If you have access to the exercise files that accompany this training, then congratulations. You're making some wonderful life decisions. And I want to take just a second here and explain to you how these exercise files are set up. So in the exercise fo, folder you'll find a folder for each chapter, and they correspond to the chapters from the training. And if you are going to go through chapter four for example, then if you open up chapter four, you'll find the project files that go with that training, that, that chapter. Now what's really interesting is that these project files are mostly base of Aftereffect, that's the host application that I use for this training although you could use Final Cut for most of it or Premiere for most of it. But the After Effects Project files are in these different chapters and these After Effects Project files point to the media, in the Media folder. And so if you're looking for extra files to play with you'll find them here. I've also included in these folders specifically the R3D Stills folder and the Video folder additional videos and still images for you to play with. It should also be noted that especially with the R3D folders here, R3D Stilsl is in R3D video that these are 4k, 12-bit raw files for you to play with. They have tons of latitude, they're great for playing around for color correction 'cuz you can push them very far.
As we'll see later in the training in one of the cases we start with. This woman, this footage and then we piece by piece clean it up and turn it into that. Whereas if you were to take other clips that started out looking like this, you wouldn't be able to make such great changes in it. So, that's how the exercise files are laid out for this course.
