Learn how to create stunning 3D, VR, and cinematic visual effects (VFX) with Adobe After Effects CC 2018.
- [Alan Demafiles] Hello and welcome. I'm Alan Demafiles. If you've ever seen a blockbuster film, and I'm guessing you have, then you've seen some of the magic that the world of visual effects brings to the screen. The software and hardware used to create some of that magic has never been more accessible, and Adobe After Effects is perhaps one of the most highly regarded and widely used compositing applications. In this course, I'll share with you the essentials for creating visual effects using Adobe After Effects. We'll learn how to separate foreground from background by using rotoscoping and how to work with green screen footage.
We'll examine how to track footage and add our own 3D elements to a scene. I'll show you how to create fire using particles, how to use noise to replace a sky, and even how to crush the pavement with superhuman strength. Alright, maybe not literally, but we'll certainly create the illusion of it. And that's all visual effects really are, visual trickery designed to fool the eye. It's our aim for this course to give you a broad overview of compositing, so that by the end of it, hopefully you too will be able to create some v-effects magic as well using Adobe After Effects. I'm excited to start, and I know you are too.
So let's get going.
