Adobe After Effects is the industry standard when it comes to producing, manipulating and stylizing videos and animations. At BAVC in San Francisco, our Adobe After Effects training class teaches you how to use this powerful tool and integrate it in your practice, but the application itself goes very deep. Prepare to dive in. In this one-day course we give you a platform to experiment with several useful effects to take the mystery out of what they do and how to implement them. We will also discuss ways to troubleshoot problems and ways to continue learning outside the classroom by teaching yourself how to wield this complex set of tools. Beginners and experts alike are welcome to join in as we unpack many simple techniques, overlooked effects and approaches. After a comprehensive drill down on the interface and exploration of DIY approaches, students will put together a short educational segment and demonstrate mastery of a technique by sharing their findings with the class. Possible areas of exploration include:

  • Create a write-on using masks, paint tools, and the write-on effect
  • Demystify effects like particles, distortion effects, and color effects
  • Distinguish differences between effects and layer styles
  • Extend your toolbox and skills with add-ons, tutorials, and popular online resources
