Thank you to MotionMile for offering up this amazing Galaxy animation tutorial! This technique is great for all skill types, beginner and advanced!
From the instructor:
This After Effects Tutorial teaches you how to create an impressive Galaxy Intro scene that's ideal for huge, futuristic space related projects. First you'll start by creating a spinning vortex animation that can be used in a huge range of scenes. This animated spinning vortex requires no plugins to create and simply changing the colors or scale will give you a completely new design in seconds each time! We'll also show you how to create a range of galaxy like particles that animate and add depth to the scene. These galaxies do require the VideoCopilot Optical Flares plugin and once created, they're extremely easy to customize to your liking. Finally we'll add some titles to the tutorial that include a unique animation that appropriately fits the scene.
