About this course

Have you ever wondered how you could create simple loading animations for your projects? On this course I'll teach you how to create simple but appealing loading animations in Adobe After Effects, so you can export them as videos or image sequences and apply them in your next project.

The course will be divided into several lessons, each showing you how to create a unique animation so you can easily follow along.

What project are we going to develop?

On this course we will create eight different loading animations. We will create everything using basic shapes and simple animation principles. While I will be creating everything using ellipses you could use your own artwork or another shape to create your own variations to apply to your own design.

Practice each concept as you follow along so you can understand what's behind each animation principle.

Who's this course for? Requirements

For this course you don't need any previous skills, the concepts are explained easily so you can follow along. However, if you want to get the most out of this course it is recommended that you have a little bit of experience using the software so you can move around without any problems. 

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