Discover the Best After Effects Classes in Houston

Adobe After Effects is part of the Adobe Creative Cloud. This tool is used to create motion graphics and animation for titles, credits, and special effects in videos. One of the convenient things about After Effects is how well it works with other Adobe products. You can import videos from Premiere Pro into After Effects and add animated elements. You can transfer a photo from Photoshop into After Effects and make it move, or you can use Illustrator to add movement to logos and text. 

People with After Effects skills are called Special Effects Artists and Animators, and they create video content for websites, apps, and social media channels like TikTok or YouTube. Many Special Effects Artists and Animators work in the film, television, and advertising industries, although any industry that needs videos and animation for training or information purposes will hire people who know After Effects.

One of the easiest and most efficient ways to learn Adobe After Effects and switch to a career as a Special Effects Artist and Animator is to sign up for classes. Here are some in-person classes offered in the Houston area, but you can also sign up for live online sessions that run in a similar way.
