DAT: Video Editing 1B - Intro to After Effects

with Marcus Cisneros


Probably the most freeing thing as a filmmaker is knowing that you have the ability to truly do whatever you want with your footage and create worlds as an animator and Visual Effects Artist. In this course, students will learn the fundamentals of Adobe After Effects in the fields of Motion Graphics and Compositing.  Coming off of the Intro to Illustrator course, Motion Graphics will empower the members to take their designs and animate them for the motion picture. Taking what members will be learning in photoshop, Compositing will give the members the ability to create VFX (Visual Effects) to their footage to create such effects as green screen,  matte paintings, and much more.
