After Effects intermediate training

After Effects logo

During this training, you’ll learn how to do compositing in After Effects. You’ll learn how to get the best possible result when doing green screen and blue screen keying, and how to combine multiple layers in a realistic looking way. You’ll also learn to create 3D text and shapes in After Effects.

We spend a lot of time on Tracking, creating Expressions, and on integration with Premiere Pro.

You’ll get some cool source material to play with, so make sure you have at least two gigabyte of free space.
