More about this course

This class is for everybody that wants to learn how to create a video on Adobe After Effects, especially begginers. Here, I record myself and make a Star Wars video from the footage, talking about the step by step for you to try to make your own, that is: hiding everything that is not supposed to appear in the final video; color correcting the footage; placing the lightsaber (with a free downloadable plugin); adding a lettering; adding a soundtrack; and, for last, rendering. If you are an advanced connoisseur of this software and still manages to learn one thing or two, then I gladly achieve my objetive. So, time to learn!

The course project

This class project consists in creating some project on Adobe After Effects and post the video here. You can use the tools and resources that I teach on this class or even something else. It may be a simple project because I know how managing a project on this software can be a time consuming task, or it can be like I have shown during this class, with a Star Wars theme, or maybe something else. Nevertheless, it is important that I am able to provide you with some feedback so that you can become better and discover other things on Adobe After Effects.

I'm posting both the original and the final videos because I think there was a problem with the audio. I could hear well while I was recording, so I was able to synchronize it, but for you folks I think it may be hard to hear. In the final version, though, you can hear well :)
