    Amazing class taught by Mr.Mark Chandler. The 3 jam-packed days were just a steller foundation on what's possible with creating in After Effects and Premiere. The class was a mixture of informational lessons and real-world perspectives. I feel more confident tackling more AE projects now.

    Chad was a great professor and really dove in depth on the topics we covered. And the curriculum wasn’t super rigid either, we did lots of exploring and playing around which was helpful. It’s always great to see someone else’s process. It definitely helped that I was the only student too, got to pick his brain more than I might have in a larger class. I appreciate him still doing the class for one student!

Discover the Best After Effects Classes in Los Angeles

When you think about motion graphics and animation in Los Angeles, movies come to mind. The state of California has more Special Effects Artists and Animators than any other state in the U.S. Whether you want to create movie titles and effects or motion graphics for advertisements, learning Adobe After Effects (Ae) can set you on that path. 

After Effects is a software tool used to create motion graphics and visual effects. Motion graphics means text and images that move. Ae is also used in post-production for color correction, audio mixing, compositing, and animation techniques like rotoscopting and motion tracking. One of the ways Ae is most commonly used is to replace screens on cellphones, televisions, and computers that appear in a video or on film. 

After Effects is part of Adobe’s Creative Cloud, a collection of tools used for all kinds of creative endeavors. The tools in Creative Cloud all work together, so you can begin a project in one product, like PhotoShop or Premiere Pro, and then import it into another, like After Effects, to add motion graphics and effects.
