After Effects Playground

(1/2) (Skill-share)
Host: After Hours Animation
01:13:14. Virtual event. December 28, 2021.

Description: Overcome your fear of After Effects (AE) by finding its beauty for self-discovery. We will dive into the program with a playful mindset and approach compositing as a fun and intuitive process. An exploration-based attitude makes all the difference– and sometimes all you need is that little spark of encouragement.

Jeanette will cover a few AE principles and delve into a live demonstration of her personal compositing process. Techniques will be applied in both representational and abstract manners. While “basics” will not be covered, previous experience with the program is helpful (but not necessary).
