Learn After Effects CS6 At Your Own Pace
(PRWEB) November 30, 2012
Software training firm InfiniteSkills this week introduced its Learning Adobe After Effects CS6 Tutorial, a course designed to help both beginning and experienced users master key elements of Adobe's motion graphics and compositing software.
After Effects is a program used to edit videos after production, allowing users to animate, edit, and composite media in 2D or 3D space using its extensive tools and plug-in capabilities. It is most commonly used to add animation to videos and to make final edits such as image adjustment and color correction.
InfiniteSkills' Learning Adobe After Effects CS6 Video Training - DVD is a training course designed to help users learn key skills and techniques involved in post-production and quickly integrate After Effects into a video production workflow. Experienced users will benefit from chapters covering new updates such as the increased use of Cycore Effects.
Course author Jeff Sengsteck is an Adobe Certified Expert, having authored more than 300 articles and nine books covering various areas of digital media production with Adobe products and other programs. After a career in television news, where he learned the process of video production from hands on daily experience, Sengstack has turned his attention to training and education, working as a consultant, author, and a professor at Santa Rosa Junior College where he teaches video production.
Sengstack's years of practical experience, as well as his clear presentation style, make the Learning Adobe After Effects Training Video - DVD an easy-to-understand and enjoyable way to learn post-production animation and editing in a matter of hours.
After an overview of After Effects' basic functionality, Sengstack covers editing in After Effects, beginning with how to interact with layers and how to use them to control animation.
"The big thing about After Effects," Sengstack says, "is that you can make things change and move over time. We’ll use layers to manipulate object scale, location, and properties, so you can easily add animation to your videos."
Other key chapters in the Learning Adobe After Effects CS6 Tutorial cover drawing and paint tools, how to animate paint strokes, using the Roto Brush to mask and highlight regions or to morph objects, and several other post-production tools and techniques.
New features covered include the ability to track camera moves in a simulated 3D space, allowing users to place animation or text in a scene, for instance a sign on a building, in a way that blends seamlessly with the motion of the camera through the scene.
"My goal," Sengstack says, "is that by studying this course, you'll be ready to make great after effects projects."
