In this quick and easy tutorial. We are going to take a look at how easy it can be to make an eye catching animation. We are going to use stock tools within After Effects. From gradients to Vector shapes. AE is still a top motion graphic engine. This effect works great when trying to create cool background motion loops. Or if you have a heavy text driven animation and you want something subtle in the background that won't take away from your text.
A screen capture of the squad car and news van for "On the Run" being UV mapped and texture painted. Unfortunately some of the UV mapping for the squad car was not recorded and some of the texture painting for the news van was removed because I struggled with it so much and went through eight to ten versions.
