In this lecture you will learn how to write text on a composition created in Adobe After Effects. There is a detailed explanation about the various panels used in the process of inserting text in you video composition how to create vertical and horizontal text ho to ad color to then and even strokes to enhance its look. make your composition look attractive with typography. And how you can use various effects to animate your text. So have a look at the video lecture and become a professional typographic artist. Also use text to make your video more meaningful and easy to understand, give that eye catching effect to your video to grab the attention of your audience.

Working with Text in After Effects

Vector graphics are made up of lines and curves defined by mathematical objects called vectors, which describe an image according to its geometric characteristics. Examples of vector graphics elements within After Effects include mask paths, shapes on shape layers, and text on text layers. In this lecture you are going to learn about shape layers and also ho you can create various shapes and how you can use then in your composition to make a attractive looking video.

Also learn Several features of After Effects including masks, shapes, paint strokes, and motion paths.Tools and techniques for creating and editing these various kinds of paths overlap, but each kind of path has its own unique aspects.

A path consists of segments and vertices. Segments are the lines or curves that connect vertices. Vertices define where each segment of a path starts and ends. Some Adobe applications use the terms anchor point and path point to refer to a vertex.

Go through the video lecture and create something for your video.

Shape Layers

In this lecture you will learn how you can create animation using various options and also various type of basic animation which can be made to give a professional looking touch to your video.

Opacity, trim path, scaling, positioning and so much more with just a few easy steps.

Also ho to place an attractive looking image in your animation at the background, that would give five start to your creation also enhancing its attractiveness.

Further Exploring Animation

 Masks will become an integral part of working in After Effects for anyone who uses the program on a regular basis. Not only do masks allow you to decide what can be seen or not seen in a layer, they also allow you to add effects to just a part of a layer while leaving other parts intact. 

Note: The important thing to remember when drawing custom masks is that you must close your path.   In other words, the last point that you place must be connected to the first point.   After you place your last point, click on the first point to connect them and close the path.

So have a look at the lecture and learn ho you can create mask for your own project.

Working with Masks

In this lecture you will learn how you can work like a professional how you can. trim you layer and convert them into sequence of layer and at the same time animate the ans providing a smoother flow using more key frame options that gives a ouch of a pro. looking animation to your composition. 

Animating Layers & Sequencing

The Puppet Pin tool allows you to place pins on your image to define where joints on your character will be. These are best placed on actual joints like elbows, knees and other parts of the body that can rotate.

You can then control click these pins and record your manual animations directly in the timeline window.

Also, puppet that is controlled from above by pulling on strings attached to its limbs. In other words, you can animate the puppet by tugging on its strings.  

You can do the same thing in After Effects by using the Puppet tools. However, instead of strings, you will use pins. What happens is that the Puppet effect will deform part of your image based on where you place the pins. Those pins determine which part of the image moves and which do not.

Come lets learn more with the video lecture.

Introducing the Puppet Tools

Create Awesome video animation by Morphing Shapes in After Effects like never before! This course will give students techniques to execute morphs and transitions to give their video presentations the upgraded, dynamic look that clients want. In this course, you can learn how to incorporate Adobe After Effects motion graphic animation in your compositions. This powerful tool is legendary for its motion graphics capabilities, but it holds secrets and mysteries that many don't know about. In this course, you will learn all those secrets and mysteries and use them to take your skills to another dimension.

So lets get started with our video lecture.

Note: Morphing shapes is a special effect in motion pictures and animations that changes or morphs one image or shape into another through a seamless transition. Most often it is used to depict one person turning into another through technological means or as part of a fantasy or surreal sequence.

Animating Custom shapes (Morphing)

In order to separate the object from the background, you need to define the edges of the object in the first frame of the footage. Using  the Roto Brush tool.

With the Roto Brush tool selected, define the areas of the footage that you want to keep. Change the view level to fit the entire object body in the frame. Use the brush to paint along the interior of the object body.

In this After effects tutorial, we'll learn the basics of Rotoscoping using After Effects. Digital rotoscoping is the process of creating a mask or matte to isolate part of an image or video so you can change it or add it to a different background and is a very important part of the visual effects process.

Using the Roto Brush to Create Mattee and Extract Objects

When you make a layer a 3D layer, the layer itself remains flat, but it gains additional properties: Position (z), Anchor Point (z), Scale (z), Orientation, X Rotation, Y Rotation, Z Rotation, and Material Options properties. Material Options properties specify how the layer interacts with light and shadows. Only 3D layers interact with shadows, lights, and cameras.

When you convert a layer to 3D, a depth (z) value is added to its Position, Anchor Point, and Scale properties, and the layer gains Orientation, Y Rotation, X Rotation, and Material Options properties. The single Rotation property is renamed Z Rotation.

When you convert a 3D layer back to 2D, the Y Rotation, X Rotation, Orientation, and Material Options properties are removed, including all values, keyframes, and expressions. (These values cannot be restored by converting the layer back to a 3D layer.) The Anchor Point, Position, and Scale properties remain, along with their keyframes and expressions, but their z values are hidden and ignored.

Lets See how you can convert a 2D graphic into 3D using after effects.

Working in 3D

Adobe After Effects (AE) is really cool, powerful software you could use to enhance the video you’re working on. The bar is rapidly moving up for eLearning video creation. Most of us who create media for training need to expand our toolbox to embrace the challenge. We need to create the very best work we can do … every time. After Effects is a program unlike any other image manipulation software on the market. Many others have tried to make something similar. No company has been successful. There’s a reason why many Hollywood films use After Effects as a part of the post-production workflow. It works. And it’s an extremely powerful software tool. So start creating video for your self and learn more on how you can create videos with this video lecture.

Advanced Video Creation and Editing Techniques

What is rendering?

Rendering is the creation of the frames of a movie from a composition. The rendering of a frame is the creation of a composited two-dimensional image from all the layers, settings, and other information in a composition that makes up the model for that image. The rendering of a movie is the frame-by-frame rendering of each of the frames that make up the movie. 

It is common to speak of rendering as if this term only applies to final output. However, the processes of creating previews for the Footage, Layer, and Composition panels are also kinds of rendering. In fact, it is possible to save a preview as a movie and use that as your final output.

Start the video lecture and learn how you can get the output for your composition using After Effects
