There are many challenges when creating motion graphics animations. Information graphics are especially tough. Because information graphics or infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge intended to present information quickly and clearly. Visually clean in design and yet must deliver accurate message to the audience in a very short time. These are the kind of graphics that the crew at Wall Street Journal (Hong Kong) need to create for their daily news video online. They have chosen After Effects CC 2014 as the tool for this task.
