Almost every professional course, video or youtube channel has some short (5-10 second) logo animation of the video's creator.
These video intros are brand strengthening, they allow the watcher to quickly recognize the video's creator, and in the long term they help the video maker to be more publicly recognized and build his brand.
Every video maker (youtube channel, video course maker, and even companies with "success stories" videos) should have a video intro.
An intro is so easy and simple to make! You don’t need to pay a lot of money to someone else to do it for you. you can make professional 3d logo intro in less than 2 hours!
This course will teach you everything you need to know (A-Z) for making your own professional 3d video intro with your logo.
In this course I used Adobe After Effects CC, Adobe Illustrator, Element 3D. If you don’t have Adobe After Effects CC or Adobe Illustrator you can download them for 30 days trial.
The element 3D software will allow you to make & use 3d object (like your logo) without the need to learn complex 3d software.
Let me know if you have any more questions. I will be glad to see you in the course.

Since 1993, I have dedicated myself to learning and teaching how to shoot and edit professional video to people that who have no understanding in the subject without getting them all confused with the technical nomenclature.
Today every Mobile Phone has the ability to become a production platform and online video is the biggest, most expanding communication line of the planet.
My way of teaching is usually, taking you, the viewer with me while I do a whole project, from beginning to end, utilising the same techniques I used as an instructor to get you to be able to do the get the job done and use and apply the tools with confidence.
