Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching the course, part of Motion Graphics for Video Editors: Working with Type (2014).
- In this class, I'm going to assume that you are relatively new to the applications. However, I hope that you have some experience working with both Photoshop and After Effects. If you've already used the applications, or you've taken a look at the essential training series here on Lynda.com, you're going to feel more comfortable. But, even if one or both of these apps are fairly new to you, I'll still make sure to point out the key things you're going to need to know. But rather than taking a look at everything these apps can do, we're going to take a very narrow look at specific commands and tools that are needed for type-based graphics.
Now, if you'd like to really fill in your knowledge, be sure to explore the many courses available here on Lynda.com, as well as the essential training series for both Photoshop and After Effects. But, no matter what your skill level, I'll try to get you up to speed, and share some really useful shortcuts along the way.
