Basic HUD circles in After Effects

I’ll be showing how to make simple HUD (heads-up display) circles (aka futuristic circle things) in After Effects (and without using keyframes) like these:

This tutorial is designed for people with little experience with After Effects, so theres a lot of extra explanations

- So… Are you okay?
- You don’t need to worry. If I couldn’t play, the coach would’ve stopped me.
- I see. Then I can go all out.
- What?
- That’s good.
- “You weren’t worried about me? Seriously?” Sounds like I don’t have to worry about you!
- I feel relieved, as well.
- Keep talking! First pitch! Stay focused!

You can do it!!! I started exercising nearly five weeks ago too. It was hell at first but afterwards I felt so accomplished! If you want to keep motivated a trick is to do a Fitness test (I do one every two weeks myself) and it really makes you feel good to see that you can do more repetitions than before :)

Thanks for the encouragement. Mainly I just want to be able to complete a sit up again and not stagger under the weight of my dog when I pick him up. A lot of jobs require I be able to lift heavy pounds (20+), so I want to be able to do that without issue. Plus it just feels better once all the weight is off. I know I’ll be happier in the long run and my body will thank me later on when I’m too old to be doing a lot of these exercises.

So yeah. Preventive maintenance and all that such. Much as I hate the idea of squats, if they’ll make it so I can walk two or three miles without dying, I’ll do them.

more people love you and forgive you than you think.

Calling Booklr

I need help finding a book.
This was something that I read in primary school and absolutely loved it, the only problem is that I can’t remember the title, the author, or the general story. (yeah, I know but hear me out)
Here are the things I do recall:
• it’s about a young girl
• she lives in an impoverished part of the world
• at some point she gets sold/kidnapped/simply moved to a different - bigger place
• the book starts with the girl walking a long distance to a bus stop barefoot (I think to go to school)
• the cover was a light blue

I know that isn’t a lot to go off, but any leads would be wonderful, I’ve been searching for this book for an extremely long time and I’d really love to find it again.
If you think you know anything about it? Please message me?
