Adobe After Effects Training - Advanced
Duration: 3 days
Overview of the course
One of the most advanced After Effects courses you can get. These three days will teach you how to master the concept of colour correction, work with advanced expressions, 3D lights, rigging cameras, time re-mapping, as well as hundreds (literally!) of tips and tricks. Upon completion, you will have mastered the key skills to bring your ideas to life and will be able to create visually stunning videos, infographics and animations. You will be working on real-life projects with our expert motion graphics artists. This course will also prepare you for the Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) exam, which is an excellent way to prove that you can use After Effects at an advanced level.
If you are not truly satisfied with your Adobe After Effects training, neither are we. Let us know on the first day and we will make it right. Otherwise, we will refund 100% of your money.
Once you have completed your After Effects course, you will have access to our email and telephone support for a lifetime. You can contact us for any questions or technical issues, related to what you’ve learned on your training course.
