From Hollywood to your home, Adobe After Effects is changing the way we look at things. The program's 2D and 3D compositing, animation and visual effects tools allow users to create innovative graphics and visual effects for film, video, broadcast, DVD and the Web. Using After Effects, students will learn the concepts of video, time-based animation and special effects. We will explore program features that include keyframing, editing, masking, type, 3D environment and tools. Importing media from a wide variety of applications, including Adobe Photoshop and QuickTime files will also be covered.
