In this After Effects tutorial, we'll learn how to get started using the video editing software After Effects. Using After Effects we can quickly composite images, edit video, and create visual effects. We'll begin the tutorial by learning the basics of importing images and moving around the After Effects user interface. Then we'll do some basic compositing, masking, animation, and color correction. We'll finish with a project to composite a 3D render, create an interesting animated wipe, and render it into a video file. Software required: After Effects CS4 for project files.
