Continue with an introduction to Adobe After Effects and discover different ways you can use it professionally before taking your first steps.

Explore the program's interface and some of the basic tools such as layers, shape layers, keyframes, animation curves, and renders.

Now it's time to put things in motion. Choose a character and analyze their body language and movement to use as a reference for your animation.

Finally, Borja shares some tips on how to put together a professional looking reel and impress your audience on social media, from planning your sequence to adding transitions and other editing tricks.
