In these After Effects tutorials, we'll learn how to get started using the video editing software in After Effects. By using After Effects, we can quickly composite images, edit video, and create visual effects. We'll begin this project by learning the basics of importing images, compositing images together, and production workflows for rendering safely. Then we'll do some basic compositing, masking, animation, and color correction. We'll finish the course by creating a transition between two videos and learn about pre-comping. This series of lessons is a great starting point to learning After Effects. By learning the basic workflows of After Effects, we will be able to create appealing animations and video in no time and begin using After Effects in our production pipeline. Software required: After Effects CS5.
