After Effects 6.5: Creating 2D Compositions (Level 1 - Windows)
Adobe Training Description

You've probably worked with some design or video editing applications to create imagery, either static or animated. However, you now need to create more sophisticated video clips than you have before, either for broadcast or for the Web. In this course, you'll use Adobe After Effects 6.5 to create high quality 2-dimensional motion graphics by combining multiple media files and effects.

Adobe Training Objective

You will create 2D compositions with sequenced media clips, layers with animation, transparency, and effects, and will render the output for either broadcast or Internet distribution.

Adobe Training Prerequisites

Before taking this course, students should be familiar with the basic functions of their computer's operating system such as creating folders, launching programs, and working with windows. Students should also have basic Windows application skills, such as copying and pasting objects, formatting text, saving files, etc. Students typically have experience using a video editing application such as Adobe Premiere or Apple Final Cut Pro, as well as at least basic experience in graphics applications such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.

Delivery Method

Instructor led, group-paced, classroom-delivery learning model with structured hands-on activities.

Target Student

A person who wishes to work in the video field or who currently works in the field, or an Adobe application user looking to expand his or her skills, looking to add effects to video projects. Some students may be mainly interested in creating video primarily for the Web, and others for film, but the majority are preparing more for work in broadcast video

Hardware Requirements

  • Intel® Pentium® III or 4 processor (multiprocessor recommended).
  • 128 MB of RAM installed (256 MB or more recommended).
  • 150 MB of available hard-disk space for installation, plus 600 MB free space for course data.
  • CD-ROM drive.
  • 24-bit color display adapter.
  • A sound card and speakers.
  • For OpenGL support: Adobe After Effects supported OpenGL card. For a current list, please visit www.adobe.com/products/aftereffects/opengl.
Performance-Based Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
  • create a composition with media clips that play in sequence.
  • create motion and animated effects to overlaying media elements.
  • control the sequence and duration of footage items and nested compositions within a composition.
  • create transparency in layers with track mattes, masks, and stencils.
  • render a project as a single file with settings you choose.
Platform Requirements

  • Microsoft® Windows® 2000 or Windows XP Pro or Home Edition
Software Requirements

  • Adobe After Effects 6
  • WordPad
  • QuickTime 6.1
  • Microsoft DirectX 8.1 software recommended
Adobe Training Course duration

1 Day
