(Music playing.) Hello and welcome to After Effects CS4 Beyond the Basics. My name is Chad Perkins. I'm an Adobe Certified Instructor in After Effects and it's my pleasure to share a program with you that inspires creativity. In this title, we'll expand on what we covered in After Effects CS4 Essential Training. We're also taking on topics and tricks that haven't ever been covered before on lynda.com. For example, I'm going to show you how to create some common motion graphics elements like light swooshes and ink spatter.
We're also going to dig deeper into the integration of Photoshop in the After Effects workflow. We'll even learn how to cut up an image and use After Effects to animate it and bring it to life. You'll see advanced ways to animate objects and how to use those concepts to create more realistic animations. We'll also look at more on expressions, more on playing with time, more on outputting to the right file format and compression method and a regular smorgasbord of tips and tricks that you can feast on.
