Each folder within the chapter folders contains a photo in either a JPG or the native Photoshop format. You are also encouraged to use some of your own photographs as well. If you are familiar with After Effects, you can skip ahead to the next chapter. However, if you have never used After Effects before, the next few videos give you a brief overview.
- [Instructor] The exercise files for this course include a series of assets that you can use to follow along with me during the course. I would also encourage you to use some of your own photographs as well. Now when you unzip the assets there will be a few main folders, Chapter 1, Chapter 2, and so on, that will correspond to the chapters in the course. And each folder within those main chapter folders will contain a photo in either JPG or native Photoshop format. And so now if you're familiar with After Effects you can skip ahead to the next chapter and get started. However, if you've never used After Effects before the next few videos will give you a brief overview of After Effects, including how to set up a workspace, and how to both import and export your photos into and out of After Effects.
