In order to take this course you will need the following:
After receiving excellent feedback and five star ratings from my first Udemy course, I have decided to give something back with a completely free course that shows you some simple tricks and techniques to improve your workflow. I have also received great feedback from my YouTube channel videos, of which you can find a link to on my profile.
Adobe After Effects CC: Tips & Tricks, is built around getting you, the student, working faster and more economically within Adobe After Effects…and…its FREE!. I have been teaching Adobe After Effects for many years and I have seen students make the same mistakes over and over again, this course is built on ensuring you do not mak these mistakes. The course is constructed out of multiple screencasts which shows you how to get After Effects running faster, how to avoid common errors and mistakes and simple ways to craete faster animations faster and better!
As this is a ‘How To’ course and not a ‘skills progression’ course, there are no assignments within this however I have still set you a little task at the end of the course if you wish to undertake it! If you do be sure to tweet me your final work! (My twitter can be found on my profile).
The first section of the course is a welcome lecture where I talk about how the course will work and how you can communicate any questions or issues to myself. The next session dives right into Adobe After Effects and looks at how we can modify After Effects preferences to make the software run faster and better for us, we then look at 20 quick tips to speed up your workflow, then we take a look at best practices for rendering with Adobe Media Encoder and finally, the course ends with the top 5 mistakes I see students making in after effects, and how to avoid them.
The course has a couple PDF Handouts along the way which you are free to download and work from if you prefer working with these instead of a screencast.
If you have signed up to this course I strongly advise you to use the Q+A board if needed and you can also tweet any feedback to me via my twitter, which is found on my profile. It would also be useful if you could leave a review/rating on the course. These are just some ways that I can get feedback of you to further improve my courses in the future!
