Adobe After Effects

If you’re looking to explain a concept, product or social initiative, motion infographics are effective at engaging your audience and delivering your message.  For the newbie video editor and motion designer however, the task of conceptualizing and creating motion infographics in After Effects can be a daunting task.

Portland based animator and designer Michael Jones recently created a sharp motion infographic, and then broke down the process in a series of in-depth video tutorials.  He demonstrates how he created specific shots, by explaining the step by step process in After Effects (see the video tutorials below).  The final video has a faith-based message, but the techniques used can obviously be applied to any project where you need to outline information (corporate, commercial, churches, organizations, etc).
