Project Description

Welcome to the Class Project for After Effects CC For Beginners: How To Use Adobe After Effects CC - Intro to Intermediate!

Your Class Project is to create your first motion graphic title!

Step 1. Create a new HD or 4k AE project as shown in the class

Step 2. Create a new solid layer with the color of your choice to create a background

Step 3. Add large text in the middle of the scene for the title of your favorite movie.

Step 4. Pre-compose the background solid layer and the text layer

Step 5. Add keyframes at the start and end, and then zoom in on the 2nd set of frames

Step 6. Export your project, upload and share it with us!

Your uploaded class project should include a title on screen with the font of your choice and a background with the color of your choice, that slowly zooms in throughout the video to add a bit of animation and movement.
