Join Owen Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video Getting the most out of this course, part of Creating a Handmade Look in After Effects 03: Compositing and Reusing Elements.
- I'm giving you the entire Oh No Robots project, but the goal is for you to modify it to make it your own. You should have a basic understanding of Adobe After Effects. I'll be referencing key frames, masks, shapes, parenting, trimming and labeling of layers. Most steps I'll call out while I do them in real time so you can follow along, but I won't be slowing down to explain some frequently performed tasks, like duplicating a layer. Also, this is the third course of this series. Check out the other two if you'd like to learn some of the techniques used to design and animate many of these scenes and assets.
If you have been following along, you'll notice some assets and scenes we've created in previous courses won't match these exactly. That's because this was the original project file those lessons were based on. But feel free to import the projects and assets you created and swap them out with anything in this one. I'll be referencing some techniques from those other courses, as well as ranting about enhancing design through limitations and imperfections which has pretty much been a constant throughout this series.
