Introduction to Motion Graphics with Adobe After Effects (Online)
Starts September 16
3 sessions: Wednesdays, September 16-30, 7-9pm
Learn how to animate shapes, text, and photos in Adobe After Effects, the industry-standard motion graphics and visual effects software. Topics include using the shape tool and the pen tool to create objects; using the transform tools to rotate, grow, shrink, and move shapes and text; and creating Ken Burns style pans and zooms to add interest to your photos. Participants should have basic video editing experience. Because this class is hands-on and interactive, students need a computer (Mac or PC) with Adobe Adobe After Effects CC to participate.
NOTE: Participation in this online course requires that you use the free Zoom cloud-based video conferencing service. For optimal performance it is highly recommended that you install Zoom on your computer rather than running it from a web browser. A few days prior to the class start date we’ll e-mail you the link and ID code needed to access this class on Zoom. Your instructor will be provided a student roster to take attendance.
