5 Fave Tutorials of 2014

If you’re like me, you love tutorials and use them as a constant resource to get better at motion graphics, animation, and design.

Of course, VideoCopilot and Greyscale Gorilla are awesome, and since their so well known, I thought I’d list a few tutorials I found from lesser known sources.

Each of these helped me this year, so enjoy!


#1 – Tracer Transitions

Awesome skill and pretty easy.  This tutorial is fast and there’s no dialogue, so you may have to watch it a few times.

#2- Mutating Cel Animation

Another C4d tutorial

#3 – Sequence Champignon

Flat 3d really came in this year and here is a great tutorial for creating it in C4d

#4 – How to emit particles from a shape

(without third party plug-in or TP)


Another fast and dialogue free tutorial.  Just another reminder how quick and easy it is to make amazing animations… when you have the right knowledge.

#5- Write On Effects With C4D #2 – Handwriting

Looks like a big C4d year in tutorials.  The famous write-on effect in Cinema

Honorable Mention

Yes, I have to toot my own horn.  Here’s a tutorial I made for CreativeCongo.  Flat 3D look using Element!
