After Effects: Creating Vector Graphics

Ian Robinson

About this course

Join Ian Robinson for a closer look at all of the different ways to animate vector graphics in Adobe After Effects. But rather than focusing on just the tools native to After Effects, he explores why you should consider integrating Photoshop and Illustrator into your vector motion-graphics workflow. Learn about time-saving vector creation tools native to each application, from the Custom Shape tool in Photoshop to the Blend tool in Illustrator. Ian also shows how to tie all of these elements together while exploring how to import and animate vectors in After Effects with shape layers and the dynamic effects Stroke and Vegas.


Topics include:

  • Analyzing how vectors behave across the Adobe Creative Cloud
  • Animating titles from Photoshop
  • Creating custom type from Illustrator 
  • Importing and copying vectors from Illustrator into After Effects
  • Animating with shape layers
  • Timing animation vectors
