Question from Melissa C.
Will we be actually be putting together a short video with graphics from start to finish? I have no experience in after effects so I assume this course is the best to take first or would your recommend level 1? since I have tons of experience in photoshop illustrator and InDesign.
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
In this workshop, students will get familiar with the basics of After Effects by doing a number of short exercises, rather than creating a single video. After Effects is the fundamental-level workshop for this software, and it is recommended for folks who are new to After Effects or need to refresh.
Question from Anonymous
I am only working on a PC. Can this class still help me?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! The software itself is pretty similar and that those skills would transfer fairly seamlessly. However, operating the computer itself will be different. The school recommends the student gets a quick overview of Mac basics, including navigating the Finder on a Mac, as there will not be time to explain this in the After Effects workshop. Hope this helps!

Ivo is a very good and generous teacher. The class was by the book and went fast but it gives a good look into the basic and perhaps most useful areas of the program. when people fell behind or had trouble he went to their aid.

The class provides a basic understanding of After Effects. Teacher was really great - clear, patient and a thoughtful explainer. The actual examples that we went through felt very outdated visually, but the bones were there and I feel confident in my ability to apply what I learned elsewhere.
