About This Class

aa519eed

In this class I'll show you how to animate a snow globe in After Effects. You'll learn how to animate particles instead of animating each snowflake one by one, which saves a lot of time. I'll also show you how to animate everything inside your snow globe to the movement of it being picked up and set down. Once you're finished you'll have an animation ready to upload to Instagram.

This class is designed for artists who have some experience with Illustrator, but it's not required.

You'll learn how to animate in Adobe After Effects, how to use Particle Playground (a plugin in After Effects) and for your final animation you will create an animated video ready to add to Instagram.
