I actually had a free minute this past week so I was able to spend it trying to find some inspiration and create some new elements. I was browsing youTube and found the motion designer Ben Marriot. If you are unfamiliar with him, he is definitely worth following on youTube and Instagram. His videos seem to be targeting a user that is a little newer to animation and motion graphics but I’ve found quite a few useful bits and I really like his design style.
Seeing his work inspired me to make some paper textures to add a little bit of extra appeal to animation and motion graphics projects.
I shot these raw and converted them to 16-bit tiffs to maintain the best compatibility and image quality.
The animated textures are provided as ProRes 4444 at 23.975 fps. First thing I would do if you decide to make use of these is slow them down to 50% or even 25%.
Download a pack of animated and still paper textures. A few examples of what the pack includes are below.
Use these textures in any way you see fit for either personal, academic or commercial projects. Credit is not required but it’s always nice! If you are going to give credit please do so like this:
