This course accompanies two other courses that are on the library—"Creating a Mobile App Interface in After Effects" and "Compositing a Cell Phone in After Effects". Each course builds on what is taught in the last, and this course is the first in the series. By completing all three courses, gain an end-to-end workflow for conceptualizing apps; working through low-fidelity wireframes to high-fidelity prototypes.
- [Instructor] This course accompanies two other courses that are on the library. Creating a mobile app interface in After Effects, where we take screens created in Illustrator and animate them in After Effects to produce a prototype of the app that shows the functionality that could be sent to a developer, and compositing a cellphone in After Effects, where we take the prototype animation a step further and composite it onto a live action shot of a phone to produce a promo. Now this could be used to secure funding for the app's development.
So in each course, we're building upon what we have previously created, and this course slots in right at the beginning, as we'll be creating the app screens from scratch in Adobe Illustrator. By the end of this course, you will be able to jump into creating a mobile app interface in After Effects and begin animating the screens. And by completing all three courses, you'll have an end to end workflow for conceptualizing apps, working through low fidelity wire frames to high fidelity prototypes, which can then be used for promoting and securing funding for the app's development.
Learn how to animate the prototype by watching Andy's follow-up course, Creating a Mobile App Interface in After Effects.
