About our After Effects course



The purpose of this course is to get you familiar with After Effects in a very short space of time. You can think about After Effects as being a kind of Photoshop for moving images. You will need to understand how to work in layers, how to apply luma and chroma keys, mask out areas, apply text, animate sections, apply colour correction using Lumetri, how incorporate 3D images and how to export using appropriate codecs. There is a lot to learn. But 5 days will cover all the essential ground-work.
