Class 1 - Introduction to Adobe After Effects and 2D Animation
During this first class, you will learn the general user interface of Adobe After Effects, as well as basic layer properties and transform controls. You will learn how to set up a new project, create fill layers (also known as "solids") and modify them. You will also be introduced to the concept of 2D animation and learn how to create keyframes.
Class 2 - Mastering Animation Techniques
Now that you are familiar with basic animation controls, it is time to learn different animation methods. During this class, you will learn concepts such as easing, anticipation, graph editor, and temporal / spatial interpolation, which will help you finesse your animations.
Class 3 - Typography and Text Animation
Text animation is one of the most powerful features of After Effects. In this session, you will learn how to create, edit and animate text layers, as well as using various "animators" and "range selectors" to gain full control over text animation.
Class 4 - Working with Effects and Audio
After learning various animation techniques, you will learn how to work with effects and audio. You will apply various types of effects to still images, graphics and video clips as well as animating these effects. You will also learn how to import and work with audio clips.
Class 5 - Masks and Adjustment Layers
During this class, you will learn the concept o masking in After Effects. As well as working with shape and pen tools to create/modify masks, you will learn how to apply these to adjustment layers to make localised edits.
Class 6 - Parenting, Pre-Composing, Rendering
The final class of this course will focus on creating links between layers, and grouping multiple layers together, also known as "pre-composing".
