Today is my first time fully learning After Effect, with many shortcuts and functions explained. However, I’m quite disappointed at the barebones as we don’t really learn much other than placing files and removing green screen with camera movements.
What I feel is particularly cool is the camera function that makes a 2d photoshop pictures turn into 3D by manipulating perspective, but that’s it. Most of the time is spent on importing and layering each file, which I kind of feel we should be able to do more in this amount of time.
The lecturer also introduced us to VideoCopilot where many effects are already made and we can just download some royalty free version, I think that this website will be useful in near future if I choose to specialise in this department.
