Course Description

Adobe After Effects enables you to add special effects and animation to graphics-related projects. After Effects teaches you to animate, alter, and composite media using various tools and special plugins. This program is the industry-standard software for motion-graphics pros, web designers and visual effect artists for video editing.  In this course, students can learn how to use After Effects without having any prior knowledge of the program so both beginners and intermediate users will benefit from this course.
