Adobe After Effects is the industry standard for creating motion graphics and continues to expand in its abilities to handle both 2D and 3D motion graphic creation, manipulation, and compositing.
Students create dynamic content for logo treatments and commercials and understand visual effects features such as keying and compositing for film, video or multimedia. Through daily hands-on assignments, the class explores the tools of After Effects including layers, blending modes, masks and alpha channels. Core animation concepts such as key frames and parenting are covered in-depth.
The class exercises focus on practical, real-world application of the tools. Students gain a solid understanding of After Effects and an appreciation for the possibilities of creating motion graphics.
