About This Class

The long awaited dynamic graph creation is here! After Effects now supports the linking of data exported from software such as Microsoft Excel, where the data exported to a JSON format can now be linked and displayed in infinite scenarios within Adobe After Effects CC 2018.

I this short course, I’ll go over how we can animate a graph within Adobe After Effects CC 2018, we’ll go over exporting a graph to JSON format so we can work with it, we’ll also write an expression within After Effects to accurately display data from our JSON file. 

Jump in, teach yourself the newest After Effects abilities so you stay on top of your animation game.
