Curriculum

Section 1: Introduction
00:59

Let me briefly introduce the content of this After Effects course where you will learn how to create templates and video transitions for usage in your own or clients videos over and over again. This After Effects knowledge can be applied again in the future to create more templates for resale.

01:08

If you have any trouble at all learning After Effects I have several options which will get you closer to understanding this software. I have recorded short lesson with an general overwiew on After Effects and an extensive 5-hour course teching you everything you should learn before you get started with advanced stuff.

09:10

This After Effects CS6 CC and CC2015 lesson is intended to teach you the neccesary AE basics to get you going. With help of those basic informations you will easier understand what is going on during the more advanced lessons.

1 page

Here are all the neccesary After Effects project files for AE CC, CC2015 and CS6 for your usage.

Section 2: Design different transitions
09:08

In this lesson we will prepare our first After Effects transition for our template.

07:46

This transition will involve usage of downloaded files in order to create an unique, custom tailored transition suited to our scheme.

10:08

We continue our transition journey and prepare another unique animation with help of shape layers in After Effects. This will get us closer to finish our After Effects template.

07:35

Brushy brushy is here! In this cool After Effects CS6, CC, CC2015 transition we will create a pattern by ourselves (or you can download it from the available assets in the download section) and use that to create a totally custom transition for our video content.

06:58

The 5th transition will wrap up the basics and first part of this course with a clean and simple reveal. We will use shape layers, keyframes, position, scale and rotation properties in order to create this motion graphics design.

06:30

This is a new lesson I recorded in June 2016 to update the course content with new material. It's a quick and simple technique to master a liquified / toxic animation spreading from the middle of the screen. Nice After Effects tricks shown by the way :)

05:22

Here I want to show you a quick technique to create a fish-eye transition. We work with circles but the middle of the screen doesn't quite get revealed with a circle, and that's what is cool about this transition!

2 questions

Simple questions to heat your grey cells!

Section 3: Make a re-usable & sellable template
09:17

This will be the first lesson from our second part of the course. We will learn together how to prepare COLOR CONTROL layers. Color controls in After Effects will allow us to change colors of certain layers all at once in one place.

05:22

Since the content gets into details I have splitted this lesson in 2 parts. Learning how to create those color controls will prepare to create After Effects templates now and in the future. There will be a bunch of useful shortcuts and techniques involved.

04:15

With this lecture I want to guide you through the COLOR CONTROL layer creation process for transition 3. If you found it troublesome to perform the steps shown in the previous lessons alone, open up After Effects and follow this one.

06:23

In this lecture I will teach you about Blending Modes and Track Mattes in After Effects. This will be a quick guide which will teach you the essential basics of those two functions and techniques.

08:29

The next step in our template-creation process for After Effects will be creating interesting reveal layers for all transitions. We will only have to create this step once and copy it over to all transitions to have beautiful possibilities of revealing our screen again.

01:51

In this lesson I would like to take you through the creative process of adding another hand drawn reveal animation.

07:53

If you perhaps have trouble doing that on your own, you can follow me and my screen on how I did add those REVEAL layers to all our After Effects transitions and animations.

2 questions

This quiz should reinforce the learning and impregnate the knowledge you acquired until now!

Section 4: How to use & render the template
04:57

This will be a technique I want to teach you which includes using Track Mattes in After Effects. Not only blending modes but aswell track mattes allow us to achieve amazing effets with 1-click tricks. Find out how you can reveal one video with another video!

04:43

Here I can show you how the person who has the template can use those transitions in order to add them into their After Effects projects or video editing work.

05:51

How can this template be used within Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, in your videos, client videos. What else is possible will be shown in this lecture.

Section 5: Conclusion
01:32

Show off to me and fellow students what did you create with a GIF or screenshot of your After Effects work, I will be glad to verify, give hints, or simply be amazed by what you did!

00:57

At this point I would like to give you a big high five and thank for holding out until the end and probably applying the taught techniques! If you found the course interesting and informative I will be happy if you could share a review. Thank you for participation!

Instructor Biography

Andrzej Pach, Engaged and Passionate PowerPoint & After Effects instructor

Hi! My name is Andrzej Pach, more known as "Nigel" and I spend my time with graphic design, motion & animaiton, typography, video editing and online teaching on a daily basis. The majority of my work is done in Adobe After Effects & Microsoft PowerPoint 2013 / 2016 - naturally this is the software I want to teach about and share my experience with you. I have completed well over 3000 graphic projects (On Fiverr alone more than 2500 reviews) for clients, mostly including video animations like intros, outros and transitions for various Youtube channels & marketers. I would like to share the knowledge I was able to "stack up" during the process. I am always willing to help people out by enhancing their brand and Internet media.

Who am I ?

I am a 27 y.o (born 1989) and a University Graduate (July 2014). A few years back after shifting from one hobby to another after getting hired to prepare a website and business card for a local business in my area I finally "felt it". Since then (2011) I was expanding my skillset in this area completing various graphic related projects. Places like the WarriorForum, freelancing websites or graphic contests across the web caught me in its own snare and never let me go.

What is the next step?

After having several years of experience as a freelancer with a keen focus on creativity handling various projects ranging as work for very small businesses to websites and Youtube channels with over 300k subscribers I am looking forward to share my knowledge wrapped up in exciting courses easy to follow and most important - USEFUL for you! I am looking to work with forward-thinking people who wish to create something original, that will reinforce their brand and follow their vibe. I am always committed to provide value while giving away random tips to make your workflow easier.

Did you really create something?

How far would bring me lying and any sort of scam? Nowhere. I do believe in making the Web Business and Internet Marketing world a better place, because my actions will affect my fellowers, friends, family and future children. Since I live in a small village where people work in agriculture or do physical labor work I set the goal for me to be a sort of pioneer in the web-based business field growing myself as a designer every single day.

You can always contact me as I don't mind talking to anyone and sharing how could I help your business or what course I might record if you like my teaching style!
