In today's project, we will use After Effects CC to create a 30-second movie trailer. We have been given a starting project with a few pieces already created. Our task is to create the individual pieces that will be used in the final project and arrange them into the final version.
Along the way, we will learn the After Effects interface and how to use the animation and effects systems that will help us make compelling projects.
Before we work on our movie trailer, we will create a simple lower third graphic, commonly used to display text on top of video, such as an interview or establishing shot, playing in the background. We will use this project to learn how to use After Effects.
