April 11: Adobe After Effects Explained

During this presentation we will review the AE interface in-depth and in detail, review the internal process of how After Effects thinks and processes layers, effects etc., determine good working practices for optimal efficiency as well as build and animate a project or two using imported Photoshop and Illustrator files and how those layers may remain editable and/or vector based in addition to workflow review.

Since this is an evening meeting, we’ll have pizza available.
