Hi there, my name is Dan. Im a Adobe Certified Instructor and I LOVE animating infographics & bringing potentially boring data to life using After Effects through DataVisualization.This course is for beginners. You dont need any previous knowledge in VFX Compositing or any motion graphics experience. Well start with the super basics, taking simple icons breathing life into to them with After Effects.Well work through a real life projects, connecting Excel into After Effects to transform your boring spreadsheet data into approachable visual information. Well experiment with lighting & cameras. Well do some fun things with masking, looking at how important sound is in your presentation, all the way through to exporting for Youtube, Powerpoint and all sorts of social media including animated GIFS. There are projects for you to complete, so you can practice your VFX visual effects skills and use these for your portfolio. There is a cheat sheet and Ive got exercise files so you can play along. I will also save my files as I go through each video so that you can compare yours to mine – handy if something goes wrong.Know that I will be around to help – if you get lost you can drop a post on the video ‘Questions and Answers’ below each video and I’ll be sure to get back to you.What are you waiting for?
