Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, welcome, welcome. This is Chad Perkins here. On behalf of lynda.com we are going be going through all the After Effects effects here in this title. I am so passionate about this. After Effects effects can do so much. So you can takes something like fractal noise and turn it into fire or water and take something like foam and turn it into bubbles or ants or whatever. There's just so much that effects can do. Join me as we go through this training series, feel free to not watch all in a row because that would be a very long trip, but to jump in and use effects as necessary but I invite you to kind of explore and get comfortable and see what's out there.
There's so many undiscovered effects that you'll be surprised that can really change your workflow. So maybe masks that you make, relections that you make other things like that you spend so much time doing on a day-to-day basis can be handled simply and easily by effects. You just got to find the right ones. Now, before jumping into the training series, it's very important thing you watched these intro movies. Usually I realize that they're not super interesting but there's a lot of important stuff you need to know before going forward. So again I'm Chad Perkins on behalf of Lynda.com, thank you so much for joining us. Let's get going.
