After Effects – Motion Graphics & Data Visualization is the name of the After Effects , Motion Graphics and Data Visualization training course published by Udemy website.
Hi, my name is Dan. I’m an Adobe Certified Instructor and love animating infographics and bringing potentially boring data to life using After Effects through Data Visualization.
This course is for beginners. You do not need any prior knowledge of VFX compositing or any motion graphics experience. We start with great basics, simple icons brought to life with After Effects.
We’ll work through real projects, connecting Excel to After Effects to turn your boring spreadsheet data into accessible visual information. We will experiment with light and camera. We’ll do some interesting things with masking, and look at the importance of sound in your presentation, to exporting for YouTube, PowerPoint and all kinds of social media, including animated GIFs.
There are projects to complement your training, so you can practice your VFX visual effects skills and apply them to your portfolio. A cheat, I have practice files for you to play with. I also save your files as you go through each video so you can compare your files with mine
Useful if something goes wrong. Know that I’ll be there to help you out – if you get lost, you can leave a Q&A video post below each video and I’ll be sure to get back to you. What’s are you waiting for? Let’s build!
