Adobe After-Effects is a widespread image-compositing tool, which allows you to create multi-layered and dynamic 3D-animations.
You can see it as an extension of Adobe Premiere or Photoshop, where you start mounting moving images, not in a linear succession, but as a layered collage of moving fragments. You can make them move relative to each other, changing and blending in 3 dimensions. You can see it as a gateway to the world of Special Effects, as we know it in Hollywood, but also with us in the audiovisual media, art and entertainment business. We offer you an intensive introductory and interactively guided course-traject, in which you gain experience and basic knowledge of the functioning and opportunities of the program, empowering you to independently start off your own personal creations.
Material required: Please bring your laptop with a pre-installed version of Adobe AfterEffects installed. You can download a full 30-day trial-version form the Adobe website, free of charge.
