Adobe After Effects CC Level 2

Advanced After Effects Training in NYC

Adobe After Effects is a powerful tool for motion graphics, character animation and visual effects.

Learn Advanced After Effects Techniques

In this intermediate/advanced After Effects course, we’ll master text animations and create transitions between multiple layouts. Through several hands-on real-world projects integrating graphic elements with audio, video and photo elements, we'll master motion graphics workflow: the process motion graphics animators take, to create projects from design to final delivery.

In addition, we'll cover scripts to speed up your animation process, creating looping animations, working with mattes and masks, effective greenscreen removal, digital cell-phone screen replacement, rotoscoping live-action, morphing shape layers, integrating hand-drawn elements, JavaScript to automate animations in After Effects, animating UI's, working in After Effects 3D space, and much more.
