Make ANYTHING Retro in After Effects

Thanks to Rive for sponsoring this video. Start designing and animating interactive graphics today.

In this video, I break down how to create this retro, analog, vintage style animation that mimics 80s VHS effects using only digital resources. Procreate, Callipeg, and Adobe After Effects are used in this tutorial.

This time I’m breaking down the process of this simple animation using Adobe After Effects. Don’t skip the video if you want to know exactly how I created this vintage look.
