Derek Lieu posts a compilation of his list of go-to “25 things” that will make your motion graphics project more visually interesting. If you have been creating motion graphics for a while, these will be pretty basic to you. If however, you are just getting started out, this can help you get oriented as to what types of things might make your work a little better.
This is a compilation of mostly simple things I see in a lot of motion graphics tutorials or just basic elements of motion graphics
Derek notes that this is by no means a recipe as much as it is a checklist of ingredients for consideration the next time you are designing a piece. Derek has a post covering the 25 simple things to make your motion graphics better, going a bit more in depth with each point.
The 25 points as seen by Derek are gradients, vignettes, gestures, color grading, shadows, contrast, moving backgrounds, glow, light sweep, light rays, lens flares, slams, motion blur, staggered animation, graph editing, bounce, mattes, color transitions, twitching, particles, compositing, camera moves, DOF, Camera Shake and 3D Type.
