OVERVIEW


Welcome to Adobe After Effects training at Bring Your Own Laptop.

Adobe After Effects CC is to film and video what Photoshop is to photography. It has far reaching involvement in animation, special effects, titling, compositing, 3D and video production. If you have any connection to video post-production for web, broadcast or film, then Adobe After Effects CC does something you need. You need to know how to use it, and Bring Your Own Laptop will show you how, weather you know a little or know nothing – we’ll get you up and running.

2 days of hands on learning based around creating interesting and useful content with After Effects will give you the understanding and skills you need to add this critical app to your skillset. Our training opens a world of possibilities to your video production, and gives you the understanding to tap the limitless possibilities of Adobe After Effects.

Our aim is that every delegate leaves our InDesign Course with the confidence to apply their new skills effectively in the real world. That's why we continue to help you after your class with 12-month complimentary email support.

More Course Information

At the heart of After Effects is the idea of working in layers (like Photoshop) and applying effects and transitions to create something new. It’s a bit like staring at a blank sheet of paper at first, and we know that can be intimidating, even for people that have already had some exposure to After Effects, or compositing in other applications.

We start from the very beginning. Our Adobe Certified experience in a variety of apps means we know what Adobe was thinking, and we want you to understand After Effects the way it was designed to operate.

You’ll start at the beginning learning how to create a project, import footage and resources, how to add them the timeline, and then what different plugins, effects, transitions and tools are available to bring your resources to life. You’ll then learn how to ‘render’ and export the final result to suit the specs of different web and video applications.

We know the best way for you to grasp what you are learning is to do it – but we don’t just throw you in the pool. You get to start with the basics and quickly see how they all combine to create more sophisticated results.

All this great training is at our comfortable central Auckland site with your own laptop (or you can borrow one if you normally use a desktop). You’ll be joined by likeminded class participants, and we really emphasise the participation. You are expected to ask questions, solve problems together and get the help you need right away – no boring lectures here, and no self-guided sink or swim exercises. No one gets left behind.

We also provide you with printed notes that match the course, so you don’t spend the 2 days trying to write everything down. We also know you will have questions after the course and you get a whole year’s worth of email support from your instructor.

Because the program can appear ‘deep’ we’ve made sure that the 2 days take you well beyond the basics and show you how different features interact, and why you would want to try different approaches to the same ideas to create a variety of results. You have time to try different things and compare the end result. You are under less of a time crunch, so you have time to formulate the questions you need to get the most out of your time with the instructor and your fellow trainees.

Bring Your Own Laptop’s training gets you acquainted with the After Effects Workflow – including creating a project, importing resources, creating layers and a new composition, the different tools, working with project settings, exploiting layer properties, how to read and work inside the timeline and of course how to output the final result using the render options.

You get to create projects that will show you how to animate text, bring layers alive with animation and you will discover the difference between moving the objects, moving the canvas and moving the camera. If you thought Photoshop was powerful (not to mention fun) wait until you can do the same with video and animation!

After Effects has a staggering number of abilities (hint: some are easy to find, some need a bit of guidance, that’s why you come to us) and it’s easy to get swamped, or miss something vital – no fear we are experts at making it understandable and getting to you actually use the tools productively.

Through the process you will build up a repertoire of skills that can be used singly or combined to solve a problem or create a masterpiece. We make sure you know how it all goes together.

Doing animation or video post-production without Adobe After Effects is like tying one hand behind your back. Trying to learn After Effects without Bring Your Own Laptop is the same. Get hands on interactive training that makes you learn by doing. Get real time help and understanding as you go, not a few chapters or days later. And do it in an environment designed to be relaxed and productive with people who want to share the journey with you.

It doesn’t matter if you have never seen After Effects, though a basic understanding of computer use is assumed. We make sure you learn everything you need to know to become proficient and creative with After Effects, and that you understand when to use the app instead of the limited features inside an editing app. We are fond of saying ‘from zero to hero’ around here for a reason. We know how exciting it is to be given the skills to make use of any creative app, and we know how to make that happen for you.

So now is the time to call or email us to book in for the next Bring Your Own Laptop Adobe After Effects CC training course in Auckland. It’s the best 2 days you can spend to open the door on vast array of creative options for anyone involved in creating motion graphics, video editing or animation.
