About This Class

After Effects is an amazing program that can help you create motion graphics, visual effects, and titles that make your videos better, but it can be intimidating to try out. In this 45-minute course, you’ll learn how to beautifully introduce objects in your After Effects projects. Knowing how to animate the small details of your objects will dramatically improve your After Effects skills. Follow me as I animate the build-up of a polaroid camera graphic.


This class is perfect for video creators, designers, and everyone who wants to learn After Effects in an unintimidating way. If you’re just starting out, we recommend taking the Dive into After Effects: Understanding the Basics & Working with Keyframes courses first. By the end of this class, you’ll know how to seamlessly animate object buildups for your own video projects.

I found this class very easy to follow. The tips Phil noted throughout the videos were precise and helpful. I really felt Phil found the balance between teaching the fundamentals and adding a few intermediate tricks. I would most definitely recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn/refresh the Illustrator and After Effect skills needed to build these animations.

Very simple and entertaining class.
Great class!! Helped me more than my tutors at University! The video I've made isn't great but still it's an improvement. Will try again soon :)
