Welcome! My name is Alan Shisko, and I'm a freelance motion graphics artist working out of Toronto, Canada. I've been very lucky in my career to have had many inspiring teachers, and decided to start this blog to give back to the community that has enriched me both technically and aesthetically. Perhaps my words and images will inspire you to do the same! If you wish, take a minute to view my demo reel at Shisko.com, or view a comprehensive gallery of my past work Here.

Framing Keys

This little mini-tutorial covers some fairly rudimentary strategies when it comes to selecting keyframes, creating consistent acceleration/ deceleration profiles (eases) and moving layers (with their entire motion path) when keyframes already exist. Yep, it SOUNDS like After Effects 101 type stuff, but you may find that there are a couple of little tricks in here that even more experienced folks might not know about.

Take a look at the tutorial (Quicktime, h264, 4:44, 9 mb) HERE.

Hey Alan, with the second tip you don't even need to have the time indicator positioned over a keyframe. As long as all keyframes are selected you can click and drag directly on any of the spatial keyframes in the comp panel to move the path. :)
