    Kalika was a fantastic instructor bringing patience and humor to every lesson. Thanks to her, I have a strong grasp on the topics covered, am confident in my skills and capability to delve further into the app. Kalika is the rare teacher who goes the extra mile for her students because she's happy to. One suggestion note is that there are a few lessons that start off with importing or setting up in more than one way for the sake of learning how different modes function. I think the class would benefit from taking time in between the demonstrations to practice that part before continuing into the bulk of the lesson - I found that I forgot what the take-away was from that initial portion of the lesson by the time the demonstration was over, and conducting that portion on my own created an interruption between the demonstration and going through the section on my own.

    I had been trying to learn After Effects on my own for a while, but it wasn't until I decided to take the course through Noble Desktop that things really started to make sense for me. Now I feel that I have a solid foundation and am more excited than before about learning After Effects. As much as I enjoyed this class, I only wish that there was a second part to this course or something that would take you into some of the more intermediate/advanced techniques with track mattes, rotoscoping, null objects etc.

    i like the smaller classes since it gives each of us to ask the teacher about something, and it makes the conversation to feel more collaborative instead of lecturing. I definitely love to take more if i have time outside of work. It's a bonus to knowing some history why the program was built in such a way for the industry.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I choose an After Effects class?

Check out some class descriptions online and look for one that appeals to you. Read the list of what will be taught, look at student reviews, and choose a class that fits your schedule and budget.

Is it better to attend an After Effects class in-person or online?

That depends on what you are comfortable with. If you enjoy in-person classes and there is one offered in your area, choose an in-person class. If you like the convenience of taking a class from your home or office without having to travel or if there are no in-person classes near you, choose a live online class.

What will I need for an After Effects class?

To take an online class, students will need a computer with an internet connection and a copy of the software they will be learning. Adobe Creative Cloud offers a one-week free trial of their collection of products, after which you will need to buy a subscription to continue using After Effects. Students will also need a computer powerful enough to handle motion graphics. Adobe recommends a fast processor, at least 2 GB of RAM but 16 GB is best, fast storage, and adequate video processing to run After Effects. 

Can I learn After Effects online for free?

Theoretically yes, you can learn After Effects online for free. As a matter of fact, Adobe has a collection of free tutorials on its website that cover all of its products. There are also many YouTube videos and online tutorials to teach you the basic concepts, but After Effects is a complicated program and can be challenging to learn. The guidance of an experienced instructor is valuable when learning After Effects.

Is it better to learn After Effects in a live or self-paced class?

Whether it is better to learn After Effects in a live or self-paced class depends upon a student’s learning style, personal motivation, budget, and schedule.
