About This Class


This class is made for the beginner motion designer who is looking to learn more about Adobe Photoshop and After Effects, and how to apply these skills in a professional setting.

In this class you will learn how to animate a still photograph.

We'll start in Photoshop where we will learn how to use the Pen tool to separate the photograph and create a layer mask.  Then we will paint the skater out using the Clone Stamp Tool and the Patch tool.

We'll bring these layers into After Effects and convert them to 3D layers and animate them using a camera.

Finally, we will animate some text using the text tool and 3D layers.

In addition, throughout the course I will be supplying my working projects so that you can use them as a downloadable resource.

At the end of this course, you'll be able to animate a still photograph using these techniques.
