Creating Shapes

I had a lot of fun with this assignment. We only needed to create a few shapes, incorporate a mask and effect, but I wanted to try creating an environment.


  1. Open After Effects
  2. Create a new composition
  3. Make various Shape Layers in the Composition window (Basic and Complex shapes)
  4. Add Strokes to 1 or more shapes
  5. Use keyframes to add movement using the Position (P) controls for each Layer
  6. Use mask to hide and reveal a precomposed layer
  7. Add text in a precomposed layer
  8. Animate and mask text in precomp.
  9. Export your project using Media Encoder

Programs used:
