I concentrate on product creation and marketing.
However, to know that I can do this for myself, if I need to, is useful and opens up more opportunities for creating stunning video products.
I recently bought a bundle of products off Envato that included this logo reveal template and I decided to give this a go. It is more complicated than I anticipated – the software takes a little getting used to but, like anything else, if you give enough time and effort to it should be easy to learn – particularly if you start with editable templates like me!
Tell me what you think of my first logo reveal using Adobe After Effects – I am sure this is basic stuff for some people but for non-technical bods like me, this is as ‘state of the art’ as it gets!
