Overview

This innovative product from Adobe Press and video2brain combines interactive video and a full--color printed reference to teach the fundamentals of Adobe After Effects CS6. Experienced instructors Todd Kopriva and Angie Taylor present 10 hours of high quality HD video, complete with lesson files, assessment quizzes and review materials. The video is wrapped in a unique interface that allows the viewer to jump to any topic and also bookmark individual sections for later review. The unique Watch--and--Work mode shrinks the video into a small window to allow the student to work alongside in After Affects. Project files used in the lessons are included on the disc so viewers can practice what they’ve learned, and interactive review questions help reinforce freshly gained knowledge. The DVD-ROM is bundled with a printed brook that provides supplemental material to enhance the video training.

This course will not only show you the basics of After Effects, it also teaches you what you'll need to know to take your skills to the next level. The presenters will give you an overview of the workflow and the user interface, and then you will learn how to bring assets into After Effects. They'll explain how to configure After Effects for optimum performance, focusing on the global performance cache and persistent disk cache features added in After Effects CS6. You’ll learn a range of compositing features, including the new variable-width masks and 3D camera tracker features introduced in After Effects CS6, as well as basic masking and color keying. You will discover how to troubleshoot and avoid common problems, and then how to create finished movie files.
