Time to bring it all home! Learn the basics of Adobe Audition to finesse the audio in your final piece, and import all of your assets from the previous lesson to begin animating. Jorge will finish off the course by doing an extensive demonstration of his process in After Effects, completing his entire motion design piece from scratch.

Homework

Assignment

1. Find the right audio for the piece. Edit it if necessary to fit the animatic, and try different options to see what vibe works best.

2. Create an animatic. Make sure to add all o the important moments and movements in it.

3. Animate and finish your Motion piece. Take the time you need to finish your animation using all the principles we've learned - and make a schedule!

4. Share it with the world!

Here's my final assignment. The course was super helpful and practical. It took me a little longer than I anticipated, but I learned a lot about basic principles of animation and motion design workflow.

Thanks so much, Jorge!

1. Find the right audio for the piece. Edit it if necessary to fit the animatic, and try different options to see what vibe works best.

I've slowed down the following track and added some choral and atmosphere to it, plus a text to speech narration. It's kind of placeholder until I get better at editing audio tracks.

Here is the finished piece.

"Death is just another path, one that we all must take"

I usually don't do concepts, but this course really inspired me to try that. I hope this is not too offtopic as I did my piece in 3D instead of 2D, as I wanted to focus on improving my 3D (Cinema 4D) abilities.

May have gone a little overboard but I'm happy I finished!

Hi!, finally here is my last animation based on the quote: "The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new".
Please feel welcome to give me feedback, thanks!
