About This Class

tmESQ4q.gif

In this course I'm going to show you how to create a shadowbox-style paper cutout effect inside After Effects. In each quick video we'll cover things like:

  • Adding textures using track mattes
  • Customizing colors
  • Working with 3D cameras, layers, lights, and shadows
  • Precomposing layers
  • Parenting layers
  • Controlling expressions with sliders
  • Blending modes

And much, much more. As always, I'll be showing you how I use keyboard shortcuts constantly for a more efficient workflow.

LOVED it!
Thank you for your classes Jake. I'm learning a lot, and I'm really grateful.
This is a super quick and interesting tutorial that taught me everything I needed to know to make my own paper cutout animation.
