Delve into the world of motion graphics, keying, and compositing in After Effects CC. In this course, Ian Robinson lays out six foundations for becoming proficient with After Effects, including concepts such as layers, keyframe animation, and working with 3D. To help you get up and running with the program, the course begins with a project-based chapter on creating an animated graphic bumper. Next, explore the role layers play in compositions and find out how to add style to your projects using effects and graphic elements. Last, see how to build 3D objects with CINEMA 4D Lite, as well as stabilize footage, solve for 3D cameras, and paint in graphics with the Reverse Stabilization feature.
In this course, we'll definitely be covering a lot of keyboard shortcuts. Now, everybody's keyboards are slightly different. If you have, say a laptop or a fullsize keyboard, or if you're on Windows or on a Mac. Or if your F keys are mapped to other functions in your operating system. So these are all things you need to consider, when I'm calling out these keyboard shortcuts. If you ever find yourself stumped, and you want to find yourself a new keyboard shortcut, you should go up to the Help menu. Under Help, there's a great reference for keyboard shortcuts.
If you go ahead and choose that, notice it will take you to a website. This is always continuously updated. But let's jump to a specific section like Time Navigation. If I click on there, notice a lot of the key commands are listed, but I want you to pay attention to the alternate key commands. For example, some keyboards don't have the Home key, so you could also press Cmd + Option + Left Arrow. There are a number of different key commands that function this way, especially if you have a full size keyboard or a laptop keyboard.
For example, 0 on the numeric keypad, will load up a Ram Preview. Or you can press Ctrl + 0 on your main keyboard. After you've jumped to a section and found your shortcut, if you ever want to go back to your reference just click to the top. Everything's organized according to groups, and that way you'll never be lost when looking for your keyboard shortcuts.
