Adobe After Effects is a powerful tool for animation and video post-production. It can be used to create stand-alone videos and animations but is often more powerful when used in conjunction with other programs such as Premiere to add special effects and titles to web and video content. This book will take you from the basics of After Effects such as understanding the workspace and basic animation techniques, all the way through to advanced animation techniques, motion tracking, and particle effects.

Our books are packed with step-by-step exercises that walk you through projects. You’ll learn by doing exercises, not reading long explanations commonly found in user manuals. The goal is to give you hands-on practice with the program, getting you started quickly with the things that are most important for real life work. Our books are not a replacement for the manual, but manuals aren’t how you learn an app!
