- [Justin] Hi everyone, my name's Justin Odisho
and in this video, I'm gonna go over the basics
and intro to Adobe After Effects.
So I know this program can be very confusing
to a beginner or if it's your first time looking
at the program.
Or maybe if you're just comfortable with Photoshop
or Premiere and you never really got into After Effects.
So I'm gonna try to explain what this all is,
how you can demystify it and what it's all used for anyway.
So you got a whole bunch of stuff popping up here.
Basically, it starts off with a get started menu
and these new updates and from here,
you can open new projects, recent projects.
You actually don't have to create or open anything,
you can actually just close it if you want too
and just pop up with your After Effects window.
So what is After Effects in the first place
and why would you use something like this
in comparison to other video editors like Premiere Pro
or Final Cut, you know, what's the difference?
So the best way that I can try to explain this
to help you understand is After Effects is kind of like
the Photoshop for video.
See instead of being a program like Premiere
or Final Cut of Sony Vegas where you have a timeline
and you can drag clips and videos in order
on the sequence.
After Effects is a compositing and motion graphics
video editing software so that means
you can compose many pieces and layers
on top of one another and you can also create
different motion graphics because it has better
and different unique stronger tools and engines
in those areas like things like the rotoscoping brush,
camera motion tracking, different complex effects.
But let's start with our basic menu.
This is our composition menu by the way, this right here
which you can usually see the preview
in most video editing softwares
and you can open a new composition or drag in clips.
So I've got a folder on the desktop
with a couple video clips in it and for example,
I'm gonna actually highlight these and throw them
in the project media bin which is
on the left hand side here.
So I'm gonna make sure I have it open
and I can actually just throw these clips
in our project media bin and now they're loaded.
We have movie clip 2978 and 2984.
So these clips happen to be 1920 by 1080 which I can see
when I highlight them so if I do just drag one
onto the timeline, it'll create a new composition
based on this footage like it says there.
So now we have a new 1080 by 1920
standard high definition composition
or we could have also went to composition,
new composition in the menu on the top
and set all these settings.
But now that I have the clip here,
you can start to see kind of the basic ways
that After Effects is laid out.
So you have our layers menu and you have a bit of a timeline
but remember, this isn't really working left to right.
It's more so working up to down and stacking
like a composition.
So if I take the other clip that I had
and dragged that on the timeline as well,
you can see we have both of the clips,
one on top of the other, you can't really see
because it goes by layers, you know top is seen
and then the bottom is not so you can hide visibility
and both of these are together.
This little green line shows how long the clip is
so this clip of the flower happens to only be
about 7 seconds whereas the clip of the statues
and water fountain happens to be a little bit longer.
And also notice when I created the composition
just by dragging the clip in, it makes the composition
only as long as that clip automatically
so if you wanted to change that, you could also go
to composition settings and you can see here
the duration is 10 seconds in this case
'cause the clip was 10 seconds
but I could make it 30 seconds and it will be longer.
On the bottom, we can scroll left to right
and see all that new space that we've added.
But what else do we have going on in our menus?
So on the left hand side,
we have the project effect controls.
On this top side here, we have our menu
with tools so the move tool, text tool,
different brushes and rotobrushing which is like
a quick selection tool.
On the right hand side, we also have different menus
like our brushes tool.
If we did have a brush, we could choose what size
and type and paint and color.
We also have different effects and presets
in this menu and you can also access these
in the effects menu so let's say I want to add
an effect onto this clip, what I can do is either use
a preset that's set for me in this right hand side.
So these are all different presets.
Or I can build my own effect out and you notice how
I did need to highlight this layer to get that to be active
and be able to work on it.
So let's say I just want to add a simple blur.
Let's add a gaussian blur, a very basic function
that's in a lot of programs and you should see
once I add this onto the clip, it'll pop up
in our effects control menu or panel for us to adjust.
So each effect has different aspects that you can adjust
on it so this one has blurriness which I can increase.
