Harness the power of video, GreenSock, and animated GIFs
Learn After Effects to animate content for video and web
This certificate program is comprised of three courses: HTML5 Animation with GreenSock, Photoshop Animated GIFs, and After Effects CC Level 1.
GSAP is an amazing class. I was really impressed how powerful is GSAP when building HTML5 banners for mobile devices.
Even if you know the basics of creating a GIF in Photoshop, this class is worth checking out for the time-saving tips and creative ways to enhance a GIF within Photoshop's boundaries.

The Photoshop Animated GIFs class was very thorough and fun. It is good to see animated GIFs are making a comeback in so many creative ways. Noble Desktop is super as always. Great value and well thought out lessons.
This is a great intensive course to get you started with After Effects. I highly recommend it to anyone who is serious about learning this. I would definitely take more classes at Noble Desktop.

After taking the After Effects class at Noble Desktop, I was able to create an animation immediately following completion of the course material - now I have the tools to continue using After Effects in my personal projects and beyond.
As one of our smaller courses, tuition for this course is due in full before the start date.
There are no extra fees or taxes for our courses. The price you see on this page is the maximum you’ll pay us.
However, if you plan to take the course live online, you may need to obtain required software. We’ll help you get set up with a free trial of paid software prior to the class. Most of our coding classes utilize freely-available open-source software. For most of our design and motion graphics courses, we will help you get set up with a free trial of Adobe Creative Cloud. If you attend the course in-person, we will have a computer already set up for you with all of the required software for no additional cost.
This program is a discounted package of classes that is 15–25% off the individual class prices.
