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 create some Sexy Titles!

We'll discuss how to set up a composition, create a title using the text tool and character settings, animate using shape layers and the scale property, mirror layers, adjust keyframes,track mattes,  and create a stroke and background for your text.  Lastly, we'll cover how to polish the look by color correcting and creating a vignette.

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