Lesson 1. Getting to Know the Work Area

Lesson 1. Getting to Know the Work Area

This first lesson introduces you to some basic concepts and features of After Effects.

In this lesson, you'll take a look at some basic features of After Effects while viewing a completed project—an inviting opener for a promotional videotape being produced for a performing-arts center. This opener includes music provided by the fictional client as well as backgrounds and textures originated by you or culled from your stock library. During this lesson, you will examine windows, features, and the files that you'll use in Lesson 2, "Ballet Special Bumper," when you actually create a movie.
