About This Class

0b2294d4

Through this jam packed course I'm going to teach you not only how to create a stop-motion animation look inside After Effects, but also a completely photo-real felt material effect. Through the lessons we'll be covering things like:

  • Making an animation look like stop motion
  • Giving depth to your graphics to add realism
  • Applying textures to your graphics efficiently
  • Using expressions to create global controls for your scenes

And much, much more! As always, I'll be showing you how I use keyboard shortcuts constantly for a more efficient workflow. And you'll pick up all sorts of workflow tips and tricks along the way.

By the end of this class you'll be making authentic looking stop motion animations right in After Effects, and have a sweet project to show off to the world. I'll see you in class!

Amazing, Learn a ton from the class.
Fantastic class. I'm fairly experienced with After Effects and traditional stop motion animation and I learnt heaps! Great to know how to mimic the stop motion look. Thanks Jake!
Amazing! And such a patient teacher!
