10:10 Motion Graphics – Working with Lower Thirds
Lower Thirds are also referred to as L3s. Essentially a lower third is a non-intrusive motion graphic that displays necessary information such as name, place, fact or process. You may consider some details like:
Always consider how the L3 blends with the content it is displayed with. Design does matter!
Helvetica, Lato and most Sans Serif fonts look best. Take time to find the right fonts.
Let’s make a basic one together.
Did you know that some people make these for a living? Have a look at many of the lower thirds you can buy. Motion graphic templates are big business. Good thing we know how to make our own.
Lower Thirds Project:
- Create at least three lower thirds in addition to the one we make in class. That will qualify for a B.
- Make 4 lower thirds along with the one we made in class and you qualify for A status.
- Being creative will help your grade. Take your time.
- Each lower thirds should be animated. I encourage you to explore some effects too
- Place all of your lower thirds in one Project.
- Make individual compositions for each of your lower thirds
- Combine in one final composition
- Export as .mp4 for our viewing pleasure
- Filename: CustomLowerThirds_Lastname.mp4 and drop in the Assignment Dropbox in Google Classroom
- Save all your .aep files too!
This project will be Due on Monday, October 16th
Google Lower Thirds for inspiration
