Create a 2D video presentation from scratch

Welcome to the complete Beginner’s Guide To Adobe After Effects.

If you are a designer and looking to apply effects and transitions to your video, or create animated logos, illustrations or infographics After Effects is the program to edit in.

The tools in After Effects make it very easy to build video compositions, add video effects and motion graphics to bring your presentation to life.

This course has been carefully created to bring you up to speed with the program so not only will you be able to create a simple project yourself you will be able to watch many more

On this course, you will learn all the methods I use to create my videos, so if you have never used After Effects before, wonder how the software works and want to try some simple animation.

This course is for you.

The topics that are going to be covered in this course are the basics so whether you have the most up to date version of After Effects or you’re using an older version, you should be able to follow along just fine.

In this series, we will be starting from the very beginning and working our way across 48 episodes to learn all the basics and eventually put it all into practise and build a video presentation project of your own.

After watching this series you will be able to create your very own video presentation in After Effects ready to export and share.

To help break down the process I have structured the course in 3 main sections:

Section 1 – Introduction

Section 2 – Essential practice

Section 3 – Create a project

So once you have downloaded the project PDF and the project folder,

Let’s get into it! 



In this video series, I will be using Adobe After Effects CC for mac. Almost all of the principles demonstrated and covered will apply to future and previous versions. Some differences may apply if you are using a previous or future version.
