- [Voiceover] Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls welcome welcome! This is Chad Perkins here. On behalf of we're going to be going through all of the After Effects Effects here in this title. I am so passionate about this, After Effects Effects can do so much. You can take 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 so join me as we go through this training series. Feel free to not watch all in a row 'cause that would be a very long trip, but 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 are so many undiscovered Effects that you'll be surprised that can really change your workflow so maybe marks that you make, reflections that you make, other things like that that you spend so much time doing on a day to day basis can be handled simply and easily by Effects, you just gotta find the right ones. Now before jumping into the training series it's very important that you watch these intro movies. Usually I realize that they're not super interesting but there's a lot of important stuff that you need to know before going forward so again, I'm Chad Perkins on behalf of thanks so much for joining us, let's get going!
