Description

If you’re interested in the world of motion design and are anxious to jump into After Effects with both feet, this is the class for you! The Beginner’s Guide to After Effects is a comprehensive course covering everything you need to know to start creating animations in Adobe After Effects. You’ll learn all about navigating and using the software as we cover topics like

  • Panels & Workspaces
  • Importing Artwork
  • Manipulating Layers
  • Resolution
  • Frame Rates
  • Timecode
  • Creating a Composition
  • Working with Precomps
  • Layer Transform Properties
  • Keyframe Animation
  • Timing vs Spacing
  • Working with Text
  • Combining Effects
  • Masking
  • Looping an Animation
  • Exporting a Video

And much, much more! Once you’ve completed this course you’ll be fully equipped to move on to any of my other After Effects courses and know that you’ll be able to follow along with ease.

You will learn

For the class project, you’ll be building a fun animation of an arcade game called Taco Tuesday. I’ll be building the same animation through the lessons, so all you have to do to complete the project is follow along with me. Pace yourself, take notes, and don’t be afraid to rewind or slow down the video playback speed if you’re struggling to keep up. Don’t hesitate to ask questions on the Community tab and I’ll be more than happy to help you work through any issues. And be sure you post your final animation to your class project once you’ve finished!
