Description

Welcome to Volume 5 of the Quick Start to After Effects, a series of specially constructed courses meant to be followed in sequence and interspersed with valuable exercises to reinforce learned concepts. In this volume, we'll focus on rendering, which is the process of getting your video out of After Effects to watch on your computer or take it into another program for more post production work. We start out with focusing on the specific type of render that you would want to create if you were going to do more work in post. Then, we move onto a more simple render format, that you can use to watch on your computer or for uploading to the web. After we go over those types of renders, we talk about ways to streamline your project and how to collect your files to keep all your assets in one place for better organization. These courses are designed to be taken in sequence so we really encourage you to start with Volume 4 before continuing with this section. We also encourage you to take advantage of the assignments that follow each volume. These assignments will allow you to take what you've learned and apply those tools and techniques to your own projects. Software required: After Effects CC v. 12.0.0.404.
