Good for beginners,
This review is from: Creative Motion Graphic Titling for Film, Video, and the Web: Dynamic Motion Graphic Title Design (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What's this?)
If you are just delving into making creative titles for your videos, this book should provide you with many good ideas and the basic techniques required to create some pretty nice titles. To take advantage of much of what this book offers you should have AfterEffects and Photoshop (you can download a free one month trial from the Adobe website, but if you don't plan on buying AfterEffects most of this book will be irrelevant.)
If you've already had some experience creating titles, you might find that this book to be a bit too primary. I taught motion graphics at the University level for years and while parts of it would have been useful, most of this book would have been way too basic for my students.
I've included a video with some titles I put together for webvideos I've made. With the exception of the "Do It Yourself Virgin" graphics, all of the motion graphics shown here could be replicated fairly easily after doing the exercises in this book. The DIY Virgin title is keyframe animation using Illustrator-created graphics - if you are hoping to learn to do things like that, there are books specifically on animation in AfterEffects that will serve you better.
