Q. What is a ‘Logo Animation’?


A kind of some design or symbol that reflects or represents a brand, organisation, product, event or anything like that is known as logo. The animation of such logo to grab the attention of the viewers to promote the brand is Logo Animation.

The main motive of an animated logo is to make a more memorable image in the viewer’s mind to create brand awareness.


The perfect brand strategy consists not only the design and colour of a logo but it also includes certain motion and sound to make it stand out in the crowd.

Q. What are ‘Shape Layers’ in After Effects?


Shape layers contain vector graphics objects called shapes. By default, a shape consists of a path, a stroke, and a fill. Shape layers are not based on footage items. Layers that are not based on footage items are sometimes called synthetic layers. Text layers are also synthetic layers and are also composed of vector graphics objects, so many of the rules and guidelines that apply to text layers also apply to shape layers.

Q. What is ‘Speed Graph’ in After Effects?


You can fine-tune changes over time using the speed graph in the Graph Editor. The speed graph provides information about and control of the value and rate of change for all spatial and temporal values at any frame in a composition.


In the speed graph, changes in the graph height indicate changes in speed. Level values indicate constant speed; higher values indicate increased speed.


By adjusting the rise and fall of the speed graph, you can control how quickly or slowly a value changes from keyframe to keyframe. You can control the values approaching and leaving a keyframe together, or you can control each value separately. The incoming handle increases the speed or velocity when you drag it up and decreases the speed or velocity when you drag it down. The outgoing handle influences the next keyframe in the same way. You can also control the influence on speed by dragging the handles left or right.
