In this course, author Ian Robinson introduces Adobe After Effects CS6 and the world of animation, effects, and compositing. Chapter 1 introduces the six foundations of After Effects, which include concepts like layers, keyframes, rendering, and moving in 3D space. The rest of the course expands on these ideas, and shows how to build compositions with layers, perform rotoscoping, animate your composition with keyframes, add effects and transitions, and render and export the finished piece. Two real-world example projects demonstrate keying green screen footage and creating an advanced 3D composition with the expanded 3D toolset, an important addition to CS6.
Adobe After Effects is an application used by video professionals to create engaging motion graphics and cinematic visual effects. Video pros use After Effects for 2D and 3D animation purposes, creating dynamic text animation using Robust Typography tools, applying non-destructive effects to video using various tinting and adjustment methods, isolating objects from their background using Rotoscoping technology, and correcting for camera shake by utilizing cutting edge stabilization features.
After Effects is an industry standard for motion graphics and effects, and it allows you to create visual compositions like these. In addition to its ability to edit, After Effects also integrates with several other Creative Suite applications, like Photoshop for animating 3D layers, Premiere Pro with shared effects and copy and paste support, and Flash Professional for creating engaging web animation sequences. Adobe After Effects provides video professionals with a sophisticated animation and compositing environment with several different effects and tools to help take your video project to the next level.
