About this course

Have you ever wanted to know how to create a 3D-looking animation of planet Earth in Adobe After Effects? On this course I will teach you how to create one from scratch, using very helpful tips and tricks.

The course will be divided in several lessons, each showing how to create and set up the different parts of the process, so you can easily follow along, as well as practice the concepts you are learning.

What are we going to develop?

On this course we are going to create a 3D-looking animation of the space. I will be creating an animation based on travel and the planet Earth, but feel free to pick your own theme and use the same process.

Practice each concept as you follow along, as well as all the helpful tips and tricks that will be shown so you can understand the steps I follow.

Who's this course for? Requirements

For this course it is recommended that you have a base knowledge on After Effects so you can make the most of it. Nevertheless, all the concepts are explained several times so even if you are new to the software, you can also learn all the techniques.

We will be using Adobe After Effects CC, but if you use a previous version there shouldn't be any mayor problems. While the layout may be different, the changes shouldn't impact the concepts behind each lesson.
