Science Fiction User Interface with iExpressions Tutorial


This is a live demo recorded at the aescripts + aeplugins booth at NAB 2014. Mathias explains how to create some motion graphics in After Effects with the help of iExpressions.

We take a look at different elements of an animated science fiction user interface - including random texts, animated shapes and much more. But you also learn something more general about good design and why less is often more.
