Visual Effects Animation

In this course, acquire the fundamental tools for drawing and creating animated visual effects such as explosions, winds, water drops, and ripples. Through exploration, experimentation, and research, the class will present a detailed breakdown of how various visual effect elements work. We’ll look at innovative examples from the history of animation, including recent effects shots created with the aid of a computer simulation, as well as hand-animated effects. Through hands-on exercises, gain an understanding of the process of cleanup, timing, and the use of frame rates. By the end of the course, you will have created an animation of your chosen effect by drawing on a tablet and using After Effects to edit and composite the animation over footage.
