After Effects CC 2018 MasterClass

Learn how to create beautiful Motion Graphics and Visual Effects

A little more information

After Effects is the software professionals use to create amazing, sometimes dazzling motion graphics. It's used in a vast number of industries, including TV, web and film.

In this course, we will learn how the foundations of this versatile application work. We will start from scratch, with a blank project and start building our own animations. We will also cover the close integration between After Effects and  Illustrator

With this hands-on training course, you will learn all the tips and tricks that the professional designers use to create eye-catching motion graphics. 

You will master keyframes and become an expert in using the dreaded graph editor. You will also learn how to use After Effects to create 3D compositions. 

This masterclass is designed for complete beginners, but even if you are a seasoned After Effects user, we promise you will learn countless tricks that you wish you knew before! You will learn about speeding up your workflow, fixing shaky footage, effects and text animation. 

After Effects offers a number of built-in presets when it comes to animating. As well as exploring these presets, we will be learning how to create our own custom presets and animations. 

You will also learn how motion tracking works by attaching a piece of graphic or text to a live action video and mask it to make it believable. 

If you are ready to step into the world of animated graphics and visual effects, then let's get started.
