Hey guys and welcome to today's Tutpad tutorial. We'll start off by preparing the document we're going to work on. Here, I have a Freepik document I downloaded from the website, so we'll go to File > New, and create a document that we'll call "3d mobile phone". Make it 1,000 by 1,000 pixels, okay. And now what we'll do is, copy the front part of this cell phone with Ctrl + C or Command + C. And now the document's been created, Ctrl + V to paste. In the alignment panel, we'll align it to artboard. If you don't see this option, then you need to click here to show more options. And we'll place it right here in the middle. So create a new layer, and we'll copy the other part of the cell phone with Ctrl + C again. The back part, and Ctrl + V to paste. As you can see, it's pasted to the same layer. So Ctrl + Z to undo that, then on the second layer Ctrl + V again to paste. There we go, make sure it's centered. So I'll name this one "in front". Okay, and I'll name this one "behind", the back part of the cell phone. And between these two, I'm going to add another layer. We'll Ctrl + V to paste again, making sure it's in the middle. Then in the Pathfinder panel, we select Unite. And we're going to change the fill color to black. Now I can't do this because the original Freepik file was created with this gradient you see here. So I need to go to the Appearance panel and there, I can select the fill and then I can choose black. There we go! So I've got the back part here behind. This middle part, I'll name extrude. So this layer is going to help us add that thickness to the cellphone and make it look 3d. Okay, and then we've got the front part of the cell. We'll now move over to After Effects, so right click here to import a file. Although before this, we need to save what we've just done, so I'll go back and do that, save as, we'll put 3d mobile phone. Okay. Back to After Effects, then we can import the file. So we'll double click on our file, set the import kinds of composition, leave the footage dimensions on layer size. Okay, now double click on the file and here we have our cell phone. But we still need to make it 3d. So first what we'll do is, change this here to two views. And as you can see, the top view at the moment looks the same as the active camera view because obviously they aren't 3d layers. So we need to click here on toggle switches, and we'll select the draft 3d for
these three layers here, like this. And now you see how it's changed. As we zoom in, you can see that on the in front layer, well, this is wider than the other layers, even though Tthey're actually the same size, okay. So why is that? Well, I've done this so you can see that sometimes when you create a file in Illustrator, even though the dimensions look like this. Well if we press Ctrl + Y in the in front layer, ok, Ctrl + Y, you see that there are some elements here that you can't see on our original file. These might have been used to create some kind of effect, like a gradient for example. But this won't be a problem for our project at all, so you don't really need to worry about that. So what do we need to do? The in front layer needs to be brought forward. So we'll bring the z-axis a little bit forward. And we then need to push the behind layer back, around here. We'll right-click, New camera, ok? Then in the camera options, we're going to rotate, so we got this effect you see here, like this. And we can now see that it looks a bit more 3d. Although here, it looks like it's hollow, right? So we'll set this to full, so you can see what I mean. The thickness of the cellphone will just depend on how far away I place the back of it, the behind layer. If I put it here, we can then fill it in with the extrude layer. But I'm actually gonna put it around here, more or less. So in extrude, what we'll do is, press Ctrl + D to duplicate it, move it back a little in the z-axis. And then we'll just go like this successively pressing Ctrl + D, duplicating and placing behind until all this space is filled, like that. Ok. Great! Now switch the view to just one, and now if we look in the camera, you can see that we have this 3d effect already. And it wasn't really very difficult. I think it was quite simple. Now, it's time to move on to the animation, so let's get rid of the camera. I will right click to create a new composition that we'll name animation. I'll make it 1920 by 1080 pixels. Duration of seven seconds, 29.7 frames per second, ok. Now I'll right-click here, and I'll select news solid. And I'll change the name to background, okay? Then go to Effect > Generate > Gradient ramp. We'll set the start color to a gray, something like this. Yeah. Okay. We'll make it a radial gradient. And then we'll place this gray at the bottom, like this. And then we'll put this white over here. Now lock the background. And now, we need to place this 3d cellphone file inside our composition here. And then here we have it ready to animate. So if we right click here and select new camera, we'll see that we can't modify anything. And that's because we need to add the 3d layer switches here. But it's very flat, right? It doesn't look very 3d. So just to see that 3d effect we created, we need to right click here, on collapse transformations, okay this one here, so we'll click that and there we go. Now if we zoom right in, we'll lose quality, can you see? So what can we do about that? Well, we need to first return to our 3d mobile phone composition and we'll select collapse transformations in the behind layer, same for the in front. And then when we go