Description

I am an Elite Videohive Author, who has published over 100 After Effects Templates and over 50 After Effects and 3D Tutorials and under the name of Maxafter since 2009. I can tell you that the easiest way of making money is by selling After Effects templates. Since the Marketplace has some strict Visual & Technical Requirements (High end Graphics, Easy Customization, File Formats, Encoding Formats, Resolution etc) for uploading the Templates for buyers. so this course will help you to learn from building an After Effects Template from scratch to finally preparing a Zip file for uploading.

7. Creating 3D Banner
8. Adding and Animating Camera
