In Topic: When do you add music?

01 October 2015 - 11:53 AM

I try and be in charge of the music , I usually have a theme for my animation and pick a music to go with that . Iblock my animation then pick the song and start fine tuning my animation to match any hits , bursts , stretching , etc .. in the music but to start with I have a clear vision of how the piece will look , is it Grandiose ? Is it fast ? Is it funky ? etc .. all can help you pick the music

In Topic: Resources that teach or show what it's like to be a motion graphics producer

I don't remember something specific to link you back to but I can tell you how I can define motion graphics artists (if they are the same as producers) . A typical project in a mograph artists's life would start with a brief and initial contact with the client . it then kicks off into setting up the agreements and paper work that the artist has to do , then you move to story boarding that the artist also has to do , then you move to style framing and look development the mographer has to do as we.. When production starts it will be up to you to model and research to get all the assets you need , then animate , light and texture your stuff . Once all that is done you will be expected to do the sound design as well and finetune (AKA edit) your piece and take care of making it online and then getting in touch with the client again . Of course you will hire people to help you when you are getting more work but what I am trying to tell you is that being a mograph artist involves a lot of everything and you should be prepared for that

I have the same issue with 2014 , what I would do is press the CAPS lock on and then use alt-tab to switch through open windows in Windows , go to another window , and then use alt-tab to switch back to AE , usually it works for me
