Lesson 3. Animated L-Train Logo > Animating the script letter L

Animating the script letter L

Now that you've imported your files, you'll start the project by animating the script letter L. The Script L elements were prepared in Adobe Illustrator. The letter L was typed into an Illustrator document using the Palace Script MT font, and was then converted to artwork using the Create Outlines command.

Since the letterform overlaps itself twice, it is broken into three sections: upper, middle, and lower. An invisible box is positioned around the letter (a rectangle with no fill and no border) so that when the artwork is placed into the After Effects Composition window, all three pieces will align perfectly at the center of the screen. (You could also create crop marks from the rectangle.)
