About This Class


As motion designers, we often have to animate coins and bills in our projects.
Achieving the right look while maintaining the needed amount of control can be quite challenging... 

Welcome to The Ultimate Guide To Handling Money in After Effects! 

In this class, you will learn how to prepare different kinds of coins and bills/papers which you can save for later use. We are going to use expressions, effects, and wizardry to achieve a variety of styles! 

In each video lesson, we will cover a different technique for creating and rigging a coin or a bill, discuss the best use cases as well as the limitation of each technique.  

By the end of this class, you will have a full tool kit for handling coins and bills in your next project. You will be able to use them for a verity of motion graphics uses such as transitions, background elements and more. Along the way, you will learn different expressions and how to use them to simplify your workflow in After Effects. 

See you in class!
