Totally doable using After Effects as it comes out of the box.
I'd be making each letter a separate layer, turning that layer into a matte for the colour, which would be provided by the gradient ramp effect (there's a subtle red-purple gradient in the letters). The reveal would be done by either making an animated mask to control the moving colour, or the ...
The whole premise of vector graphics is that there is a drawing engine in the output device that can interpret graphical commands and output shapes and fonts at the maximum resolution of its rasterizer.
In simple terms, when someone produces a Postscript projector or media player, there will be a video equivalent of vector graphics.
But in another sense, ...
Click the layer were your made the keyframes
Press U or P to reveal the keyframes
Highlight the keyframes. You will know it's highlighted since the color of the keyframes is colored blue(see screenshot below)
CTRL + C to copy the keyframes
Move your time indicator to the next time you wanted
CTRL + V to paste the keyframe
Note: You need to properly copy the ...
If I have to make this manually, I would do the following:
Create/Draw the blue Logo in Illustrator as its seen in the final frame.
Breakdown and place spread ink into separate layers, like 4 or more.
To make the drawing animation, create a path "using pen tool" along the lines of the blue Logo, make sure that the path is thick enough to cover the lines.
I would keep the .ai files in Illustrator. Then import them to After Effects and do any photoshop-style layering in there, unless there's anything really complex that AE can't do. Otherwise you're adding an extra step that you possibly don't need. Each time you update the changes in Illustrator, you should see them reflected in AE after a few seconds. ...
If the effects and textures you add in Photoshop are raster (pixel) based, then you'll lose the advantages of vectors in the process. I'd probably do the stylisation in AE, but if you're more familiar with PS do it there, just use a high enough resolution that you won't be giving yourself headaches in AE.
Make your strokes using the pen tool directly as a Shape Layer instead of the way you're doing it.
You will see an option for line caps and line joins. They can be round or square:
To reveal the logo, put your original logo on the layer beneath the Shape Layer, then set the Track Matte on the original logo to Alpha Matte. It will use the alpha of the layer ...
Text animators are an essential part of working with text in AE, I suggest you read up on them, which you can do here. Text animators give you lots of tools for doing the kind of effects you want, but they're slightly unintuitive. However for the beginner there are dozens of presets included.
As far as the boxes go, it's a fairly simple animating task, that ...
This is a very simple effect that can be achieved using the Radial Wipe effect (which can be found in the Effects panel Video Effects > Transition > Radial Wipe)
Using the 'Transition Completion' set one keyframe at the start at 100% and the second keyframe for the end of the clip at 0%. To match the effect in the example you have shown, change the wipe to ...
Video is a sampled, quantized series of pixels in an array - so I don't think they are directly comparable - it is inherently a series of bitmap images played sequentially.
The nearest equivalent to what you're asking about is SVG animation, where you are rendering a series of pixels in a web browser based on some instructions telling the computer how to ...
You can easily copy and paste keyframes in AfterEffects:
In any non-empty composition, select a property of any layer (e.g. position), and click the stop watch to create a keyframe at the current time.
Move the cursor/indicator to another time. Click the keyframe icon left next to the stop watch to add another keyframe.
Create as many keyframes as you like.
I believe You want to delete some objects from Your scene.
Adobe After Effects recently introduced a feature allowing users to do just that:
If You meant anything else please clarify Your question a little bit more.
Try folowing steps:
Disable anti-aliasing in After Effects
Find some fonts with embedded bitmaps (like Tahoma) which looks good after it
Output can be almost in every format with no quality loss (for small animations you can even use unsompressed AVI), then you can join all it in ImageMagick, it can optimize your palette.
Don't use/try to avoid any shadows,...
