What topics should be covered while teaching After Effects CC?
Hello All, I am Ishita Jain, an architect, currently teaching at a university. I am proposing a Speculative Architecture Studio, where the students are required to build narratives of their contexts and we would like for them to learn After Effects as a tools. While I am scouting around Ahmedabad, Gujarat for professionals who can come down and teach, the search isn't yielding some great results so far. Can anyone suggest an online platform where some collaborations can be made?

30 keyboard shortcuts that will save you a ton of time and make animating easier with After Effects (one page .doc handout)
With the 2015.3 update of the Adobe Creative Cloud came a lot of great things. After Effects has an improved workflow with Cinema4D. It's now so easy to export to Cinema4D, do your 3D magic, and get it back again in After Effects without rendering!
I've been asked by a fellow awesome educator (Dan Armstrong) to make a in-depth tutorial for the Caped Movietrailer competition in Idaho. This is a huge competition where high school students from that USA state can make their very own original movie trailer in order to win great prizes for themselves and their school. In order to set them up I've made a 45 minute tutorial with several chapters about Premiere Pro and After Effects. It contains topics from ingesting footage in Premiere Pro until the final export in the Media Encoder. The tutorial has been made for the competition, but could be a valuable resource for other students as wel.
A simple tutorial that could be used as an introduction to keyframing in Adobe After Effects. Its also a good way to show students how they can take a 2d logo created in another Adobe program and take it further by animating it. Like I say in the video, it could be used at the start of a video they have made or even turned into an animated GIF for use on a website.
Hi, I intend to teach Adobe After Effects to my year 10 students and I am updating the teaching programs accordingly. Can someone direct me to some resources I can use. Thank you.
Hello All! Below is a link to a playlist i have gathered from across a variety of the best motion typography tutorial videos on YouTube. The playlists is arranged in a sequential order based on the level of difficulty. I have also attached two student examples from my Year 9 group. The project is to bring visual value to an existing or original piece of music using motion typography & graphics techniques. All work is produced on Adobe After Effects. These playlists serve as a great reference for my Year 9 and 10 students when they are undertaking the motion typography unit at school. Would love to get feedback on this list and suggestions for other motion typography or graphics based tutorials that you find valuable to your teaching!

Hello! I teach After Effects, among other things, in the Visual Communications program at Madison Area Technical College. In an effort to keep my class up-to-date, what are some "real world" projects I should include? Currently, they get used to movement and keyframes by animating verbs, followed up with a logo, kinetic typography quote, banner ad, basic keying, and some lower thirds. The final project is to create a title sequence for a movie, TV show or video game. Planning on adding some character animation next semester too. Any and all feedback is welcome!
How to get your vector files from Adobe Illustrator to After Effects in the best quality. And I'll show the easy ease functions in After Effects for a way better animation compared to a lineair motion. Great stuff in just a few minutes, enjoy watching.
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.

A super easy and great looking way to animate still clouds in After Effects using the corner pin. Easy technique for professional results.
Event description: This live event will show you how you can use your Photoshop and/or Illustrator know-how as a springboard into animating in After Effects. If you (or your students) are already proficient in Photoshop or Illustrator then animating in After Effects isn’t as far off as it seems. Recording URL: https://my.adobeconnect.com/pwka1csyq2yj I've also included the PPT which has a bunch of links in it to tutorials and whatnot.
This is a detailed 2 part tutorial about creating and extruding 3D text in Adobe After Effects - so please don’t watch or complain at its length if you want a quick fix solution. In this tutorial I look at creating the text, putting it in 3D, changing the renderer and selecting the correct Ray-Tracking quality. I look at creating a bevel and making sure the text looks ok - I also so how to navigate around a 3D scene quickly and easily in After Effects. Then, I move on to show how to extrude the text followed up with lighting the scene with both a spot light and a point light. Finally in part 1 I show how to make the item cast a shadow and how to control how the shadow looks.In part 2 I quickly recap and then move on to go through the material options for the 3D layer and then show how to use environment layers and demonstrate the importance of the right ray-tracking quality settings. After that I show how to use the ‘Animate’ options to texture up the text in a much more controllable custom way.

Hello all! I have recently upgraded my class to Adobe CC from CS5.5. We are currently learning Special FX in After Effects and their footage just seems to not want to render all the way in After Effects. It will render to like 14s and restart the play. Is anyone else having this issue or know a solution to this?
