Courses in this path


These courses will help learners reach a comfort level when working with basic features of After Effects. The outline below presents the main topics. They include: workflow, animating layer properties, working with text, applying and animating visual effects, creating shapes, working in 3D space, and exporting a project.


This section focuses on diving deeper into some core After Effects skills. Tracking & Rotoscoping are vital parts of compositing and should be a part of your knowledge base when you’re finished with this section. You’ll also come away with an understanding of using the Puppet tool, Shape layers, and a deeper knowledge of transparency and blending.


This section is also a deep dive into After Effects skills but with a focus on some of the more advanced sections. You will have already seen Precompositions earlier in the path but you may not realize some new and exciting ways to use them that you’ll learn here. You’ll also get a comprehensive understanding of animating with the Graph Editor. The After Effects Brush Tools and an understanding of Color Grading will also be picked up in this section.
