Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Jeff Hurd, and welcome to my course After Effects CC 2019 Building on the Fundamentals. After Effects is more powerful than ever with a brand-new 2019 update. Learn everything not fully covered in our first Fundamentals course before jumping into your first project. In this course, we're going to learn shortcuts, workflows, and everything you need to know to feel comfortable making your own project in After Effects. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include 2D and 3D tracking, creating 3D text and shapes, color correcting and grading, creating masks, using particle generators, and so much more. By the end of this course, you should have a solid overview of all After Effects topics. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into the Pluralsight course After Effects CC Creating Your First Animation, which is the last course in our After Effects beginner's series. This course will be one fun module after another. I'm thrilled and excited to be your author throughout After Effects CC 2019 Building on the Fundamentals at Pluralsight.
