Using After Effects, you can create world-class effects for everything from YouTube videos to cellphone downloads to major motion pictures. But where do you start? Here, with After Effects Apprentice.
This full-color, hands-on tutorial covers everything from simple animation through advanced motion tracking, greenscreen keying, and high-def work. Every lesson's grounded in real-world experience, of which the authors have plenty: They've spent 14 years building a company around their After Effects expertise.
Step by step, you'll master basic workflow; keyframing; trimming and enhancing layers; creating transparencies; animating type; and incorporating music into your effects. You'll learn After Effects' powerful layer parenting and nesting features; save time with expressions; and create 3D animations. There's a full chapter on new After Effects CS3 features, including Brainstorm and the Puppet Tool. And, to put it all together, there's one of the most fun projects you've seen in a book.
