Create an LED Logo Animation Effect in Ae

Noble Kreative shows how to create an LED logo animation using Ae standard tools.

Noble Kreative’s Najib Khayati shows how to create an LED logo animation or a light chase effect that only uses After Effects standard tools and no specialized 3rd party plugins. If you suspected that the base of the effect might use Ae’s Vegas effect, then you’d be right. As always, Khayati works procedurally using pre-comps that will allow you to change out the logo without ruining the animation and the effect.

The tutorial comes as another installment to Khayati’s Motion Graphics series that looks into the foundational techniques needed to create today’s motion work. If you’ve missed episodes, check out the rest of the series here.
