Skill Level Intermediate
- [Mark] Hi and welcome to After Effects CC 2018 New Features. I'm Mark Christiansen. This course covers everything major that has been added to the application. It includes features added to 2018.2 such as Master Properties and the Advanced Puppet Tool. It also includes features added to version 2018.1 in October 2017. This included the addition of immersive video tools for virtual reality. In this course I'll be showing you some powerful, new additions starting with Master Properties which streamline working with nested compositions.
We'll get into the dramatically improved Advanced Puppet Tool. From the 2018.1 update in October 2017 we'll see what you can do when you link nulls to paths. More than you might think. We'll take a look at a number of workflow improvements from font previewing and visual keyboard shortcut editing to the new Property pick whip. We'll explore technically sophisticated features like data-driven animation using JSON files. We'll also take a deeper dive into what all is included in the Immersive Video Toolset and what has recently improved since that was released including support for head-mounted displays.
There are many more changes that don't merit a lesson of their own yet may significantly change the way you work with After Effects. So whether this is your first look at what's new in After Effects or you're using this course to get a more hands-on understanding of the new features, and even to learn about features that you might otherwise only stumble upon I look forward to showing you what the latest version of After Effects has to offer.
