These are pretty broad questions. These types of titles can be done using After Effects and/or a 3D program. There are tons of tutorials out there. Be sure to explore Creative Cow's tutorial section. There are lots of stock audio sites and libraries out there for a variety of prices.
Are you talking about the Movie-List logo? Or the movie logos?
Hi there, and thanks for responding! I'm actually referring to the Movie-List logo.
Yes, I imagine there might be alot involved in the creation of something like this - I did notice that the sequence does a 3-quarter turn about halfway through. I'm assuming that manuever might not even be possible in AfterEffects, only in something like 3DS Max.
Any other insights you might be able to share? Are there specific named effects or functions that would create this sequence that I could look-up online?
Thanks for responding!
You need to look into the 3D (sometimes called 2.5D) functionality of After Effects.
Well, the actual effect is simple, but of course you need to learn some of the basics. For the Movies List stuff, in the simplest of scenarios, you'd turn the logo into a 3D layer, pre-compose it an then apply effects like CC Light Rays. Of course for full 3D you will have to resort to a 3D program - AE does not do 3D objects with volume at this point. At any rate, take the time to have a look at the AE manual.
Regarding your other question: The perception of sound is very much dependent on the context and how different sounds mix. Therefore it may be a stretch to go looking for instant perfect sound. Ultimately all the great movie sounds start out as simple "neutrally" recorded snippets and then are beefed up with audio effects and proper mixing. You might end up being disappointed if you hope to find finesed effects as they are used in "Star Wars" or other such movies and then realize that the raw pieces do not sound at all too impressive. Therfore you'll eventually have to venture into that area as well and learn Premieres audio processing tools...
