Shape Layers were introduced in Adobe After Effects CS3 & are a great additional tool to be able to create things like additional assets, animating items, backgrounds, buttons, all kinds of different bits and pieces & they are very easy to animate & you can do some very powerful things with them.
Through out this Adobe After Effects shape layers course, we are going to cover the following:
At the end of this course, you'd be able to:
- Have a strong foundation to start your own style in creating amazing shape layers animations with Adobe After Effects
- Enhance your video intros and create better and enriched motion graphics - Download all the Projects' After Effects Source Files

In this lecture, I'm going to show you the difference between masks created on a layer and shape layers then show you how to create multiple shapes on a single layer and how to change their appearance and animate them independently to each other even though they are still on the same layer.
Just a quick note about Udemy Review Process.
In this lecture, I'll go a little more in depth at some of the fill and stroke options for shapes layers, in particular at how to create custom gradients. Also, we'll look at the standard animation properties that come with shape layers helping us to create and animate complex and organic shapes very quickly.
In this lecture, I'll show you how to use both the Text tool and the Pen tool to create shapes in After Effects.
For the Text tool, I'll show you how to group shapes so that although still all being able to be animated individually, they can also be animated together as a group.
For the Pen tool I'll show you how to use RotoBezier and how to create Bezier handles with each point created for better custom shape creation as well as how to break those handles when needed.
In this lecture, we'll start looking at the operands or FX that can be applied to shape layers in After Effects. First one is the Merge Paths function.
In this lecture, we'll be looking at the Offset Paths which is the second operand that can be applied to shape layers in After Effects.
In this lecture, we'll be looking at the Pucker & Bloat which is the third operand that can be applied to shape layers in After Effects.
In this lecture, we'll be looking at the Repeater which is the fourth operand and one of the most powerful and widely used operands in animating shape layers in After Effects.
In this lecture, we'll be looking at Round Corners which is the fifth operand that can be applied to shape layers in After Effects.
In this lecture, we'll be looking at the Trim Paths which is the sixth operand which also an important and very powerful operand that can be applied to shape layers in After Effects.
In this lecture, we'll be looking at two operands that can be applied to shape layers in After Effects, one that is very simple which is Twist and the other one is a little bit complex which is Wiggle Paths
In this lecture, we'll be looking at ninth operand that can be applied to shape layers in After Effects which is Wiggle Transform and I'll show you how it differs from the Wiggle Paths operand.
In this lecture, we'll be looking at the last operand that can be applied to shape layers in After Effects which is ZigZag.
Practice the first section.

In this lecture, I'll show you how to create some nice colorful and simple circular transitions by applying trim paths operand and animating shape layers in After Effects.
In this lecture, I'll show you how to create wiggling text and shapes coming in by using trim paths operand in conjunction with the wiggle paths in After Effects.
In this lecture, I'll show you how to create some nice radial transitions, by applying the repeater operand on shape layers in After Effects.
In this lecture, I'll show you how to create circles and dotted circles bursts in a very simple and easy way in After Effects.
In this lecture, you'll learn how to animate shape layers to create stripes transition in Adobe After Effects .
In this lecture, I'll show you how to save your animated shape layers as presets so you can use in other projects right away instead of doing it from scratch every single time.
