Getting started with Adobe Illustrator CC and Adobe After Effects CC

Project Published 1/11/17 Last updated on 6/8/17

This tutorial demonstrates the essentials of creating an animation using Adobe Illustrator and Adobe After Effects. The graphics are created in Illustrator and imported to After Effects to add animation and visual effects. The demonstration recreates the Apollo 11 moon landing, with the lunar lander arriving on the moon's surface. This tutorial could be adapted for a history lesson, with students re-creating other historic events, or perhaps used in a Drama or English lesson to create scenes from plays or novels. The final animation is saved in a format suitable for uploading to a video sharing site or a Virtual Learning Environment.
