This 3-hour workshop is for artists looking to learn more than just the basics of After Effects. We’ll cover: expressions, shortcuts, and other advanced techniques for altering your animation, such as working with scanned frame-by-frame artwork, or hi-res stop-motion images from Dragonframe. Whatever medium of animation you’re working in, I’ll introduce methods of working more efficiently in After Effects, so that you don’t end up trying to untangle hundreds of layers and effects just to make one small change to your project.


REQUIREMENTS: Participants should already have a good knowledge of After Effects, working with layers, properties and effects. Sample footage will be provided, along with an AE project file of all techniques covered in class. Participants will need a computer with Adobe After Effects (Trial is OK) installed. Participants will need a keyboard with a number pad.
