Adobe After Effects is a Motion Media, Compositing, Animation and Special Effects software. It is used for post-production process of television and film production. After Effects can also create 2D and 3D layers and effects and simulate particles like fire, rain, etc. and even be used for color correction and add music to a project. In this course, you will be given an in-depth instruction on After Effects and all the tools and effects in the workspace. You will be shown how to create and animate primitive shapes and move onto a simple to complex bouncing ball. More advanced techniques like 3D layers and cameras will be also demonstrated, along with animating text, particles, lights, and other common effects. Lastly, you will be shown how to build and puppet in Photoshop, then import into After Effects to perform techniques to the puppet called rigging and pinning and then how to make the puppet walk. After Effects can be complicated to use, but once you get the hang of it, it’s very powerful.

Adobe Flash/Animate is an animation and interactive media industry standard software. With it, we can create animation projects such as short films, commercials and even big projects such as television shows. While it is capable of being the only software used for all parts of an animated project, it’s not necessarily a compositing, video editing or sound software. Thus, it’s best utilized with other software such as Premiere and After Effects for animated projects. Flash is capable of both frame-by-frame animation, as well as other, more complex puppeting animation. However, while it has some camera functionality, it’s rather limited with it and again if you’d like to imply 3D space you’re best off including other software with more powerful camera features and manipulation, such as After Effects. However, what makes Flash different from other animation software is that it’s also built for interactivity, and with it you can create interactive projects, websites (though it’s a risky program to use for websites because of SEO), e-cards and video games.
Create beautiful vector art. Adobe Illustrator is the industry-standard vector graphics app lets you create logos, icons, sketches, typography, and complex illustrations for print, web, interactive, video, and mobile. Vectors are drawings consisting of points and fills. The advantage of vectors is that they can be resized in any way, from the size of a postage stamp to a billboard, without losing any image quality. This Adobe Illustrator course will focus on the workspace and exploring the various tools in Illustrator. You will start with the basic tools and work with shapes and use fills and strokes. Demonstrations using pencil, pen, and brush tools which will familiarize you enough with the program so you will be able to create more intricate projects. Those types of projects include; creating a logo, creating a caricature from an old photo, recreating a Picasso painting, all of which will be featured in this video series. And once you’ve finished your project, the various types of exporting methods will be shown so you can export your drawing in the best file type for use for print, web, or to use in other Adobe software.
Adobe InDesign is a layout software that takes images and text and lay them out across pages. InDesign is best used for working with multiple page documents like books, magazines, brochures, portfolios and can even be used to create business cards, letterheads, posters and flyers. Graphic designers and production artists are the primary users of this desktop publishing software. It can also be used in conjunction with other Adobe products primarily Photoshop and Illustrator. In the InDesign course, you will be instructed by a top professional in the design industry that holds the titles of 2D Animator and Adjunct Professor of Animation and Digital Art. You will first be shown how to navigate through the InDesign work area and how to create a new document and import images. You will be introduced to “master pages”, an important tool in creating multi-page projects, then you move onto other tools like creating tables and packaging. This course will be also go through more advanced techniques and design methods as well as types of exports.
Create anything you can imagine. Anywhere you are. The world’s best imaging and design app is at the core of almost every creative project. Work across desktop and mobile devices to create and enhance your photographs, web and mobile app designs, 3D artwork, videos, and more. Adobe Photoshop is powerful, versatile and efficient not only with photo editing but also digital art, graphic design and compositing. In this class we’re going to walk through Photoshop’s basic and more popular functions, and implementing them for simple graphic projects for both print and web. You will be shown the workspace and various tools. The layers and types of layers you will be working with regularly in this creative software will also be demonstrated. You will progress to photo retouching, a popular use of Photoshop. This course will also present a poster design for a band, colorize a black and white photo, and even create a website design for a programmer to use for a website. This course will wrap up with the instructor giving the best exporting for your finished product.
Make visually stunning videos virtually anywhere. Adobe Premiere Pro is the industry-leading video editing software, you can edit virtually any type of media in its native format and create professional productions with brilliant color for film, TV, and web. This course focuses on how to use the workspace and tools along with different videography techniques such as different ways to splice footage and control transitions. You will first be shown how to create a new project in Premiere Pro and how to import footage and organize media. The instructor will then showcase the editing essentials that are offered in Premiere Pro and adding music to your project. You will be shown more advanced techniques like sequence editing and incorporating transitions. Exploration of the tool panel, effect control, and color correction will also be provided in this course. And once your project is completed, it’s time to export and all the different ways of exporting will be gone over so your project will be displayed on its high quality whether it’s for film, TV or web.

Animation comes from the Latin words “anima,” which means “life,” and “animare” which means “to breathe life into” Animation consists of still images (called “frames”) with slight differences between them. When viewed together in a sequence, they give the illusion of motion – like a flipbook.
When thinking about Animation projects, what first comes to mind? Movies and cartoon shows are what people tend to think of first, as they’re the most mainstream. Animation also encompasses:
This is a 2D animation/animation principles course. This program utilizes Adobe Flash/Animate.
