This video features some fun motion graphics integrated into a promotional video for the NSMBA.
Each “trail head” image was composited together from stills. Instead of manually adding accelerating cuts between these composits, each image initially had the same duration. The acceleration in duration of each image was achieved using a time warp – this saved me a lot of editing time and allowed me to make a very accurate acceleration curve.
Spinning the NSMA wheel on their logo was completed entirely in 2D using components of their original logo. The basic concept was to remove the perspective, animate the rotation of the wheel, and add the perspective back in. With motion blur on and a camera fly-through, the result looks pretty cool.Tags: motion graphics, vfx, video
