If you're interested in visual effects compositing and you know a bit about After Effects, this course is absolutely for you. If you're not as familiar with After Effects, I might suggest you pick up some fundamentals. You don't need hours of training before you come to this course but it helps if you've just had the experience of bringing in some files, getting them into the the timeline, keyframing them, taking a look in the composition viewer, getting some composition settings right, and rendering out the final result.
These are all things that we'll delve into. But we're going to be going at a slightly faster pace and a somewhat more advanced level in this course. It also helps if you know a bit about video. And, it's really great the more you can learn about the camera itself. This is something we'll get into throughout these courses, and it's something that really serves you well as a compositor to know about.
This course was created by Mark Christiansen. We're honored to host this training in our library.
