About This Class

Join the Designer/ Illustrator and Animator Neda Hajmomeni for a 35 min class and learn how to use After effects in small and easy steps to animate a rainbow. 

In this class we are going to explore how to animate a rainbow in After effects. Basic knowledge in After effects is useful but not required. 

You will learn how to create the rings of the rainbow, colour and keyframe each layer, how to render your final animation in Mov file and how to convert your video to a looping Gif in photoshop. You will also learn different ways of looping your animation directly in After effects. 

At the end of this class students should be able to animate a colourful rainbow in After effects.
