Opposite :shadow/light

I used the opposites of shadow and light to create a MG animation. I was inspired by the seesaw. I used the seesaw to simulate the sunrise and sunset of the sun and the moon. As the sun rises and sets, the color of the background changes from light to dark.

In this animation I practiced how to make color changes using AE.

During the production I found that the speed of the sun and the moon sitting on the warp to the sun and the moon bouncing up to the sky is not the same. I had a hard time controlling both speeds.


While making this animation, I realized that I still had many questions about the laws of object movement in animations made with AE.

For example:

  1. There is no shape change when the sphere falls on the warp.
  2. The speed of the sphere rising and falling is also different.
  3. In the first version, the speed of the seesaw and the speed of the sphere did not match, resulting in the sphere bouncing up before the seesaw fell.

I eventually made them look more natural through constant adjustments.
