Digital Juice Motion Designer's Toolkit 6 - COMPLETE with INDEX | 68.86 GB
Pushing the Motions Designer's Toolkit line ever closer to the edge, Digital Juice breaks new ground with two brand new packages of gritty, grunge-soaked urban animated elements in the form of Motion Designer's Toolkits 6 & 7. These 2 Volumes of jittery, artistic, roughly-hewn animations took a team of over 40 different artists from a wide variety of artistic fields -- pencil and tablet sketchers, vector design pros, traditional fine artists and a dedicated crew of animators -- well over 8 months to hammer out and whittle down to the collections you see before you.The possible sources and styles for grungey, urban art elements were so limitless that the hardest task in putting these volumes together was in deciding just which elements made the cut. From stylized tree branches to dirt-filled and scratched surface tiles, from city skylines and angry brush strokes to industrial landscape and pavement cracks.
-- if it portrayed the urban mood in all its facets, it found its way into these two volumes. Motion Designer's Toolkit 6 contains 17 unique categories of these grunge-infused elements while Motion Designer's Toolkit 7 has 20.But these collections are more than just a collection of stylized elements. More than ever, we created these animations to be a useful and ongoing resource for your production work for years to come. Whether it's rough framing elements or background textures, revealing paint strokes in different weights and styles or jagged edges with a character that adds a rough and ready look to an over-polished shot -- almost every element is offered as both a ready-to-use prerendered animation AND a customizable After Effects project file. So go ahead, build your own vision of the future imperfect, or evoke the decadence and decay of a bygone era -- or maybe, just have a little fun playing in the dirt.

Who needs Motion Designer's Toolkit?
Whether you're a video editor, motion designer, or animator you'll find the Motion Designer's Toolkits an invaluable addition to your creative arsenal. Each volume gives you thousands of animated elements that can be combined in limitless ways to create your own new unique animations.
Do I have to know or use After Effects?
No. While for most animations we do include the After Effects (AE) projects it's entirely possible and even recommended to use the pre-rendered animations included on the DVDs; and those can be used with any editing or animation software.Of course if you do know and use AE you'll have the extra ability to customize the original animation to your heart's content.
I'm just learning After Effects (or Motion). Is this product too advanced for me?
"The great thing about the Motion Designer's Toolkits is the fact that they rise to your level. If you're an advanced After Effects user you'll find you have all the control you need to customize and tweak animations to your specifications.If you're new to motion design or just don't do it full time you'll find it easy to drag and drop animations right to the timeline. You won't have to worry about complex keyframing (that can take hours). Instead you can concentrate on getting the look and feel you want. If you're trying to learn After Effects you'll love the fact that you have access to the original projects that will be a treasure trove of valuable ideas, tips, and tricks to accelerate your learning.
I use After Effects regularly, and could create most of the animations in the package. Why should I buy when I can just create them myself?
Time is money and even the simplest elements of an animation can take 5-20 minutes and complex elements can take hours or days. Because we are talking about elements, the end result is going to be determined by how you composite and combine the pieces. Better yet, since generally you'll find a matching AE file you can truly use MDT as just a jumping off point for your own custom creations.
