Spinning Logo

This is the current stinger I’m using on my Twitch/Mixer live stream. I modeled it on the 1960’s Batman TV show stinger, because why not? In the actual version in use, the background is replaced with a chroma green color so that the…

Unfolding Image

This was another attempt to replicate a video I saw on TV. The original was featured in a car commercial and only focused on a single fold-out panel at a time, while the camera moved along to focus on that panel. But…

Image Drop-In

This is a pretty common effect. So common that I think when I was done, I was reminded of intro videos of 1970’s variety shows. I have no explanation beyond that. I started this after the unfolding video because I wanted to see if there…

Sliding Tiles

When looking around the Internet for inspiration, I came across a small animation that you might see on a magazine website or even a commercial. It featured tiles sliding into the picture to reveal an image beneath, and when the tiles slid…

Flying Logos

The flying logos video is used as my outro video on my Twitch/Mixer channel. The gist is that I wanted to a video that represented my “variety streamer” status (i.e. I don’t broadcast just one game most of the time), so I…

Game Icon Morph

I got the idea for this animation when watching a video for the XSplit live streaming software. In this video which talked about recent updates, they featured an animation which had several different icons morphing around the screen. This version isn’t as…

Glass Pass

We have a TV in our office breakroom, and while getting coffee I was watching the news. In between the stories, they have a stinger which features a bunch of semi-transparent elements moving at different speeds over a stylistic background, while the…
