Nov 16: Intro to After Effects

Ever wonder what is under the hood in After Effects? Well, wonder no longer. Jacob Stone will present and describe the overall basics of After Effects to get you started with animating and creating basic motion graphics in no time. In this presentation, he will cover the interface, layers, keyframes, how to create and animate shapes, how to create and animate text, how to import assets, and how to create fire. There will be a practice file with everything in the presentation so you can follow along if you bring a laptop

Since this is dinnertime, we’ll have pizza available
