- Exercise Files
If your lynda.com membership includes it, I've put together a collection of exercise files to help bring the lesson to life. You can download this and follow along. Just be sure to use these files just for educational purposes. When you're done with this course, please delete them. Additionally, I did use a couple of third-party things that aren't standard with After Effects. So you'll want to go and download a free font. It's available at latofonts.com and it's absolutely free. It's an open source font. You can download it and install it on your system, Mac or Windows, using the open type format.
I'm also using Trap Code Particular for some of the comps. And you can download a fully functional demo from the Red Giant website if you'd like to follow along as well. Special thanks to Community Health Charities for letting us share one of their real world projects that we've worked on here at my company Red Pixel. And if you'd like to see the completed production or learn more about what Community Health Charities does, be sure to visit the link on the screen.
