After Effects is one of the great animation & composition tools used by web designers. Its goal is to help create and distribute animations and special effects of professional quality for television, cinema, web, etc. While it is very useful, the program can sometimes seem a bit difficult to use and even be quite scary to the newbies.
Most of the creative team members at EVO were self-learners. We watched a lot of tutorials, and use some tricks to get the result we were looking for. But that means that a lot of time was wasted on projects because of that.
However, thanks to a 3-day training with Thierry from AE Formations, we are now, Alexandra, Clara, Lorena, Marianne and Sacha, up-to-date and ready to make great things!
Because we want to share our knowledge and our experience with you, here is a little food for thoughts.
