January 26th 2021: New Attempt

Am still trying to figure this out. Bear with me, it’s making my head spin. But despite that, it’s fun anyway. I’m not sure why I get two black bars on either side of the video. Maybe it’s something I’m doing in After Effects. Right now I’m feeling pretty clueless. But I love the idea of being able to draw the viewers attention to an aspect of the photograph that I think is most interesting, or worthwhile, or odd, or whatever!

All beginnings are difficult.

January 20th 2021: Motion Graphics Pan and Scan Assignment

I am not nuts about either of these two. I feel more like I fell into it instead of really knowing what I was doing. I’d like to have more control over the process, but, naturally, that will take time and constant repetition. I become irate with myself if I don’t “get it” on the first go-around, or the second.

I think I’m going to have to disabuse myself of that state of mind and expectation. And is not that a lesson in itself?

I seem to prefer this one. It feels like the train is pulling away.

This is NOT my creation, but it gives some idea of what will occur here. This goofy looking text is called Lorem Ipsum. It’s some Latin text that designers use to fill in space for writing that is yet to come. It gives me, the designer, an idea of what this page might, or could, look like with the normal amount of text. Ut lacinia lorem ex vitae nibh. Aenean tincidunt dolor purus, sit amet posuere sapien convallis a. Phasellus at gravida felis, ac accumsan felis. Integer massa nulla, accumsan vel nibh et, elementum luctus ipsum. Aliquam libero eros, pellentesque ac neque in, scelerisque accumsan mi. Aenean vestibulum luctus velit nec fringilla. Pellentesque fringilla volutpat fringilla.

Nunc leo mauris, rhoncus vel ipsum ut, mollis euismod purus. Quisque et dictum ante. Pellentesque vitae ullamcorper augue. Donec egestas nibh at dolor efficitur vehicula. Integer suscipit ornare viverra. Aliquam vulputate neque libero, sodales convallis lacus vehicula ac. Phasellus sit amet imperdiet ipsum. Phasellus interdum nulla varius massa tincidunt, vitae lobortis leo imperdiet.

This represents my introduction to a program called “After Effects”. There is no sound track. This is my first attempt. More like: this is my first baby-step-crawl into that program. It is NOT easy because “After Effects” has precisely 8,923,642 options built into it. I will need several lifetimes, and or, many reincarnations to get anywhere with it. However, as far as I know, I have only this lifetime, so I’d better get moving.

Type forms designed in “Illustrator”. That was the easy part.

By the way, you might want to look at ipsum ut, mollis euismod purus. Quisque et dictum ante. Pellentesque vitae ullamcorper augue. Donec egestas nibh at dolor efficitur vehicula. Integer suscipit ornare viverra. Aliquam vulputate neque libero, sodales convallis lacus vehicula ac. Phasellus sit amet imperdiet ipsum. Phasellus interdum nulla varius massa tincidunt, vitae lobortis leo imperdiet.
