Course Overview
My name is Jeff Hurd, and welcome to my course, After Effects CC Paint Tools. After Effects paint tools are an extremely powerful way to create hand-drawn-type animation. Create a custom brush and grab a Wacom tablet if you'd like to start drawing. Of course you can also use your normal mouse or trackpad to draw in After Effects as well. You can tweak all of the properties and how each brush animates after it's already drawn. It's a really fun and custom way to animate inside of After Effects. In this course, we're going to explore all of the paint tools, while building an After Effects projects. We will create and animate hand-drawn lines, track motion of a hand moving around the frame, and easily paint out tracking lines on the hand. Some of the major topics that we will cover include, drawing and animating with the Brush tool, we'll remove and replace elements of a video using the Clone Stamp tool, perform basic tracking inside of After Effects, and clean up our video and animations with the Eraser tool. By the end of the course you'll know the ins and outs of the paint tools and be able to create your own hand-drawn animations. Before beginning the course you should be familiar with the fundamentals of After Effects CC. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn After Effects CC Paint Tools, at Pluralsight.