into the animation, we can see that the quality is now much better. For now, we're going to deactivate these options, okay? Just so the processing is faster. So we'll get rid of this camera. Delete and then we'll begin with our animation. So firstly, we'll go to the transform options. And we'll add a keyframe to the scale, another on the Y rotation. There we go! At the beginning, we'll set the scale to 355%. Now you see how all these adjust at the same time, right? And that's because the constrain proportions option is activated. We'll now go to second one frame five, place another keyframe on the scale there. This one we'll set to 85%. And we get this effect. And for the Y rotation, at the beginning, we'll set it at -30 degrees. When it gets to second one frame five, we'll then put it down to 0 degrees. And then we get this effect that you see now. Now we'll move on to second two frame ten. And here, on the rotation, we'll put 355 degrees, making it turn around like this. And then on second one frame twenty five, set the scale to 120%. So let's have a preview. We'll set this here to half, so we get a quicker preview. And there we go! So that's what we have up to now. But using the graph editor, we're going to improve this animation. So let's go to frame 25, I will add another keyframe to the position. And now we'll move right the way down to second five. And here we're going to adjust the position on the X-axis, which is this one right here, five eighty. And then when we preview, we have this. So select all the keyframes, right click > keyframe assistant > easy ease. We need to adjust the scale, okay, to make it a quick animation. So click on the first keyframe we have on the scale and we'll go into the graph editor. Make sure you're in the Edit Speed Graph. So let's adjust this anchor point here around here, like this, press down Shift at the same time, so it doesn't move. So it moves in a straight line. We'll move this other point this way and like this, we're going to start with a quick animation, so let's take a look. This is what we have. And after this, on the Y rotation, okay, we have this, so we'll leave this curve as it is. But right on this turn, we need to make it a little bit faster, okay, so we're in this edit speed graph remember. Let's click here on this anchor point, move it this way, almost to the middle. And then when we preview, we get this effect. Let's have a look from the beginning. And there we have it! Now, on the position, we can create a similar effect to the rotation. So more or less adjusting it like this. And see how on second two frame ten, the curve should be like this, okay? So let's take a look. Okay, we'll exit the graph editor, and we're going to create a few more keyframes. So go to second five and set the rotation to 380 degrees. Okay, so we'll put it in and see that when we do that, we get a 1x and a + 20 degrees, so 1x means that it turns all the way around, so 360 degrees. And plus 20, that's 380. So preview to see how it looks. I think that's great. Maybe, we could adjust the position slightly, like this. Okay, let's have a look. Before we carry on with the animation, what we're going to do is, create the text that will appear. So we'll click on the Text tool and type in here "how to create". Now, I'm using the Verdana font in bold. Then I'll click here to select toggle mask and shape path visibility. And I'll increase the font size to 77 pixels, and we can convert it into a 3d layer. Using the Pan behind tool, we'll move the anchor point over here like this. Okay, Ctrl + Z to undo that because we could also do this here in the paragraph window. So if we click on left align tool, we'll move this a little more to the center. In the transform options, we're going to adjust the position. So we'll put 795 here, and 305 on the y-axis. Press Ctrl + D to duplicate, move the text down on the y-axis. And we can change this text to 3d mobile phone. I'll keep the same font, but I'll change the size to 65 pixels, and I'll make it regular. So just adjust it to around here, Ctrl + D again to duplicate, you'll move it down like this. Then we'll change this text to Illustrator and After Effects. And I'll change it to italic, and the size to 38 pixels. We'll zoom in, so we can move it around here like this using the Pan behind tool or move the anchor point to around here. Now we're going to create a very basic animation on the y axis of the rotation. So selecting these three layers, press R on your keyboard for the rotation, go to second 2 frame 10, and that will add a keyframe to the Y rotation. Press U twice, so we can see this animation. And now we need to adjust the time, so for it to start around here. Now we'll go forward one second, so to second 3 frame 10, and there we'll add another keyframe. Then we'll go to the beginning, and we'll remove the eye from this 3d mobile phone composition. And what we'll do here is, a movement that goes back. Okay, like this. Right until we can't see it. This is around -90 degrees. Select the six keyframes, right click > Keyframe Assistant > Easy Ease. Once selected, then go to the graph editor, and then we'll go to the edit value graph. Select the keyframes down here. Okay. There are three. We'll grab this point here and move it up like this, and that gives us a bounce effect. So let's preview. Okay, you see there that little bounce at the end. Now we need to adjust this layer. Second 2 frame 25, so we'll move it right here. And the next one at second 3 frame 10, here. Let's take a look! There we go. Okay, let's bring back the