About This Class

In this beginner course we'll cover some of the basic tools and tips you'll use over and over again as you progress in the software, all while learning how to design and animate a clean and simple Lower Thirds Title.

We'll discuss how to set up a composition, and design a Lower Third using Shape Layers, Gradient Ramps, and After Effect's other built in tools.  Next, I will teach you how to create a simple animation using basic keyframes.

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