After making the first ident, my partner set to work on the more complex and technical ident. For the first ident we just used Motion. For this one, we wanted to have a continuous animation as opposed to the first ident which just had the short glow effect of the tree. However, we did want a short effect at the end of the ident to make it look even more professional.
- The first thing Adam did was to get the footage of the waves crashing. The name we had in mind was ‘Tsunami Productions’ so, we wanted to have something which represented this.
- The next thing he did was to add the text (this was the “productions”) and he added a basic blur in effect to add some animation to the ident.
- The third thing my partner did was that we added another layer of text. This was underlaid over the video footage of the waves.
- Adam then added an image mask of the waves and then dragged the ‘Tsunami’ titles over the image mask. It created like a window effect since the waves were seeping through the text.
Here is the final product:
