Sound Design for Motion Graphics

via LinkedIn Learning


Conceive and execute a sound design for a motion graphics project with Audition CC.

Editors and motion graphics artists create visually stunning graphics; however, without a compelling sound design, their hard work can fall flat. Luckily, Adobe Audition CC offers a variety of tools to import, sculpt, and finesse your sound design while working with the motion graphics video in the timeline.

This course is based on a 30-second graphics project, which is used to demonstrate concepts ranging from sound selection and spotting to sound creation and manipulation. Along the way, author Scott Hirsch provides an in-depth look at Audition's Multitrack and Waveform Editors, as well as the process of round-tripping a project to Premiere Pro. Plus, he'll show how to create your own riveting sound effects from scratch and start building a library you can use for future projects.
