Motion Design II: Effects and Compositing
For students who have mastered the technical basics, this course emphasizes the use of effects to support your visual concept with artistic decisions and design strategies. Using After Effects, students explore the complexity of life video combined with 2D animation using expressions, effects, parenting, 3D controls, lighting, and audio. Students learn to analyze effects sequences and decipher ways to recreate them in After Effects. Projects are developed step-by-step, mirroring a real-life client-artist relationship and are intended to result in a professional piece for a demo reel.
