Any presentation or product advertisement becomes more engaging and attracts more people in the form of video. This is a beginner course that will go through the basics of 2D animation, Presentation, motion graphics and infographics. 

Adobe After Effects is a digital animation software that is considered an industry standard for visual effects and motion graphics. With it, one can take filmmaking and editing to the next level. Objects or backgrounds can be removed from video footage and replaced with new content. Logos, text, or doodles can be inserted into the frame and animated. Shaky scenes can be smoothed, weather elements added, and flat shapes converted into three-dimensional images. Simply put, After Effects lets artists digitally perfect whatever was caught on camera, regardless of skill level. From home movies to class projects to professionally shot videos, After Effects provides the tools necessary to make one’s vision a reality.

This course will give a basic knowledge in keyframes, shapes and layers, effects, expressions and plugins which will give a deep understanding in different styles of 2D animations in After Effects.
