For professional editors using editing programs like Final Cut and Adobe Premiere, After Effects has become an essential tool for creating motion graphics.

In this beginner’s class, we’ll teach you how to use After Effects for video production, introducing you to the program’s functions and possibilities.

You will work on either a new or existing personal project, to learn the basic workflow of animating objects and effects for video, as well as how to use graphic elements to create motion and title effects for your credits.

Note: If you have never used a Mac before, we recommend you take Mac Basics before taking this class.

Note: This class will be taking place at The Wacom Experience Center.

This class is part of our Animation & Visual FX track. Learn more about our media education tracks here.
