About This Class

In this awesome, 5 PART COURSE we'll cover a wide variety of techniques for creating and animating some really cool graphics inside of After Effects. 

You'll learn how to create and design your graphics using only After Effects' built-in tools, how to animate your graphics using basic keyframes and simple expressions, and lastly how to get a solid green screen color key, motion track live-action footage, and composite your animated graphics over top for a final look. In PART 1, you will learn how to create a rectangular graphic using shape layers, text, stroke effects, and track mattes.

Look ahead for PART 2 where you'll learn how to create a super clean circular graphic using some basic and easy-to-follow techniques.

After this course, you'll have what you need to advance further in the software and tackle your first projects!

I found the instructor easy to follow and understand. Additionally, he explains the reasoning behind the structure of his comps, which helps with breaking down the design process. No Diggity
