Holidays #1 + Adobe After Effects

Thursday, June 21, 2012

Hey thereee :D

I am on my holidays right now which is almost ending, but I'm not those kind of people who despise holidays because they're so boring and they want to go back to school. Uh-uh not me. No matter how bored I am at home, I will find something to do... even if it's sleeping or just lying on my bed, staring at my ceiling. Because I prefer holidays than school. And that's technically still something to do.

The holidays are ending and I am so bummed I have to be swamped with homework and studies again. And since this is the 2nd semester, the road is going to get bumpier, challenges are getting harder, and the highs are getting higher. So much to study in so little time. Not looking forward to it.

But anyways, I'll talk about my holidays in another blog post I'll whip out later. Or tomorrow. Depending on how procrastinating I feel.

What I primarily want to share with everyone in this post is a 10second video I made in Adobe After Effects! This 10seconds video took me at least 3 hours. Non-stop. No toilet or water breaks. Crazy. But of course, I'm a total AE noob.

And my laptop only has 4GB RAM :'( Probably one of my biggest mistakes ever. Because it is impossible to RAM preview videos with video clips and photos in it. Therefore I made one with text. Text based on teens. Yeah it's random. It's suppose to be:
He sounded a similar call to young women. “As I contemplate all that you face in the world today,” he said, “One word comes to my mind. It describes an attribute needed by all of us but one which you—at this time of your life and in this world—will need particularly. That attribute is courage . . . courage to refrain from judging others . . . courage to be chaste and virtuous; and . . . courage to stand firm for truth and righteousness”
Yeah, the video didn't turn out to be the whole quote, just one sentence... HAHA I didn't realize it would take me so long okay! In the beginning of the video-making, I was quite motivated in that LET'S DO THIS mood. And then 3 hours later, I go... I NEED TO STOP FOR A WHILE. Yup.

I watched this kinetic and rhythmic typography thing last year and I was so interested in making one. So I tried Adobe After Effects, but SPM was just around the corner so I stopped practicing. Now that I'm on break and I'd like to do something productive, I tried After Effects again :)

But I'm glad I got to explore the possibilities of Adobe After Effects. You can make a lot of cool stuff with that. And I probably will! :)

I was just playing around with it, so don't mind the same words and whatever choppiness you see. Also, before you watch this, don't put your audio levels too high lol.

And maybe I'll try kinetic typography next. :)
