Understanding how a post-production application like After Effects fits within a larger workflow can be valuable. After Effects Project Workflow shows how to integrate the various parts of the Adobe Production Premium suite and other applications with After Effects in a real-world project. Adobe Certified Instructor and Expert Chad Perkins explores this integration as he creates an interesting project, building with static images, animation, sound, particles, video effects, and 3D elements to produce an impressive final project. Chad explains the creative process from paper to final project, and shows all the steps in between. Exercise files accompany this course.
