Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before taking the course, part of Motion Graphics for Video Editors: Terms and Technology (2014).
- In this course, we're going to focus on two primary editing tools, Adobe Photoshop, for raster, or pixel-based graphics, typically things like photographs. And Adobe Illustrator for vector graphics. Often what you'll see with line art, or illustrations, or perhaps logo files. The core technology here, is just what's important to master. And that's understanding how to work with these images. I don't expect that you are completely comfortable with Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator. If you have some prior knowledge, that will come in handy. But we'll take things from the beginning, including how to Open and Save files.
If you are completely new to these applications, you might want to watch each movie a few times, so you feel comfortable. If you're already quite experienced, pay attention to the subtle details. There are lots of intricacies with preparing video graphics, things like pixel dimensions, color space, aliasing methods, and all sorts of concerns around color and contrast. So, really, no matter what your skill level, I hope you pick some skills up in this course, and that you feel more confident in preparing graphic assets for use in video and motion graphic projects.
