: These tutorials are really hard to follow, basically on the first 5 minutes it was ''here i have a bunch of custom folders with files on photoshop'' and went straight into importing them to after effects without showing what these folders have inside or sending an assets file download link so that we can import them or similar ones as well, the only thing i could obtain from there was Fiddlesticks splash art. I suggest to those who want to look into this tutorial without having any premade assets to look up on some youtube tutorials first which will show you how to do some previous steps like cropping the characters etc before going into it.
This is a good tip for those who don't have layered art available, or don't know how to mask and separate things in photoshop! I didn't cover the photoshop portion for creating the parts of the character, as I wanted to keep things pretty short. And as you said there are other tutorials around to cover the "before" steps. Here is one from RefractArt (Who we have worked with a few times on mograph stuff!). I'll actually link this in the vimeo page. Hope this helps, and thanks for the feedback! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_VsvouO6Yo

: Does this mean we will be able to use the logins of old again soon? I loved the Quinn login, not to mention the music in that one. :) I also used the Dragon Trainer Tristana login for the longest time. And of course this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xmNRDTBUBL0 Doing custom screen/music logins was also fun, back when it was possible to do so. Rek'Sai - [Zerg 2](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dh3og5wKB1c) Nami - [Enya: Caribbean Blue](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5yRgiXh2fP4) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQI1dj4TQZM
Sorry, no custom login feature I'm afraid...I just wanted to share the animation process. I agree the custom screens were fun though, haha! PS: I animated that Trist screen, it was one of my favorites to work on! Glad you enjoyed it :D
: Super cool to see the process. Which is more difficult, having a forefront image/character move "a lot" within a loop parameter, or having the background follow the "respiration" of the loop?
I think it really depends from scene to scene. After animating a normal breath loop a million times now, that part can be pretty easy on more ordinary characters, while the background or FX might be more challenging. A good example was Swain; he's a much more steady, reserved character, but his background was a whole army carrying banners and whatnot as far as they eye can see, so that part was much harder than the character animation! On the flipside, Irelia's screen is an example of lots of character related motion, and not too much happening in the background. Hope that answers the question!
: What?! This is so cool!!! Thanks for sharing and I’d love to see more! :)
Thanks! I'll try to record another when I get some time :D

: Riot please tell me Zoe is getting a login theme...
Sorry, I was down to the wire finishing animation on this one my dude! And the full 1080p version is coming soon :)

: Riot, what about an option that allows you to choose your own favorite login screen and keep it?
Hi, I'm a pretty frequent animator of these screens.. I think that would be a cool feature too, but I also don't know if it's something we'll end up making; The next best thing for now is the [League Screensaver app](http://screensaver.na.leagueoflegends.com/en_US), which has all of our animated login art ready to view! And we also have the official [youtube playlist](https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLbAFXJC0J5GZHUtGea_zQR0OyD3UBuw9s) if you feel like taking a trip down memory lane, music included. You may already know about those, but just wanted to make sure in case you missed them. We're glad you've enjoyed our past logins enough to be requesting this in the first place, so thank you!

Tim Weiser and Adam Oliviera are the ones who animated Elementalist Lux's login screen :) Awesome, I figured there was a change there since I havent seen much new things from Anthony on his youtube and other art pages, but I only knew him from the references and not anyone knew so thank you for the info. If I may ask, what other login animations Tim Weiser and Adam Oliviera have done in the rescent past?
No problem :) Those guys have been working with the whole Personalization team to bring you the skins login screens this whole year; So they worked on screens like Project Ashe, Ahri, Star Gaurdians, etc, among other things.
: One of the main Graphics Motion Designer (aka Login animator) is [Anthony 'PastaBomb' Possobon](http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Anthony_%27PastaBomb%27_Possobon). In terms of the specific art of the login screens, you can find some of the artists referenced on the wiki, just scroll down on the linked page I posted here and you will find 50 or so artist for various artistic sectors for the game (concept art, splash art, promo art)
Hi Tesla! I'm a motion graphics/login animator for champion+champup teams. Anthony is definitely the OG login screen animator man, but he has been up to other things for a while. Tim Weiser and Adam Oliviera are the ones who animated Elementalist Lux's login screen :)
: Hey! myself and AdamKadamon (the sexy one) were the artists who did animation on this thing. And HugeHugeSword (https://www.artstation.com/artist/sukeart) did the art for it. LilPeanutBrotha is our brother from another mother, doing login screens on the champion side. He is responsible for the dopeness that is Tahm Kench, Assassins, Ivern, Kled, and many others. @OP Thank you very much for your kind words. This sort of feedback keeps us hungry to create awesome stuff for you guys.

: Definitely will. ^^ I won't be swamped with work like I was today, that's for sure!
{{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}
: I had a rough day today...
We are so glad we can brighten your day... hope you have another good one tomorrow!
: I Miss The SG Log In Already
There is always the [youtube version](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6kEZEvMYKQY&index=1&list=PLbAFXJC0J5GZHUtGea_zQR0OyD3UBuw9s) in all of its full, login window-less glory to tide you over!

: Was the Star Guardian Login made by a different team? The art style is noticeably different then the one you've been sticking to for the past few years.
Not really, the login was made by the team that usually handles the skins. I think the styling difference you mentioned was made to keep it feeling close to "Burning Bright" and the anime inspirations!

: Log in screen
I won't vote (due to clear potential bias, hehe), but I gotta say I love the screen too! I actually animate login screens, but mostly for new champions+updates now... so it's always great seeing such an epic login screen from a skin event like this landing in my client all of a sudden! I couldn't login for about a song loop and a half...too good....{{summoner:3}} We are glad you like it though! I'll pass on your praise :) PS: First time posting with red name finally, hope I am doing this right XD
: Animating Splash Art
Hi, I'm one of the animators for these splashes! The video Dwarven posted is a great example really; We mainly use Adobe After Effects to create tons of controllers and rigs to bring the character to life, and then add plenty of effects and animate everything else in the scene as well. That's really it in a nutshell (there are lots of special cases and things to consider while making one though!) Anything else you are wondering about? Thanks!
: New Login Animation
As one of the login animators who worked on a lot of TF/Graves and some of Gangplank's return), thanks! We are glad you liked it! (Sorry this is crazy late, but I'm just now trying to be better about posting here!) {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}
: Login Music
Hi Banana Knight! You can find much of our music on the soundcloud page, available for free download: https://soundcloud.com/leagueoflegends/sets If you have spotify, a lot of tracks are on there as well. Search League of Legends and it should come up. Hope you find what you're looking for, thanks!
: Why is Hecarim not in the Arcade login screen?
< 7 months late XD > Hello, I'm a Rioter who was one of the animators for this screen! We decided to leave out Hecarim and Veigar due to both space (didn't want to cram his eyes into a point that would be largely covered anyways), and time (we had to do this fast considering everything going on!). We decided to focus on the new skins and focal area the most. Also, Hecarim going sideways might feel strange when we consider how the background moves forward so fast, as zzman mentioned! Let me know if you have any more questions about this! Sorry for the lateness, but I figured I should try to be more active on the boards recently, so here I am making up for lost time :) Thank you!
