About This Class

In this class we will dive into After Effects and create a countdown. This lesson requires no plug-ins, everything you need will be built right into the bones of After Effects. I am excited because the simplicity of  this project will lend itself to be a building block for many more complex countdowns. 

What you will learn:

- How to make Pre Compositions

- Utilize the "Number" effect

- How to create a countdown

- Simple 3D movement with camera

This class is straight to the point, you will get in and learn exactly what you need to. Thank you for participating and watching. I can't wait to see what you create. Don't forget to upload your project.

Adam is so helpful and oriented to making sure things are explained very simple. The pace at which he goes, makes it to where you don't even have to stop and rewind. You're not going to find an easier CD tutorial than this, trust me.
