All the NEXT links and the links in the menus to the side of the videos in this course lead to the wrong course.

Hi Chandler, we had some Caching issues but if you hard refresh your browser (Or just close and reopen it) you should see the correct lists. Sorry about that.

I want to create some square media files for Instagram and attaching to emails. My current document has been created at 1080 x 1080px with a video, audio, logo and text - please can you advise on optimum Render output settings as I want the movies to look good but be small enough for easy distribution. My final question : Is there a way of setting the videos to loop on output settings with AE?
Thanks for your help.

Hi, my name is Dan, and I love animating Infographics, and bringing potentially boring data to life using After Effects.

I've made this course for complete beginners. There is no need to have any previous knowledge of After Effects or Motion Graphic Design. We'll start at the super basics. We'll bring in a couple of icons, we'll add Easing, we'll add some Motion Blur, we'll add some very cool Overshoot. We'll also look at Anticipation. And then, my favorite is to Offset them.

We'll work through real life projects. Connecting Excel into After Effects to transform your boring Spreadsheet data into approachable, visible awesomeness. We'll experiment with writing in Canvas. We'll do some fun things with masking. All the way through to exporting for YouTube, PowerPoint, and all sorts of social media, including making some animated GIFs.

I've got projects for you to complete. So you can practice your skills and have some things ready for your portfolio at the end. There's also exercise files, so you can play along. There's also a cheat sheet, both video and a PDF version.

Do you know what the best part of this whole entire course is? It's learning how to track handsome individuals from New Zealand, very, very accurate data. It's true, I say 'awesome' a lot.
