After Effects training in-class or online
What will I learn if I attend Advanced After Effects training?

In this blog post, Marek Mularczyk demonstrates some of the effects you’ll learn to create in Armada’s one-day advanced-level After Effects course, that will make your motion graphics stand out from the rest.

Powerful text animators

You’ll learn how to create and control sophisticated text animations from scratch, so you don’t have to rely on text animation presets. Here’s an example of the type of text animator you’ll create:


You’ll learn how to add expressions (script) to your animations to carry out a task.

Expressions can be used to create a looping animation, often used in animated infographics such as the following:

And animated countdowns:


You’ll learn a variety of advanced techniques that will make your graphics stand out from the rest, such as a snow effect, rain effect and rotation:


Slow Motion

We’ll show you how to apply slow-motion and fast-motion to videos, and teach you how to create a variable time-remapping to make some parts of the video play more slowly (or faster) as in the following example:


Tracking is a powerful and popular feature in After Effects that’s covered thoroughly in our advanced course. Typical examples we’ll cover include tracking car footage:

And tracking someone’s face, e.g. to blur it out:


And lastly, you’ll learn techniques for implementing 3D into your After Effects workflow, to produce effects such as the following:

I hope this gives you a taste of the types of effects you’ll be creating after just two days training on our Advanced After Effects course.
