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

In this blog post, Adobe Certified Instructor Marek Mularczyk demonstrates some of the effects you’ll learn to create in Armada’s two-day introductory-level After Effects course.

Motion graphics

You’ll learn to create animations for the web and social media, such as animated images, text, audio and video files. Here’s a typical example of an animated banner for social media, that comprises an animated image and animated text:

We’ll teach you techniques to take your text animations to the next level, using some amazing presets. For example:

And you’ll learn to add effects to your layers, animate these effects so they change over time, and manipulate anchor points.

In the following example, the anchor point on the balloon has been manipulated to change its animation, and the clouds created from scratch, and animated so they move across the screen.

Track Mattes and Masking techniques

You can create some amazing results using Track Mattes and Masks, techniques taught in our introductory-level course.

You’ll learn to place videos inside text and images:

and replace screens, such as the laptop screen in this example, with videos or animations.

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.
