Advanced Adobe After Effects Hands-On Class

What You'll Learn

Mastering the Tools

Take your After Effects skills to the next level with this intermediate, hands-on workshop. This all-day class will build on top of the skills and tools learned in the previous After Effects Hands-On class. We'll look at advanced techniques and cover more tools used by professional motion graphics and effects artists.

Class Agenda:

  • Part 1 - Advanced animation techniques. Using the easy ease and graph editor to customize our animations.
  • Part 2 - Intro to Expressions. Animating without keyframes.
  • Part 3 - Particles and noise. Create organic types of noise and particles to simulate things like fire, smoke, rain or snow.
  • Part 4 - Puppet Tool. Create and animate objects or characters.
  • Part 5 - Roto Brush. Use this tool to quickly cut objects out of a scene.
  • Part 6 - Intermediate 3D. Using simple expressions to lock our cameras to targets and create random movement.

Though presented in Adobe Creative Cloud, most of what is taught will apply to earlier versions of the program.

Computer Requirement

This is a hands-on class where you'll "learn by doing". Therefore you'll need a computer. If you need any particular software installed, that will be detailed below. Not all programs require special software so if there isn't any detailed listed below you will only need a computer with a up-to-date web browser. We always recommend that if you have one, that you bring your own computer if at all possible. However, if you need one, we have several Apple iMac workstations with all the necessary software that are available by reservation for only $20 per day. You can reserve a computer rental using this form but you must complete your registration first. In most cases, the class will be taught with the Macintosh version of the software but generally the only difference between the Mac and Windows version is the keyboard shortcuts, using the Command key on Mac and the Control key on Windows.

If you would like to take your class work and sample projects home, please be sure to bring a Mac compatible portable drive with 4GB of free space.

Adobe Creative Cloud

This class will be presented from the latest version of the Adobe Creative Cloud. If you are using your own computer for the class, it is important that you have the latest version installed! Adobe offers a free 7-day trial of the Creative Cloud.

Prerequisites:

To attend this course, students must have an understanding of Adobe After Effects. If you don't, we require you to take our Adobe After Effects Hands-On Class before registering for this advanced class.

Who Should Take This

Any video editor or videographer looking to enter into the world of visual effects for video. Having prior experience with a non-linear editing program will be helpful but not absolutely necessary. You NEED to have experience with After Effects, but you do NOT NEED experience with an editing app like Premiere (but it would be helpful).
