Futuristic UI Freebie

I start­ed this lit­tle motion graph­ics project some­time in the 2.78 days, orig­i­nal­ly using Blender Render but the lack of nodes and the view­port per­for­mance made it more com­pli­cat­ed than it had to be. But live in the future now! Eevee and the UI improve­ments over the last few releas­es have made this a lot more fun.

Moving slices with Blender

Welcome to anoth­er motion graph­ics quick tip! This time we are look­ing at a basic overview of the mov­ing slices effect in Blender. You can often find this effect in slideshows and tran­si­tions. It looks best when com­bined with some ani­ma­tion in the tex­tures, be it scal­ing or mov­ing them. This tip uses NLA tracks to

Circle Bursts in Blender

2D motion graph­ics aren’t the domain of After Effects alone, Blender is becom­ing more and more capa­ble as a mograph tool. In this quick tip I’ll show you how to make a sim­ple pop­ping effect (some­times called Circle Burst). This is an updat­ed video ver­sion of one of the first tuto­ri­als I post­ed on this site. This is

EXP 002 // Bacteria

Time for anoth­er ani­ma­tion exper­i­ment in Blender. This time inspired by the end­ing sequence of the first episodes of Ergo Proxy

EXP 001 // Dynamic Paint Liquid

I’ve always seen Dynamic Paint as one of those exot­ic things in Blender that could only be use­ful for one or two odd things. Oh, how wrong I was

Twist Intro released

I’ve final­ly released my first motion graph­ics tem­plate in the Blender Market. This is some­thing that I’ve been want­i­ng to get on for a long time.

Embers

Long time no post! I’ve been quite busy with edi­to­r­i­al work and Render+ 0.6. And a new ver­sion of this site, of course 🙂

Abstract Blob intro

Turns out, dri­vers can be use­ful for motion graph­ics too. Who would have thought some­thing like that?

2D Animated Circles

I’ve been asked a cou­ple of times how I made the 2D cir­cles in Kyary ani­ma­tion. The dis­a­pear­ing cir­cles are pret­ty com­mon in motion and ani­ma­tions, and they’re sur­pris­ing­ly easy to do in Blender.
