After Effects Getting Started teaches you all the basic skills needed to start using After Effects to create incredible motion graphics and visual effects. By the end of this two day course you will be able to apply best practice techniques to create your first project, build compositions with layers, apply effects and lots more.

During the two days you will learn how to work with text in After Effects, animate content using keyframes, apply masks and track mattes, animate with the motion sketch tool & more.

The Advanced After Effects course is a great follow on for those who have already attended the After Effects Getting Started course or who have equivalent experience.  This course builds on the skills learnt in the beginners course, covering more advanced techniques for masking, animation of text layers, working with keyframes, applying effects and lots more.

During the course you will cover a wide range of areas such as working with the puppet tools to bring your animations to life, using the camera tracker to extract camera motion, working with expressions, and using particle systems to create powerful effects.

Should you use AFter Effects

After Effects is one of the leading motion graphics tools, and is a great solution whether you are looking to create simple graphics effects or more complex motion graphics. It is a powerful solution that has been used on numerous high profile files ranging from Terminator: Dark Fate to Deadpool, but is more often used on simpler projects for things like corporate communications.

If you are simply looking to take cuts from video footage and put them together with transitions and subtitles, then Premiere Pro is a great solution for this. If you are wanting to create powerful motion graphics effects however After Effects is the best choice, and can be used very nicely in conjunction with Premiere Pro.
