Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video How to use the exercise files, part of After Effects Guru: Tracking and Stabilizing Footage.
If your Lynda.com membership includes it, I've put together a collection of exercise files to let you get hands on. These files are meant to truly let you explore what the Warp Stabilizer and Camera Tracker can do inside of After Effects. I've pulled from a variety of projects, both personal and professional, to bring you real world footage with real world problems. There's a lot of things here that can be better and that's exactly what we're going to do in After Effects. Do some tough jobs that used to be really time consuming in the past and show you the fastest, easiest way to get results.
Now, if you don't have access to this footage, just pull together some of your own files, some footage you've shot and try to follow along. Once the class is done, I ask that you please discard the footage. Don't post this online and please don't integrate it into any of your projects. This is a collection of footage that I got special permission from my clients to share with you for purposes of education. So, I want this class to be very realistic and practical. Just please get rid of the footage once you're done.
