Quickly Create a Social Callout with the Rampant Social 01 Style Kit
The Social Style Kit is one kit that’s an absolute essential for everyone, and I mean everyone. How many times have you found yourself scouring the internet to find a social media logo, only to become frustrated by the fact that now that you’ve found it, you now need to give it a cool animation. Well, along with the other awesome elements in the Rampant Social Kit, you now have fifteen, that’s right, fifteen different social media elements for you to add as a callout to the end of your pieces. This is why this Style Kit (remember, only $19) is an essential one. Here’s a quick way to add these elements to the end of your After Effects compositions.
Let’s take the Facebook logo as an example, and drop it into an After Effects composition, and size it and position it, assuming that we want to add four other logos to our logo string, for a grand total of five social callouts. Once we have sized our Facebook logo (remember, it animates as well, so you’ll want to add an “Enable Time Remapping” parameter to the element, so you can stretch it out as long as you need), and positioned it where we need it, we’re going to duplicate it four other times, and drag those logos into position, so they look a little like they do below.
Now, since all the other logos were created in the exact same size, all it needs is a quick ALT/OPT+Drag to replace those logos, and with a little footage thrown in behind, you now have the below.
This batch of elements alone will get you more mileage in your projects than any other one in all the collections combined. I would pay $19 just for these animated elements, and you get that, plus a whole bunch more in the Rampant Social Media Style Kit! Special thanks to Artbeats, for the use of the footage for this blog post!
