Section 1: Adding a Title Screen and Layer Mask
Title Screens are a great way to brand a video. In our example, we use our Phlearn Logo for the title. If you’ve been following along with our series, all of this should feel familiar.
We start by creating a new video group. We then grab the file we want for our title (in this case it’s our Phlearn Logo) and we drag that into the new video group. We then Transform our logo to the exact Size we want it to be. In our Timeline, our title is on top of all our footage- so we see the Logo on top of our whole video.
In order to add a bit more interest to our title, we add a Layer Mask. We use keyframes on our layer mask to animate what’s visible with our Logo at a specific time!
Section 2: Using Layer Effects Animations
Now that we have our layer mask, we show you how to animate a layer effect throughout time. We choose a drop shadow for our Layer Effect. Then we play with the blending modes, Opacity, and Distance.
Now that the Layer Effect is visible, we keyframe the movements of our Drop Shadow. We change the Angle of the Drop Shadow from one side to the other. Because it’s keyframed, we see the drop shadow move as time goes on. Very cool! This is just a basic example of how you can animate Layer Effects for video in Photoshop.
We end things off by reviewing our final video, and explain some settings so you can export your video and display it on the Web!
