MIDI data can prove helpful in many applications – here is how to use MIDI data in After Effects and how to create MIDI Triggered Animation.

A new School of Motion’s day 5 of 30 days of After Effects, bringing you an After Effects tutorial a day, Monday through Friday, for 30 days posts day 5 with a look at using Midi Data inside of After Effects. Check out day 5, Using MIDI Triggered Animation in After Effects here.

School of Motion is back after a long hiatus, and the site is relaunching with a big promotional campaign called 30 Days of After Effects. The event is sponsored by the Motion Design Department @ The Ringling College of Art & Design.

In addition to releasing a new video every Monday-Friday for the next 6 weeks, School of Motion and Ringling have partnered up to create a contest for visitors to the site. A user-submitted project will be selected and reviewed by the Motion Design staff, with the review-session being filmed and shared on School of Motion and Ringling social media. The winner also gets a 30-minute Animation Coaching session with Joey Korenman from School of Motion, and publicity from the contest.
