WORK ON REAL LIFE PROJECTS IN THIS COURSE – FROM START TO FINISH
Icon animation is one of the best looking motion graphic pieces you can prepare, and After Effects is the perfect software to create such animations. With the techniques I teach you will be able to either create the icon yourself or use a ready vector you already have to properly prepare it in Adobe Illustrator. Then you will have no problems using that file to create the icon animation from scratch until a ready and finished proejct.
In the class you will learn:
an entire icon animation workflow and AE tricks,how a Illustrator to After Effects workflow looks likehow to create, prepare and use a vector within after effects,how to package, prepare, export and use it anywhere we like!Become better at motion graphics by creating a design that is in demand and trending
I prepared this short course to show you a complete Adobe After Effects workflow, from finding, selecting or creating the icon to completing the entire animation. You will learn a few basics about the software and definately have fun creating the project itself, since it involves a lot of useful tricks.
The course is project based and straight to the point to both teach you the tools & software and let you create real-life after effects projects right away together with me. It doesn’t require any prior deep knowledge of After Effects at all – but it will be helpful if you know a little about Illustrator, Photoshop and After Effects in general or are familiar with other Adobe softwares.
NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE IN AFTER EFFECTS NEEDED!
MAKE A BEAUTIFUL ICON ANIMATION AND ENJOY IT 🙂
Don’t get me wrong, learning After effects cc or even the newest after effects cc 2017 version from scratch, tool by tool, handle by handle, element by element is an amazing journey and I also have recorded a comprehensive After Effects course in that fashion, but some of you who are already a bit familiar with video editing, animation or motion graphics (fade in, fade out, keyframes, graph editor) would like to start right away.
This course is perfect for students, who want to start learning a little bit about After Effects on the go, from the animation / motion graphics side to create fun proejects for you or your clients. This course will be optimal for people who just want to get a basic grasp of the motion graphic possibilities After Effects provides!
