What is the course about?
On this practical course you will learn how to create some exciting animated SFX and see it automatically applied to your Premiere project. Many film makers are aware that After Effects is the application of choice for creating exciting animated SFX and titles. What they’re less aware of is that After Effects compositions can live in a Premiere Pro sequence. Changes made in After Effects are immediately reflected in Premiere Pro using a Dynamic Link giving you a render-free editing and graphics workflow.

- Internet connection. The classes work best with Chrome.
