1-Day VFX and Motion Graphics Techniques
Reviewed by Iman C. on 1/20/2021
I took a full-day After Effects course with Al and it was great. I had previously attempted to learn After Effects on my own, but struggled to grasp how to navigate the software. This class was a great intro to the interface and covered an array of key animating concepts. I was the only participant, which allowed Al to focus on specific effects I was interested in learning. His explanations were clear and he took time to review examples and identify the effects in use. Due to time constraints, I wasn't able to practice in-depth, but this course laid a great foundation to develop my skills.
