After Effects

Turn your ideas into animated projects.

The intensive After Effects course offered by RUFA is dedicated to those who want to create motion graphics and special effects respecting the professional standards of video production. Integration with other Adobe Creative Suite software ensures perfect compatibility with both Illustrator vector graphics and more complex bitmap effects (such as Photoshop layer styles and video layers).

During the course you will learn to master the software and to process a movie through text animations, vector graphics (created directly with After Effects, with Adobe Flash or Adobe Premiere), bitmap graphics, (Adobe Photoshop images and effects) and audio (with Adobe Soundbooth).

Students will have hundreds of possibilities and presets to create perfectly controllable animations and special effects, for example by masking a part of the video and / or using the ‘Puppet’ tool to maneuver the created effects with ease and precision.

At the end of the course, a certificate of attendance is issued, against the presence of at least 12 of the 15 lessons provided, for a possible recognition of 2 CFU.
