Requirements and materials

Basic knowledge of Photoshop and After Effects is recommended. Knowledge in Cinema 4D is helpful but not necessary since your teachers give you an in-depth run through of the software.

To take this course, you need access to a computer with Photoshop, After Effects, Cinema 4D, and Octane Render, or similar software.

New to Adobe After Effects? In that case, we recommend taking Domestika Basics courses to learn how to use the software: Introduction to After Effects.
