Learn how to use the projects and source files.
- [Instructor] If you have access to the exercise files go ahead and download them from the relevant tab on this page and then extract the ZIP file. I already did it on my machine, so here is the relevant folder. Now I've organized the exercise files like I would organize any typical motion graphics project. Any files that references by this project can be found in the Footage folder over here. We'll need After Effects CC 2019 or higher to work with these files.
But if you didn't upgrade yet, I've also included a CC 2018 project file which you can find inside the Footage folder over here. You're also going to need to sync two fonts from the Typekit service. Those are free font. The names are Museo Sans 900 and Museo Sans Italic. I'll mention it again when we'll get to this part during the course itself. To make it easy to follow along I have created separated compositions for the different stages of the training.
In some cases we will build on the work that we did in previous movies, and in others we will start with an existing comp. Anyway, in the start of each movie you will see an overlay which will tell you where are the relevant file and if this is a continue mission from a previous movie. Note that a minor part of this course, actually just one movie, doesn't have an exercise file due to the usage of third party plug-ins.
But don't worry about it. You won't need it to follow along. Now, if you don't have access to these project files don't be alarmed. You can still learn a lot just by watching this course and using your own files. So, sit back, and join me as we start diving in.
