ADOBE AFTER EFFECTS: Enhancing techniques

Adobe After Effects is a widespread image-compositing tool, which allows you to create multi-layered and dynamic 3D-animations. You can see it as an extension of Adobe Premiere or Photoshop, where you start mounting moving images, not in a linear succession, but as a layered collage of moving fragments. You can make them move relative to each other, changing and blending in 3 dimensions. You can see it as a gateway to the world of special-effects as used in the audiovisual media, art and entertainment businesses worldwide.

Module 1: Enhancing Techniques
You will be learning how to create a basic 3D scene with flat layers, simulating animated fluids, text integration and simple camera movements. Building on this, we dig deeper in some more advanced camera tricks, lights and shadows, the use of particles, 3D camera tracking and integrating these elements into your video footage. The idea is to guide and follow each student through the creation of their own sequences after giving them the knowledge and skills they need to accomplish it.
