Adobe After Effects - Introduction - Live Online TrainingArmada
Introduction to Adobe After Effects - A 2-day motion graphics training course for beginners. Live Online Training lets you join a live training course from your place of work or home.
This two-day Introduction to Adobe After Effects course is designed to provide delegates with a comprehensive knowledge of the techniques and tools needed to carry out common motion graphics, video compositing and visual effects tasks in After Effects.
Also introduced are some of the more advanced features available, including keying, tracking, 3D space and shape layers.
Fully accredited by Adobe, the programme is delivered via a combination of lecture, demonstration and hands-on practice by a tutor who is both an Adobe Certified Instructor (ACI) and an Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) in After Effects.
Our approach to online training
When you attend our Live Online Training, you’re participating in a real course, hosted by a real trainer, in real time.
- See and hear our trainer and other delegates participating in the training.
- Allow our trainer and the other virtual delegates to see and hear you (if you have a webcam, and you’re agreeable).
- Interact by speaking, using chat, or raising your ‘virtual hand’ if you need assistance.
- Share your screen with our trainer to show them what you’re seeing.
Your experience will be as close as is possible to actually being in the classroom…
- The training will follow the same syllabus, and will be hosted by the same Adobe Certified Instructors, as our classroom-based courses.
- We’ll post you a training guide, and send you all the information you need to participate in the training. We’ll even post you a headset and microphone if you need one.
- You’ll carry out exercises using the software you’re being trained in, assisted by our trainer. If you don’t have access to the software, we’ll send you a link to fully-functional trial software that you can download and install.
- You'll receive an e-certificate confirming successful completion of an Adobe accredited course.
- You’ll be entitled to 30 days’ email support from your trainer.
Self-funders can spread the cost over 12 months, interest-free.
