Introduction to After Effects

Our teacher this time, Henrik Bjerregaard Clausen took us through the basics of Adobe After Effects.

Our first assignment was to put our cleaned and colored bird animations in a more complete sequence and to incorporate backgrounds and different After Effects elements.

After that we did a fun little exercise based on learning the masking function mostly. We had to make a scene featuring a UFO flying behind an element, and an intro fit to start it off as a real movie, but other than that we had pretty free reigns. As you can see I went a little Michael Bay-crazy.