cell phone. But when we preview, now we have a slight problem there, see how they overlap. So we could try and put it at the top, you know like this, but the problem is still there. This is because we need to adjust the z-axis. So let's just set it to two views, and here we can see where the text layers cross over and the animation of the 3d cell phone. So what do we do? Well, we need to select these three text layers. And then just move them back a little, like this, on the Z axis. Press S to scale, and we'll increase that slightly, to 105. And why do we do that? Well, because when we adjust the Z axis, it looks smaller. So now when we preview, the problem is solved. Let's set this back to one view. And there we have the animation now, so I think it's looking pretty good. The next step is to make the cell phone and the text disappear. So in 3d mobile phone, press U. Okay, U here to see the keyframes, go up to second 6 frame 25. And on the position, we'll add a keyframe. And on the X axis is where we're going to make it disappear. I want you to just observe something here. So inside my animation, we have this straight line. So we want to make this go like this, but if you look here, this line has appeared on the left, see? So we'll set that X axis to 2200 on the position, and see now how the line gets longer. And now see how this has modified the animation. So it goes quite a lot to the left. See? And it's created a curve right here, which we need to get rid of. So we're going to right click on this key frame and select Keyframe Interpolation. And Spacial Interpolation, we'll set it to Linear. Okay, and now we should have got rid of that curve. Let's take a look. At second 6 frame 25, we're also going to adjust the rotation. So we're going to remove this 360 degree turn by placing 0x here, and -145 degrees. So it goes around like this. But we're also going to make some adjustments in the graph editor. So we'll go to the Edit Speed Graph. Now the position is like this, so we'll go to the Y rotation and move these points more or less to about here. So we want the animation of the rotation to be quick at the beginning. It's a preview and there we have it. Maybe we could adjust it a little bit more. We'll adjust the position a little bit also. Okay, like this. Preview and we get this effect. Great! Let's take a look at the whole thing. Now remember you can make more adjustments in the graph editor, if you like, it's up to you. Now we need to also make the text disappear. So we'll select the three texts, go to Layer > Pre-compose, and we'll name this composition "text". Around this area here, we're going to make a rectangle. And with our text composition selected, we'll click to create a mask like this, more or less. In mask, add a keyframe to the mask path and we'll move it forward like this. Another keyframe here and keep going forward. Okay? Another one here. Actually, we don't need these first two ones, so we can get rid of those. And right when it starts to turn around here. Okay. So we'll go to this mask, press Ctrl + T, and we'll now make it smaller. And see how a keyframe was automatically created here. So we'll move forward again, Ctrl + T, make it smaller. Again the same, and as we go along, you see that keyframes are automatically created. And here now you see we can't see the text anymore. Let's preview. Okay, so here, there's a slight problem. It disappears before it should, so we'll do another keyframe here, and we'll see how another one is created automatically. Now let's test it out. Ctrl + T again to move forward. Okay again. Okay, let's just preview it again to make sure it's now okay. Yeah, there we go, that's great. The very last thing we're going to create is a flare effect. So we'll right-click > New solid, and we'll name it flare. If we make it white, then we'll see that there is a problem. So go to Effect > Generate > Lens flare. And can you see that nothing appears? So we need to change the color of the solid to black. Okay? Set the type to 105 millimeters prime and the brightness to 50%. But as you can see, we can't see our animation like this. So we need to select Toggle Switches, and then we'll set the mode here to add. And now we can see it. This point here is so that we can animate the flare, so we're going to place it around here. Put 225 on the X axis and 165 on the Y axis. Now you see how this point has moved right here. At second zero, we'll add another keyframe. Now at second 6 frame 25, we're going to place it around here, okay? Press U and now you'll see that when we drag the circle, a new keyframe is automatically created. So let's take a look. And there we have our flare. Remember that you can adjust it depending on your own preferences, so it doesn't have to be exactly the same as me. Maybe I'll put it a little bit higher. So let's set the view to full. Going back to the beginning, remember that if we want optimum quality from the Illustrator file, then we need to go into this composition and select the collapse transformations that we did at the beginning. We can select it here for behind, and then also for the in front. Now this is possible because they're vector images. So now when we preview, the quality is great. So I really hope these techniques I've shown you were useful and you can apply them to your own projects. Like I said, you could use them to create a promo or a video to advertise an app for example using an illustrator file that you can then animate. Thanks very much for watching! And I'll see you next time for another Tutpad tutorial. Bye!
