So I'm considering diving in the world of Animation and Motion Graphic Design..

I take it that Motion graphic design, from what I understand, is to Animation as UI is to frontend development. It's the designing that takes "effect" before the animating is done, just as a web designer would design the site and the frontend developer, sometimes they are one in the same, would bring it to life. I've taken the Sketch course on Team Treehouse and really enjoyed it; I was wondering if Sketch would do everything I would need Adobe Illustrator to do if I wanted to work with Adobe After Effects if Adobe After effects is indeed the "best" fit or not for Web Animation, to play along with Sketch. My current concentration as been primarily on Angular, Sass, and UI design. How well and valuable would SVG, Sketch and Adobe after effects, once again if I don't find something that would work with sketch better, play with those already obtained skills as an entry level frontend developer.


P.S. I look forward to what you guys have to say!
