After Effects Complete Course – Motion Graphics for Beginners | Video School Online Course

Interested in learning Adobe After Effects? Video School Online recently posted a new course that will teach you everything you need to know to get started with Motion Graphics. After Effects is a very robust program. It will take years to truly master it, and you will always be learning something new. Everyone has to start somewhere. I started in college, taking an Advanced Special Effects course that introduced me to After Effects. Since then, I’ve worked as a professional video editor in Los Angeles. Many of my jobs have included using After Effects for title sequences, special effects, and other purposes such as stabilization.

Enroll in the full course for just $25

Whether you are using a PC or a Mac, this course is perfect for you. All you need is a version of After Effects. I use CS5.5 to teach the course. The basics are the same across most versions. You can even download the free trial version of AE. I teach you how, inside the course.

This course contains over 7 hours of footage. The footage is broken down into topics and skills. Each topic’s video is under 10 minute, to make the course easy to watch.

Here is a glimpse of what we’ll be looking at:

  • After Effects program layout + basics
  • Adding layers and working with transform tools
  • Creating unique shapes with motion
  • Masks and mask animations
  • 3d layers and animations
  • 3D cameras and camera animations
  • Working with Photoshop & After Effects
  • Video FX such as: page turns, fractal noise, color correction
  • Transitions such as: linear & radial wipes
  • Exporting with transparency
  • Exporting for YouTube
  • Green Screen editing in After Effects
  • Getting a Job with After Effects
  • and so much more!
