Adobe After Effects CC 2017: Essential Motion Graphics Training

Have you tried to learn Motion Graphics in After Effects and ended up with an Adobe After Effects Course that teaches all of Adobe After Effects and little to nothing of useful Motion Graphics Techniques?

Do you want to use After Effects only to create Motion Graphics? To create these awesome motion graphics videos, you see on the net?

Learning After Effects does not guarantee you acquiring Motion Graphics Skills. You have to head out again and find many other courses to learn the ins and outs of Graphics, then of Motion, and again more courses on how to put Graphics and Motion Together.

In this course, I have gathered tons of experience in Motion Graphics and Adobe After Effects techniques. You will focus on Motion Graphics while Learning all about After Effects methods, techniques tips and tricks to create awesome animations.

Shifting the Focus: Mastering Motion Graphics in Adobe After Effects

Learning Motion Graphics using Adobe After Effects is a totally different Experience from Learning Adobe After Effects. You Will:

  • Dive in immediately and start creating animations
  • Learn the most powerful structured technique to create a full Animation Project
  • Start learning Motion Graphics techniques and how to create them in After Effects
  • Learn and Practice the essential skills required to properly Create Motion Graphics in After Effects

Some of Practical Projects Covered in This Course:

  • The Phone Animation: A practical and useful project to ignite your Motion Graphics skills
  • The Walking Character: An Introduction to compounding shapes and creating a simple walking cycle
  • Angry Birds: A project that will lead to learn all about space and time and how to put them together to create energetic animation
  • And many other projects that will teach you the ins and outs of Motion Techniques.

Most importantly throughout the course the essence of Motion Graphics and how to put together a Motion Graphics Project is thoroughly covered.  

Your most important experience in this course is learning how to embrace the spirit of your individuality when creating Motion Graphics coupled with how to Imagine, Create and Execute Motion Graphics while learning all the tools in Adobe After Effects for you to become a Master Motion Graphics Artist.

See you in the course.

Video Editing- After Effects- Motion Graphics-Visual Effects

The Highest Rated After Effects Complete Course on Udemy.

Animation, Motion Graphics and Visual Effects is what I love creating and teaching, Offline and Online.

After Effects is what I love working with, every day, (except Sundays, my wife and kids won’t let me).

I learned these the very hard way, very long time ago (since 1983) and I am still on it. It’s amazing when you discover that I used to use assembly language to animate sprites (think of PacMan), Green and B/W screens. Today I am animating Videos, 3D in a click.

The Path to Mastery starts now. Being in the advertising industry has taught me that precision and a significant attention to details is very important, and makes the difference between a fake and life like animation.

What You Will Learn from me:

After Effects: The whole lot. In my course After Effects 2016 packed with all Techniques and Methods (No Tricks and gimmicks).

You can also dig deeper in the Mastery series, such as in 3D Mastery and 2D Character Animation courses.

In some of my courses, you can also learn more commercial aspect of After Effects such slides, transitions and lower third templates. Very useful if you want to focus on what you want to achieve.  

Focus and Mastery are important elements for true skills creation.  

If you want to Really Learn About After Effects, then I will be more than happy to offer you all my skills, experience, and expertise.

I guess 40,000 Students in the last 8 months is a good sign that my courses will be of benefit to you.
