About This Class

693aa14a

If you're as fond of the 80s as I am, than you're gonna love this class! Learn how to make any animation, video or still photo look like it came straight out of a beat up camcorder, and reuse the effect on absolutely any project! 

I'll teach you how to take advantage of using many different adjustment layers stacked on top of each other, advanced blending mode techniques, and unleash the power of precomps. We'll walk through how to use lots of different effects in ways you may not have before, and build completely customizable visual distortions.

I'll see you in class!

I learned so much from this one!
Great!

I like design

Really well done, I usually am apprehensive in completing ae tuts because the instructor glosses over things without much explanation. I felt like this was easy to follow especially in the first portion, near the end the instructor sped up which seems like a good option when those who are watching are getting the hang of things, however, it was a bit fast and I found myself pausing the video quite often. then again I am in my 30s and losing sharpness so that could be a factor;) Overall really great tut and I learned a lot, thank you!
