After Effects: Creating 2D Compositions

After Effects: Creating 2D Compositions

Learning Outcomes:

  • Given the proper tools in the Lesson Lab, successfully create sophisticated video clips using Adobe After Effects.
  • Identify the tools available to manage the sequence and duration of footage items and to nest compositions with 100% accuracy.
  • Demonstrate ability to choose the best media files and the most appropriate tools to create a high quality video clip with information provided in the Lesson Labs.

This one-day workshop will show you how to create 2D compositions with sequenced media clips, layers with animation, transparency, and effects, and will render the output for either broadcast or Internet distribution .

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • Create a composition with media clips that play in sequence.
  • Create motion and animated effects to overlaying media elements.
  • Control the sequence and duration of footage items and nested compositions within a composition.
  • Create transparency in layers with track mattes, masks, and stencils.
  • Render a project as a single file with settings you choose.

After Effects: Creating 2D Compositions

This workshop will: Teach you how to create more sophisticated video clips than you have before, either for broadcast or for the Web. In this course, you’ll use Adobe After Effects 6.5 to create high quality 2-dimensional motion graphics by combining multiple media files and effects. You will create 2D compositions with sequenced media clips, layers with animation, transparency, and effects, and will render the output for either broadcast or Internet distribution.

Class targeted to: Anyone who wishes to work in the video field or who currently works in the field, or an Adobe application user looking to expand his or her skills, looking to add effects to video projects.

Prerequisites: Before taking this course, students should be familiar with the basic functions of their computer’s operating system such as creating folders, launching programs, and working with windows.
