Explore all the tools in the leading animation and video program to improve your workflow and the quality of your projects

Domestika Basics · 5 courses included

If there was ever a go-to software for animation and video, it would be After Effects. According to creative director and motion graphics animator Carlos Albarrán, better known as Zenzuke, the program's flexibility allows you to explore your creativity and produce professional-grade work at the same time.

After explaining the fundamentals in Introduction to After Effects and how to animate characters in Build a Friend: From Pencil to Movement, Zenzuke is back with a 5-course Basics to teach you how to master this program and maximize its capabilities.

Start by learning advanced techniques for working with the basic motion graphics tools in After Effect: shape layers and text animators.

Zenzuke then shows you how to create layouts that adapt to different content and how to import external data from a spreadsheet or a database.

Continue with an introduction to what rigging is in After Effects. Discover how to use this feature to bring characters to life and easily create other complex animations.

Next, learn how to integrate external programs like Premiere, Photoshop, Illustrator, and Figma into the After Effects workflow and vice versa.

To finish the course, your teacher shows you some tricks to make your workflow in After Effects significantly faster and more efficient, including how to optimize your compositions, manage colors, and other practical information.

By the end, you'll know how to render anything you can imagine: create a 3D space, enhance web designs, or help in the video editing process. Master the tools to improve your workflow and the quality of your projects.
