After Effects PowerStart is the world’s best learning experience for mastering After Effect’s unique and sophisticated motion graphics creation environment
  • MacMall Part #: 7236848 
  • Manufacturer Part #: AEPS 
  • Platform: Universal 

Some of you may be wondering what weve been up to lately. Well, we have many top-secret projects cooking up in our lab, buried deep within the Hollywood hills (yes, weve taken over Dr. Evils lair after his retirement).

One thing is that weve collaborated with the great Stephen Schleicher on the worlds finest After Effects hands-on course. Final Cut Pro editors have delved into LiveType, then Motion, but many are finding they are still seeking an industrial-strength motion graphics and compositing environment. There are many great reasons After Effects continues to be the tool of choice for top industry professionals doing everything from major film and broadcast work to corporate, education, science, medicine and more.

We are very happy with how this course turned out. The effectiveness of the training is only matched by the quality of the production… unparalleled in my (biased) opinion!

After Effects PowerStart is the worlds best learning experience for mastering After Effects unique and sophisticated motion graphics creation environment, whether you are a professional graphics artist, video or film editor, or new to digital media.

What will I learn in this course?

After Effects PowerStart consists of two lessons: “Foundations” and “Advanced”.

The Foundations course begins with a series of modules covering the After Effects interface and basic concepts. Then, you will build a simple but ultra-cool title animation and gain a solid grasp of the entire After Effects project creation process and workflow.

Then, in the Advanced course, youll dive many layers deeper into After Effects, building an sophisticated, professional-level project incorporating video, vector elements, text, effects, masks, nested compositions, alpha channels, transfer modes, 3D layers, and many other intermediate to advanced features of After Effects.

How is this course presented

To master any software, you must do, not just watch. After Effects PowerStart is presented in the next-generation, innovative chunkalized™ learning environment, light-years beyond any other teaching method. You will actually build the tutorial project yourself in After Effects with the help of your virtual instructor. Each technique and process is presented in a series of clear, easy-to-understand steps.

Why is this course far superior to the plethora of other training books and discs?

After Effects PowerStart was created by top experts Stephen Schleicher and Josh Mellicker. Stephen, a well-known digital media expert and teacher, was chosen by Adobe as one of the worlds top After Effects gurus to write large sections of their advanced Classroom in a book. Josh is considered among the foremost experts in motion graphics and digital media, and has been working with After Effects since the CoSa days.

Unlike other products that rehash the product manual or cover tools and concepts in an order convenience to the author, each and every concept and action presented on this DVD is presented in context of completing a real world task. So youll immediately be able to put what youve learned to work on your very next project.

And we deliver this all to you with crisp, sharp, high quality visuals on your computer screen, unlike fuzzy, headache-causing DVD video discs. The movies on After Effects PowerStart are huge, so you get the whole picture. The easy-to-use navigation and comprehensive map also allow you to jump directly to any section for quick reference after youve been through the entire course.

What if the course goes too fast or too slow?

Speed is not even an issue with our training discs. We encourage you to learn at your own pace. In our chunkalized(tm) learning environment, you must verify that you understand and have completed each step in the process before your virtual instructor moves on. Quickly move through sections you understand, make your virtual instructor go over difficult concepts as many times as you need without worrying about other students or the time limits of a class. You have total control.

What if I have a question?

No one should have to learn alone. Our “Ask a Question” button will allow you to post your question on our After Effects forum for thousands of other users, including our own industry-leading instructors, to answer. You can ask questions, offer advice, and share tips in a collaborative, organized online environment on the very topic that you are currently learning.

Should I buy After Effects PowerStart if Ive been using After Effects for years?

This course is mainly designed for new users with material that will be familiar to anyone who has been working in After Effects for a while. However, any editor who has not yet attained the mastery of After Effects they desire will find going through the whole course from the beginning solidifies and improves their understanding of After Effects.

We do guarantee that youll find tons of unique tips and secrets sprinkled throughout the course that will be invaluable for any After Effects artist.
