What is this UI/UX course about?
This hardcore course will teach you how to animate almost any interface, from desktop to smartwatch. We’ll start with the basics of interface animation and proceed to the hardcore techniques in After Effects.
We will also cover animation prototyping in Principle, features for exporting animation to use in web and mobile applications, and features for importing designs from various software for UI designers.
What will I learn in UI Animation Course?
In the first lesson, you will learn basic animation workflow in After Effects. On the example of a simple interface, you will become familiar with the tools and learn how to correctly export the results of your work to any video format or GIF animation.
The lesson consists of a series of video tutorials that cover animation with the use of masks, text animation techniques, and various methods to animate outlines and outline illustrations. These are 20% of the tools that can complete 80% of the tasks.
Animating in Principle
You obviously don’t need a machine gun to shoot a sparrow. And some tasks don’t require After Effects, since they can be done easier and faster in software like Principle. We will review all its pros and cons, the tasks it suits better, and the tasks that still require After Effects.
Scripts for Superlight Workflow
After we figured out how to import and animate layouts, we’ll analyze the set of our scripts. They will significantly accelerate the working process and reveal new opportunities that are extremely difficult or even impossible to implement by conventional means.
Animating Shapes and Preloaders
We often get to know a mobile application or website starting with a preloader. In this lesson, you will learn how to make interesting animations of preloaders and better understand how to work with shape layers.
This lesson will be dedicated to morphings for micro-interaction animation. We’ll figure out how to create complex animation that looks natural and neat.
Export to JS
Is it possible to export animation so that it remains vector, takes little space, plays at 60 fps, and can be integrated into any website or mobile application as code? Yes, it is!
The interface segment already has a set of distinctive visual languages. We will study the most popular guidelines from Google and Apple, understand what is needed for them, and practice in creating animated interfaces for iOS devices.
After Effects animation isn’t only manual work. Some aspects of the process can be automated with the help of expressions. Using infographics, you will learn how to create animation with expressions, to get rid of a huge amount of routine work and make the animation work for you.
This set of lessons will help you figure out how to embed footage in other videos, simulating the augmented reality
