He shows how to gather video, audio, and graphical source materials into layered compositions, make edits and adjustments, then bring it all to life with a powerful array of visual effects and animation techniques. These skills are demonstrated in a series of increasingly intricate projects, from creating a galaxy to building a fantasy battle scene. Chad also demonstrates workflows for keying and compositing, shows how to integrate with other applications, shares useful tips and secrets, and much more. Exercise files accompany the course.

(upbeat music) - [Voiceover] Hello lynda.com viewing audience. My name is Chad Perkins. Welcome to Adobe After Effects CS4 Essential Training. Adobe After Effects is an industry-leading and very popular, well-beloved application for motion graphics, compositing, animation, and visual effects. In this course, we'll start from the ground up. We'll learn all the basics, including how to animate, how to apply effects, and much more.
We're also going to be looking at tons of projects. We're going to be creating a galaxy scene from scratch. We're also going to be compositing, taking multiple layers that don't belong together and making them look like they do belong together. We'll be covering tips and tricks, little known secrets and features, new features, how After Effects integrates with other programs, and much, much more. Thanks for joining me and let's get started.
