Intro to After Effects

Free Seminar

Adobe After Effects is a powerful tool for motion graphics and visual effects. It can be used on its own to create stand-alone videos and animations or integrated into video editing programs like Premiere Pro. 

In this free class, you’ll get a healthy taste of the power of After Effects as an animation and effects tool. We’ll be creating a motion graphics animation using photos and video and then use the tracking and compositing features of the program to recreate an effect from a well-known Hollywood movie.

This is the perfect way to get started learning the app before you dive into one of our hands-on After Effects courses, including the Motion Graphics Certificate, After Effects Level 1, or Premiere Pro Bootcamp
