Not a big poster in The Gallery but over the festive period, with some time off work, I decided to get to know Adobe After Effects.
I always felt it was a shame BBC News didn't give their title sequences more of a refresh with the move to Broadcasting House, even if they kept within the same style. I thought this might be a good way to learn how to use After Effects by having a go myself. Perhaps these could be titles to launch this year ahead of the General Election? I would envisage scrapping the trundle cam (at least for the TOTH
), which I always felt was over-the-top and unnecessary.
Whilst I know I'll probably never live up to some of the BBC News mocks seen here recently - I'm looking at you mdtauk
- I'm quite happy with this considering a week ago I didn't have a clue how to start with After Effects. But I'd like to do more - any suggestions on how this can be improved would be very welcome, including any After Effects tips which might also help make this video better!
