I polished and completed my doughnut project.
Final polished tests, which I added the transition between the alarm clock and the doughnut-sized clock. I also added animation between the doughnut boxes forming around the doughnuts and when their lids shut. In alternating order and with variation in timing they move up or down before going back into line and the lids shutting.
In the tests, did a lot of work and experimentation into circle burst animation around the clock at the start, to see what looked best.
I compiled my lava lamp animations into a video together, by duplicating the orange and blue lava lamps I was able to do some simple animation in after effects of them pushing each other around in different variations.
Lava lamp compiled working files:
I made my showreel, which importing the lava lamp animation into caused me a bit of trouble, so I started reanimating it. Until Steve showed me how to easily resize the file in premiere by right-clicking on it and selecting scale to frame.
I completed my showreel title, which can be seen in my showreel. Its a simple write on text.
I finished my showreel:
I started a new cross dispiline project and finished it:
compiled film work for trimester:

Really helpful, I used this to replace layer in my box lid experiment
When replacing layers some of the letters when rotated with the old keyframes, had the letters upside down and when fixed the rotation had to be adjusted to match the rest again. I had to do this mainly by guessing.
A very simple tutorial was kinda surprised that it is done using stroke, but it makes sense. Very simple. I haven’t seen someone just copy stuff in after effects before. I’m used to always import it, I’m curious to see how it saves what you copied in. making it a shape layer I feel like could be optional, as I was thinking of doing this with different colour sprinkles, I think I would have to modify the technique, either just experimenting with how using a png and see how it animates it, as he turns off an option called “stroke sequentially”. I could also follow his method but draw fewer lines in the first place and then just make different layers different colours and animate each layer individually which could create an interesting effect it if I modify the timing of things.
This one is done completely in after effects which is interesting and I like how its dots and may use this method to layer onto the simple line one.
This one shows an offset option in trims paths, which offsets both the start and ends of the path, keeping both ends of the path moving. This method could be the best way for me to animate mine. He animates one line, although the line appears to be more of a dot because of the speed between the end and start are. He then uses an expression to multiply the number of lines, and with rotation creates a circle. The method includes making a shape layer, then drawing a straight line, adding trim paths and animating it, then in rotation typing the expression “index*360/number of lines wanted”, then duplicating the layers
This guy does a lot of the tutorials I have watched like the dot to line and is really good. This is also all with after effects and is similar to the previous tutorial I watched, but he animates the size and position of the rectangle path/line it bursts. Then adds a repeater and that’s how he duplicates his line and adjusts the rotation by typing 360/number of lines.
Copying Keyframes wasn’t working, I was missing the step where I selected the layer I wanted to copy onto, even though it was the same layer. Just also had to make sure I moved the time slider.
To do my circle burst tests I combined techniques that I learned from all the tutorials I watched.
Trying to figure out why the sound won’t work
This tutorial worked I think, premire decided to crash after I tried but the sound then worked.
To do the donut zoom, use the donut rotate file. Get a png of the donuts in the panels, then have the Oreo donut scale down to cover the donut on panel. Then as more panels are revealed they could slide onto screen from above or below in alternating order. The other donuts that are visible, just use the full size donut asset and then shrink it to the size of the Oreo donut when that donut appears and then have is as shrink at the same rate as the oreo donut. The background will also have to be animated/shrunk in the same way.
Tried this tutorial but once it got to the blur effect I noticed no difference in my text, whole his glowed so I decided to stop
