COURSE CURRICULUM

What will I learn?

LESSON #1

Basic principles

In this first lesson, we will go through some of the basic principles for looping. Some math (radius, sin, and cos), keyframing, and the importance of even numbers. This will help you understand the fundamentals so you can come up with your own infinite loops when you are done with this masterclass.

LESSON #2

Rigging & Animation Wheel of Strive

Here we will start building our loop with simple shapes and start tweaking our animation. We will use a lot of Align to Spline and polish our animation with a timetrack. We’ll also rig the camera to loop and see our animation coming to life.

LESSON #3

Rigging & Animation Slide Strolling

We will do a complete reconstruction of my “Slide Strolling” animation. There will be e a lot of formulas and spline wrapping to get our weird curvy shapes. We rig the camera to loop and we will start to see our animation come to life.

LESSON #4

Design Wheel of Strive

This is a small lesson where we add design elements to our loop. We also have an extra look at all elements and add bevels.

LESSON #5

Design Slide Strolling

In this lesson, we make sure that we have enough subdivisions everywhere. We will also adjust the design, add bevels and make sure everything loops seamlessly.

LESSON #6

Compositing Wheel of Strive

This lesson will be inside After Effects. Here we will import our render together with our masks. With adjustment layers and masks we fine-tune our colors. Lastly, we go through some tips for making it look perfect on Instagram.
