Adobe After Effects: An Introduction - 7054

Description: This class will demonstrate the basic components of Adobe After Effects motion graphics & special effects software. Students will learn how to create a project, import footage, organize their media, use the workspace effectively, and all the basic principles necessary to learn to do basic special effects on their own movies.

This class is a hands-on 'lab-style' class but students are expected to bring their own laptop computers each day with Adobe After Effects installed and running. A free download of the After Effects CS6 is available here: The program is available for both Windows and Macintosh. A 64-bit computer is required. If you can only provide an older version of After Effects for yourself you will still get the full benefit of this class since the introductory features have not changed in any significant way.

The Hart House Film Board has one laptop with After Effects CS6 installed available to its membership. It can be reserved by visiting the Film Board website: and clicking on the equipment loan tab. The cost is $10 per half-week. Instructor: Ammar Ijaz NOTE: Deadline to withdraw from this class is 5:00 pm on March 9th A $7 to $15 withdrawal fee applies.
