What's this course all about?
After Effects is an amazing program that can help you create motion graphics, visual effects, and titles that make your videos better, but it can be intimidating to try out. In this 60-minute course, you'll learn the magic of keyframes - the basis of creating motion graphics in After Effects.
You'll take the title card that you created in the first Dive into After Effects: Understanding the Basics course, and you'll introduce each element of your title card in a unique way. These include motion, scale, opacity, and rotation animations; trim path animations; and 3D transitions.
This class is perfect for video creators, designers, and everyone who wants to learn After Effects in an non-intimidating way. We recommend taking the Dive into After Effects: Understanding the Basics course first. By the end of the class, you'll have the basic knowledge to start animating graphics and dive even further into the world of After Effects.
Animate a title card for your brand (or your favorite brand) within After Effects. This assignment will teach you how to use keyframes to introduce different elements (text, images, shapes) to the audience. If you are brand new to After Effects, take the first course in the Dive Into After Effects series to learn how to design your own title card directly within After Effects
