Adding motion graphics to a project can instantly make it seem more professional, but it’s hard if you don’t have the software or skills yet to work an advanced program like After Effects or Apple Motion. Fear not, with this tutorial and a little help from our sister site, Placeit, you can now create professional-quality animations online, no animation suite needed.
Placeit has an easy-to use logo reveal animation builder. Here’s how it works:
1. Pick a Template
First, pick a template that works with your project. For this example, I’ve selected the template Logo
Animation – Logo Behind Wave (it has a nice and swooshy wave motif).
2. Resize Your Logo
Resize your image to be 1800px by 1000px in Photoshop or a similar program. You don’t have to do this as you’ll be given a crop option later, but it’ll make sure you have it looking how you want it. If your logo needs transparency around it, remember to save as a PNG file.
For my example, I’m using Photography
Logo Templates from Elements.
3. Upload Your Logo and Audio Files
Hit upload and add your resized, saved image. You can add an audio track to your logo reveal too.
I’m not going to do that right now, but you can find some great new audio
tracks over at Envato Elements.
Once uploaded, the site will pop up with your logo asking
you to crop to the desired size – you can essentially zoom in and out within
the set frame size
4. Generate The Reveal
Once your image has uploaded, you’ll be able to click the
Generate button and you’ll get a notification that your video is being
You’ll then see a working preview of your logo reveal and
you can go ahead and hit download!
5. Add the Logo Reveal to Your Video
You are done! Head over to your editor and import the new logo animation video file to use the animation with your video project.
