What will I learn if I attend After Effects training?
In this blog, Sam Sturley demonstrates five top effects you’ll learn to create in After Effects on our two-day introductory-level course.

1. Create motion graphics
Create text and objects and then animate them using keyframes. Create cartoons, explainer videos, intros, lower thirds and visual effects.
2. Apply effects
After Effects has powerful effects to help you create amazing compositions – from stylising effects, to simulations, transitions and time effects, it will take you a while to get through them all!
3. Animate in 3D
Make any of your layers 3D, extrude text and objects and add cameras and lights to create 3D-looking objects and motion.
4. Green-screening and motion-tracking
Use After Effect’s keying tools to apply backgrounds to green-screen videos, and use motion-tracking to track the movement of objects across the screen.
5. Character animation
Use things like the puppet tool, parenting and anchor points to animate your 2D characters.
I hope this gives you a taste of the types of effects you’ll be creating after just two days training on our Introduction to After Effects course.
