This is a comprehensive course on creating Kinetic Typography and Motion Graphics using Adobe After Effects. At the end of this course, you will be able to create mind-blowing motion graphics and text animations using the software. Every minor skill that you should master to achieve this level of expertise, is taught through this course. It is economical and concise, and much better than other overpriced alternatives found online. It is not a hobby course like random videos on YouTube. You will learn how to create professional looking work and in fact earn a living doing this alone. We will discuss online avenues through which you can monetize your newly developed skill. Through the course, we will create 3 different animated videos, to cover the beginner, intermediate and expert stages of the course. You will be proud to have mastered such an amazing skill in such a short time. Do not hesitate. Just go for it. Take charge of your own future.
In this lecture, we introduce the Adobe After Effects software, its interface and the tools it offer.
After this lecture, you will be able to create multiple layers in after effects to animate them later.
After this lecture, you will be able to animate the position and scale of text layers over time.
After this lecture, you will be able to animate the rotation of text layers and create cool effects using this tool
After this tutorial, you will be able to use the amazing graph editor tool in After Effects to control the dynamics of your animation.
In this tutorial, you will learn the appropriate export settings to yield the best quality output at a considerable file size.
After this tutorial, you will be able to use the amazing masking tool in After Effects to create the effect of a text, appearing out of nowhere.
In this tutorial, we delve deeper into the masking tool in After Effects to create more interesting effects.
After this tutorial, you will be able to work with audio files in After Effects, and use markers to denote different beats and lines of lyrics in your audio.
In this tutorial, we create and animate a group of text layers in sync with an audio file
After this tutorial, you will be able to create and manipulate a virtual camera in After Effects, to navigate through the scene we have created.
After this lecture, you will be able to create and manipulate the more advanced and efficient Two Node Camera in Adobe After Effects. You will learn how to animate the virtual camera with respect to a 3D plane and manipulate tis position, zoom and point of Interest. This will really spice up your text animations.
In this video, we will look at what we're gonna do in this section, and then we're gonna go and do it :D
We start building the typography project that we just looked at in the previous lecture. We will begin with a simple swing animation that says "hi" and then move on to the complicated part. The too obvious areas of the project will not be discussed. The relatively complicated areas will be discussed to avoid redundancy as much as possible
We move on to more advanced stuff and discuss trim paths and alpha matte layers
The third part in a series of eight videos that comprise the intermediate typography project.
We start animating a name using multiple layers, precomposing and different animation presets and custom animations
The sixth part in the series
The seventh part in the intermediate project series
The final part of the intermediate project series. All the tools required for designing the intermediate project video will have been discussed by the end of this video. Armed with these tools, you can finish off creating the video yourself.
In this lecture, we introduce a 3d plugin that vastly improves the functionality of After Effects, enabling it to work in a true 3d environment
There are preset options in Adobe AfterEffects for 3D animations. These preset options are discussed in this lecture.
In this video, we introduce the amazing software tools made by red giant products. They can be used as plug ins in after effects to create amazing effects that are amazing :D
In this lecture, we explore the features of the Trapcode Particular plugin before we apply it in our final projects
We look at how to setup a 3d Scene in after effects to move the camera in the scene
In this lecture, we place the characters in 3D space
Learn how to move a two node Camera around in 3D space
We will start creating a rain and cloud scene with some text in it.
We continue the rain and cloud project by adding cloudlets into the composition
We continue the project by adding rain particles into the composition
The last part of this project where we apply color corrections and effects to the composition
We start playing with light effects in 3D
We further the project and start applying light effects
The third part of the project
The fourth part of the project. We use a blur effect as a light source
The final part of the project. We use a fractal noise to make the composition more appealing.
We will create a small scene in Element 3D by using its 3D text features and bring the comp into after effects
MADE OVER $50,000 WORKING ONLINE PART TIME!
I'm Prem and i am a multipotentialite. If you don't know what that means and want to know more , just google it. It is a fancy word for someone who is interested in vastly different areas and industries. We have been told from a young age,either to find our passion and stick to it, or to get a job. I believe that is bad advice in this exponentially advancing digital world, because there is so much out there that you will be passionate about and want to work for. For example, you could be a programmer who also likes to play guitar professionally. I believe that you can do both, if you carefully manage your time.
About Me :
I am interested in many areas and i strive to learn as much as i can about each of them, and so should you if you think you are a multipotentialite too. If not, that is fine too! We need all kinds of people :)
Here is what i have done so far in life:
>> Born in the 90's. Grew up in a middle class family, in the tropical paradise, called Kerala. Google it.
>> Was put into the regular school system, just like most kids. We did not know any other route, and neither did our parents.
>> Went to University. Studied Civil Engineering, and then took my Masters in Computer Applications and another masters in Structural Engineering and Construction Management.
>> Worked at a big construction company in India, as a Structural Engineer. I liked the work, but i wanted to do a lot more. I am a high-energy person. I worked for about 8 hours a day, and was bored for the rest of the day because i did not have much else to do. Therefore, I started learning about whatever i was interested in.
>> Interests include : Software, Programming and Web Development, Business, Marketing, Graphic Design. Cinema, Video and Audio Production, VFX, 3D Modelling and Animation, Advertising, Music and Fine arts.
>> So, with all these interests, i could not confine myself to just a day job. I went and worked in the Kerala Film Industry. Started out as a set assistant, worked later as a Focus Puller, Assistant Cameraman, Worked in post production as a VFX artist, and then became an assistant director and right when i was about to plan my first directorial project, my family immigrated to Canada, and later, I came along.
>> Restarting everything here in the west. What i've learned; Time is the most valuable asset. When you indulge in any activity, ask yourself this; " Could i be doing something better?"
Over the course of the next 5 years, i intend to create atleast 30 courses, spanning every area that i have studied and worked in.
Take a look at what i have created, enroll and leave a feedback :) Thanks for reading :)
