Adobe After Effects, overview and some basic functions - video tutorial

Hey, in today's video tutorial I will present the basics of Adobe After Effects. This is the best program for creating audio-visual products are widely used by those who work in the field. With the help of After Effects can make various very good color correction on some filming and also can add pretty nice effects. As for the menus, they are highly structured but at first glance the program with a friendly interface can not really seem like a jungle of menus and options, although it is not.
I will try the tutorials that make them about the program to present best practices for editing / creating compositions.
Today we will discuss the main functions of the program menu and then we will try to create a text animation using keyframe sites and finally we find out what is and what can be done with a mask.

  4. Congratulations for your tutorials, it's a good initiative with video editing tutorials, considering that we don't have much in Romania, and it's good that you finished on the site! 🙂 Only After Effects is a compositing program, it is not very used to create audio visual productions as Premiere Rro is used. Speaking of the premiere, Cristi also mentioned this program earlier. I repeat: Very good initiative! 🙂

  5. Very good tutorial, bravo Alexander. Keep up the good work, expect more tutorials

  6. Hello Cristian,

    Not related to the tutorial, I know you talked about tablets and I want to ask you a question: what tablet grandparents can buy with a budget exceeding £ 500?

    Thank you very much.

  10. Congratulations and keep going, I would be interested myself some advice on putting movies on dvd, if you make a great movie do not read it more they would have recommended a crappy program that makes menu with chapters and how to do ? eg a wedding dvd.

  11. I have saved a minute cutscene 2 the result: 20GB

  12. Oh brothers tell me how to make my an intro.
    This Gen or that
    A site without photoshop software or Windows Movie Maker or something but accept and so I give you a video to watch it.
    Or I would really appreciate if Videotutorial a tutorial on how to create your intro and just as they start every tutorial

    • Alexandru Serban said

      Hi. If I understood correctly, "accept" a tutorial in Photoshop or in windows movie make about how to make one of the intros you gave us. If that's what you meant, I advise you not to start working on intros 3D. In photoshop (photo editing program) and movie maker you can not do such a thing. In addition I do not think I will do tutorials on how to make a certain intro because that would not help you at all (if you really want to learn this program).

  13. So I set the DVD in the best quality and honest look Worse, if you leave ful hd formats is very high, would interest me is the most appropriate format for a good quality but not for large files like DVD does not read them. March interest a program that is used by those who do weddings, which breaks down your footage into smaller files for DVD, I used use pinochle and etc but when you format dvd quality is pretty whack.

  14. Very useful. Thanks
