I'm wanting to make this promo graphic, and I really like this graphic, but I dont know where so start as it looks quiet complex when it enters the screen. So what steps can I take in creating this graphic?

- Graphic enters at - 0:09 seconds






Many Thanks!

Steve

Check out this tutorial for AE6 on creating 3D text/textures. It also has some free texture presets, so it should get you pretty close to creating what you need. If you have an earlier version of AE there are other ways of achieving that look also, but not they are a bit trickier.

Thanks John! Just the only issue is, it manly focuses on 3D text rather then what im looking for in the promo graphic that opens at 9 seconds of the video. I work in After Effects CS6, do you think you could give me a example? or run through steps for me in accomplishing the graphic.

Many thanks!

Steve

Can you be more precise about what is happening at 9 seconds that you are trying to accomplish. I see the 3D text with a reflective texture---not sure what else is happening there. Thanks

Is the lower third graphics saying, "new. Tonight 8.30". Sorry, look from 10 seconds.

I'm going to assume you are fairly new to AE so I'm going to suggest you a few places for you to start learning. For the lower third, you can create that with some shape layers, animated masks, and animating opacity and for the text using a layer to mask it off and animating position.

Take a look at these tutorials and if you have some specific questions about that lower third, let me know and we can work it out: Getting started with After Effects (CS4, CS5, CS5.5, CS6, & CC)---this is an all encompassing link to help beginners with AE. Check out point 4---with links to 2 free training series. The one at VideoCoPilot is quick and will probably cover most of the techniques to create that lower third(it doesn't cover shape layers, but you could do the same with solids and masks). Andrew Devis' series goes into much more depth, but is a lot longer.

Also here's a free tutorial on creating lower thirds that I think will cover 90% of what would be needed to create your the lower third in that video. Design Your Own Broadcast Lower Thirds
