Intro to Adobe After Effects

Opening Adobe After Effects (AE) for the first time can be a bit shocking. While AE is powerful, it is not the most user-friendly software. I’ve heard many stories about people opening, and then closing AE because they just felt lost.

That is why we collaborated with Phil Ebiner of VideoSchoolOnline to bring you a three part series on AE. The series will take you from opening AE all the way to exporting and creating a lower third.

 

Intro to After Effects #1 - Panels & Interface

The first video in this series is geared towards making you feel comfortable with the workspaces within AE. Phil will walk you through all the windows and panels so you will know exactly how to work within AE.
