Adobe After Effects is a powerful tool for animation and video post-production. It can be used to create stand-alone videos, animations, special effects, animated titles, and much more. Use it to create compelling video content for social media, web, or even broadcast TV.
In this advanced After Effects course, you’ll master text and shape animations and learn how to create transitions between different compositions, learn motion and camera tracking, chroma keying to remove a greenscreen and much more. Through several hands-on real-world projects integrating graphic elements with audio, video and photo elements, we'll master the motion graphics and compositing workflows: the process motion graphics animators and compositors take, to create projects from conception to final delivery.
This After Effects training covers the basics of the user interface, the timeline, video, layer animation, easing in and out, fade-ins, and more. This one-day After Effects course will give you a strong working knowledge of After Effects’ capabilities for creating GIFs, animating logos, and importing layered files from Illustrator and Photoshop.
Basic working knowledge of Adobe Photoshop is recommended. If you have never used Photoshop, consider taking our Photoshop Bootcamp class. Basic knowledge of video timeline editing and basic design skills are helpful, but not required.
