What Is Next Style in InDesign CC?

In this tutorial, I will explore setting up Styles utilizing the Next Style feature and show a couple of very easy ways to use the feature in formatting long text.

Monster Jam: Slow Motion Action Effect

Learn how to create this popular motion effect using Photoshop to select and separate the parts of the image into their own layers, and then taking those layers into After Effects to animate the sequence.

Perspective Grid Enhancements in Illustrator CC

The Perspective Grid, which has been around for a while, has been improved dramatically in the latest release of Illustrator CC. So much so, it gets my vote for most improved feature in Illustrator. Why do I like it so much? The objects that are drawn on a perspective grid and the grid itself are now connected. So if you need to change the perspective of your completed drawing, you just change the grid and the whole drawing updates to your new perspective.

After Effects: Shatter Effect

In this tutorial, Daniel Bryant creates a 3D title effect using After Effects. He creates his title, then applies the shatter preset effect and tweaks the settings – calling a custom pattern to create 3D text. With the addition of a sky and cloud background, lens flare, and 3D camera, the animation becomes truly polished and professional.

Path Segment Reshape in Illustrator CC

The Convert Anchor Point tool in Adobe Illustrator now works to reshape path segments as well as anchor points. This makes it easier than ever to alter the shape of a selected object in ways that were never before possible.

Color Swap in Photoshop CC

Learn how to change the colors in your images using Photoshop CC’s color replacement tool, magic wand tool, and refine edge window.

These two new features in Animate 3 make creating projects all that much easier. State centering allows for the stage to be centered with the click of a button.

Using Adobe Typekit with InDesign CC

Jeff Witchel goes over some of advantages to typekit in InDesign. The menu options allow you to sort fonts by favorites and recently used. Clicking on typekit takes you to Adobe’s font library that has over 700 fonts. The fonts can be filtered to search easier and once you find what you want, it takes very little time to sync the font and begin using it in your layouts.
