Launching Adobe After Effects can be scary! But it doesn’t have to be. In this course, I walk you through the most vital sections, tools, plugins and techniques in After Effects to help you create awesome visual effects, motion graphics and more. The course starts at the beginning, creating a new project and composition, we then explore the user interface, import video footage, create shapes and solids then animate those layers using keyframe animation. After that we group multiple layers together and animate them at the same time with objects and parenting. Motion blur, masking, text and generating a lower third come next. We then take that text and convert it to 3D text and explore 3D lights and virtual cameras before jumping into motion tracking with the 2D motion tracker and 3D camera tracker. We touch base with some effects in the effect and presets panel and learn how to adjust certain effects in After Effects. We’re then removing backgrounds with green screen editing and rotoscoping. The puppet pin tool comes next, then colouring, animating with expressions and lastly, most importantly, how to export from After Effects. So sit back, grab a coffee and let’s jump into Adobe After Effects and make this intimidating piece of software more manageable.
