You’ve seen this motion design element everywhere, now learn how to create it for yourself. Check out our video tutorial for animating banners in After Effects.
An animated banner is a great way to bring attention to your titles or elements in your videos. In the following After Effects tutorial I’ll demonstrate an EASY way to have a banner animate around any element in your video project.
We create this animated design using only shape layers and a bit of keyframing. The process utilizes After Effects fundamentals, so it’s easily accomplished regardless of your AE expertise. We’ll finish out the tutorial with a few subtle touches like shadows and a simple ‘loop’ expression.
Try experimenting with all sorts of elements for the banner to swirl around – maybe an infographic, video frame or still image. You could also apply a simple ‘swipe on’ to any of these elements to give it a cool custom reveal.
