Adobe After Effects CC Intermediate background

Adobe After Effects training

Our Adobe After Effects training will help you create sophisticated moving images and cinematic visual effects (e.g. ground-breaking motion graphics and blockbuster visual effects) for use in theaters, living rooms, and on personal computers and mobile devices.  You can mix footage of any size and format, photographs, 3D renders, text, vector artwork, and music – and make it all come alive.

For those new to Adobe After Effects our Introduction course content covers the basics (creating motion graphics and visual effects in 2d and 3d).  More experienced users should look to our Intermediate course for the best techniques to be used with animation, layering and masks.

“Dom was brilliant and extremely patient considering I was a total newbie to After Effects.  I often had to ask him to jump back and repeat things which he was more than happy to do. The course was enjoyable and I felt a sense of achievement with each completed stage. It's also great that we have post course support.  I will definitely use Enliten again. Thank you.”
