Course Description
Adobe After Effects is the industry-standard motion graphics and visual effects software that lets you “take any idea and make it move”.

This three-day workshop suitable is designed to be accessible to those new to post production techniques. Participants will be guided through practical exercises and learn how they can use this immensely powerful software to design and animate with greater creative freedom.

Technical Requirements
This course assumes little to no prior knowledge of Adobe After Effects CC. Basic knowledge of Adobe Photoshop is recommended.

The course will be broadly useful to not only those working in media but also those who have to produce compelling visual content that will leave a lasting impression in today’s image saturated landscape, such as marketers, educators, non-profit staff, artists and students.

Participants can use Objectifs’ iMacs which are installed with Adobe After Effects CC, or are welcome to bring their own laptops with the software installed (download a free seven day trial here). Sample files will be provided by the instructor for use during in-class exercises, as well as comprehensive notes.
