- Now before you get started in this course, there are a few things you need to be comfortable with. The first thing is a foundational understanding of After Effects. If you don't have that, I recommend checking out some of the Essential Training. Also, you might wanna be familiar with Cinema 4D Light. That comes bundled with After Effects, and there are a couple different courses on that separately, but that too is usually covered in some of the Essential Training for After Effects.
