- Hi, my name is Rich Harrington, and welcome. We're going to be taking a look at repairing and enhancing footage. Now, this is a class for all sorts of folks, whether you think of yourself as a motion graphics designer, or a video editor. We're going to be taking a look at ways to improve upon footage, and I'm going to share with you several clips from real-world projects. Now, these clips are going to have a variety of problems. Sometimes, it's just aesthetics, something I want to change about the shot to make it look better, or to compensate for something like lens distortion.
Other times, it's going to be problems that we didn't catch in the field that we had to fix in post. I have a wide range of tools that we're going to throw at this. I'm going to find myself using Adobe Bridge to keep things organized. And then I'll spend equal time in Photoshop and After Effects to get the job done. In fact, we'll even jump into Adobe Illustrator for a cool special effect involving vectors. Whether you want to make your footage look better or just give it a little bit more style, I think you're going to have a lot of fun today with this course. So, thanks for joining me.
