About The Class

animate your video projects.

Adobe® After Effects® is not only the broadcast industry’s motion graphics and animation standard, but it’s now more accessible than ever as part of your Creative Cloud® membership. In this intensive 6-hour course, renowned author, video producer, and Adobe Community Professional Jeff Foster will show you how to use the many functions of Adobe® After Effects®  to enhance your projects with animated titling and 3D motion graphics.

You’ll learn how simple it is to:

  • Create motion from your Adobe® Illustrator® and Adobe® Photoshop® files
  • Animate title text and designs in 3D space

While Adobe® After Effects® can be intimidating at first glance, Jeff will teach you just what you need to get started in this amazing program without overwhelming you.

    Excellent class! Makes After Effects much less daunting to tackle and explains it in clear way. The bright purple background was distracting and annoying though.
