Animating with the Forces of Nature in After Effects

In this series of tutorials, we will learn how to create typographic animations that appear to be affected by different forces in nature.

We start out with magnetism, a force that is relatively easy to make look realistic. We then follow that up with animations for gravity, water and wind. As we move to the different forces, they ascend in difficulty. We learn how to create an expression and use a slider to control its properties over time. We also create an animation preset that can be reused later in the project.

We cover many different principles of animation and how they relate to the affectation of objects to give them a real-world feel. By the end of this training, you will be equipped to bring your typographic animations to life as well as save time while making them.
