Breakfast! The fuel for a day full of activities and challenges...like animating this coffee set!

About this course

On this course, you’ll learn how to animate lines and shapes on Adobe After Effects. We’re going to create a simple illustration, and then we’re going to animate it!

This is perfect for adding some extra flair to any illustration while also adding a new skill to your portfolio.

What project are we going to develop?

We're going to create a simple looping animation of a set of different elements related to coffee (a coffee mug, a coffee pot and a cupcake). It’s meant to work as an animated GIF.

Who’s this course for? Requirements

I'll be teaching you some basic and intermediate aspects of After Effects, so any basic knowledge of this software is recommended, but it’s not essential.

The same thing applies to Adobe Illustrator; you can jump into this course even if you don’t have any experience with it, but some basic knowledge is recommended.

You'll need a copy of Adobe After Effects CC and Adobe Illustrator CC for this course.

Also, on the final step, we’ll be using Adobe Photoshop CC to export the animation as a GIF, but this is entirely optional.
