What you'll learn in this after effects class:

Adobe After Effects is the tool of choice for many professionals in both animation and video post-production. Because it is an Adobe product it is similar to Photoshop in interface, with a whole lot more thrown in. This class is designed to get you up and running with the program in the shortest amount of time possible. It's a chance to see what After Effects can do, and to try your hand at some serious animation. This class will give you a strong working knowledge of After Effects' capabilities for creating GIFs, animating logos, importing layered files from Illustrator and Photoshop, and integrating video and sound. 

This training covers the basics of the user interface, the timeline, video, layer animation, easing in and out, fade-ins, and much much more.

It is strongly recommended that you have experience with Adobe Photoshop before taking this course.

Very good for learning with no experience or for filling in the gaps from self teaching AfterEffects. Wish there were a little more complex concepts taught other than just moving shapes around on 2D space but you can only teach so much in a day. Got a little too quick towards the end when exporting projects and learning different compressions so it felt arbitrary to even explain. But overall good class and great teacher, perfect pace for learning from scratch and if you need to learn specifically how to make gifs and logos

Kalika was wonderful! I enjoyed the course and learned a lot. My only critique is pretty specific to me personally and not a judgement on the class as a whole... I tend to learn pretty quickly and I felt a lot of the "lab" time between chapters ran long. I was able to skip ahead and finish the second project about halfway through the day, so I felt like I was doing a lot of sitting and waiting for everyone else to catch up. I was able to start lesson B (the extra lesson at the end of the book with the HBO logo) but I would have loved to learn a couple more advanced tricks and tips since I am unable to take the more involved AE courses offered at this time. Basically I felt like the course could have been a little more condensed and/or covered a bit more of the program's interface.
