After Effects CC | Level 1
Reviewed by Anonymous on 6/21/2016
I feel like this class was more on focusing on After Effects word terms and not so much being able to play around with different files and animate stuff. I feel like I could have learned this online.
After Effects CC | Level 1
Reviewed by gwen f. on 5/16/2016
i like the smaller classes since it gives each of us to ask the teacher about something, and it makes the conversation to feel more collaborative instead of lecturing. I definitely love to take more if i have time outside of work. It's a bonus to knowing some history why the program was built in such a way for the industry.
