Video and animation are increasingly required in many professions especially for those who work in the social media field such as designers. After Effects is one of the main programs in the Adobe Suite, which allows you to work more creatively with videos. It is also a leader in motion graphics that allows us to make small animation GIFs for social media to an extensive motion graphic project for a client. Film enthusiasts can use After Effects to create special effects.

This course is the first course of the Master After Effects collection. In this course, we are going to talk about the basics of Adobe After Effects. First, we will see how the interface works, then we will go through each panel and cover the most important tools in each panel. After that, we will start creating a composition, and see how timeline and viewport work here. We will cover the most important controls in the timeline. Then, we will cover the type of layers and their controls. After that, we will see how to animate anything in Adobe After Effects explaining keyframes and we will go through the speed graphs to smoothen out the animation.