And it also has blur dimensions so I can go horizontal
and vertical which will give us a soft blur,
just horizontal or just vertical
and these little icons right here are key frames
which you can create animation with.
So if I drop down this menu,
you can see all the different properties
of each layer that you have and do different things
with them so you can see all the effects
that are applied onto here,
right now just the gaussian blur.
You can transform it so the size, the position,
opacity, et cetera.
So you know I can turn the opacity down to 50%
and now we get a interesting blending of these clips.
And let me add a simple key frame here.
So I'm gonna go to the beginning
or wherever I want to start.
I can add an anchor point by clicking on this stopwatch icon
and then I can move over let's say a couple seconds,
make the blurriness go really intense.
And you should see a little diamond is created
and then I can move over even more,
maybe make it go less intense.
So I'll type in 20 and this is just one example
of some sort of creative animation that you can do.
I don't know what type of project you'd be working on
but you can see
we've got the flower getting blurry, less blurry.
I could do the same thing with key framing animation
but that's just basic key framing.
You can look up another tutorial of mine for more
about general key framing principles.
But you can see you can stack many effects
on top of each other and beyond just your basic blurs,
After Effects has some really interesting and powerful tools
that are not present in your basic non linear editors
like Premiere Pro or Final Cut so things like CC Burn Film
or just random ones like this, I'll show you for example,
are much more complex in function
than a lot of the stuff you'll find in other places.
So you see this one kind of gives it
a burned paper animation which the same thing
I showed you about key frames earlier,
you can add the stopwatch diamonds and make it go
from 0 to 100 to act as a cool transition.
You can also adjust different things about this
but you can see it stacks the effects together.
You can also drag effects and rearrange
the positioning of them so if I put the blur
after the burn, you see everything gets blurry
but if I put the burn after the blur,
then the burn is still solid.
So keep that in mind.
Some more things to consider in After Effects
are that you can create clean text and motion graphics.
So let me go to composition, new composition
to start a new 1920 by 1080 black 30 second composition
and it'll open in a different composition menu
so this is another thing to keep in mind.
You can have many different compositions open
at the same time and kind of play off of one another
and they're all open in tabs down here,
kind of like tabs on an internet browser.
So in this new composition, I don't have to drag any clips
or anything in but you notice that you still have
the same project menu so you can have
many different compositions in the same project
and have the same media throughout and the compositions
actually pop up as a media object as well
but I can click on the text tool, for example,
click there and add text and move this around.
So now you have a text layer that pops up
and you still have all the same properties
on the text from adjusting the position,
opacity, things like that.
And just to show you a quick example,
let's go to the effects and presets menu
that we pointed out earlier and let's look
for some animation presets for text
and we can see there's actually a lot of really cool
built in presets so for example,
we can do animating in and let's just choose
a fun one here, spin by character.
So I can just click and drag this right on
to this text object and you can see it places two key frames
two seconds in by default since this isn't animate in
and if I drop that down, you can see the animator
and all the different things but if I press play,
it's kind of cheesy looking but there's a lot of cool
different ones that you can play around with.
Presets are always kind of cheesy looking
but here's a cool one, typewriter.
I can click and drag that on
it'll create the key frames from the point
that my timeline cursor was on currently
so this'll add the text letter by letter
like a typewriter and you can also go into
the effects control of this actual text,
the dropdown, and adjust these different
animation properties.
You can also add shape layers so if I go to layer,
new, shape layer, I can create things
either with the rectangle, ellipse, star, whatever.
So I can create rectangles and then I can use
After Effects motion and key framing tools
to create animations on these as well
so this is a cool way that you can create lower thirds
where things might smoothly pop in and out,
reveal text and all that.
So I have different individual tutorials,
project by project, little quick videos for you
to check out if you want to look at creating
a lower third or quick selecting an object
or learning about camera tracking
and different text animation.
I don't want to try to fit those all in at once
but hopefully you're seeing a little bit
of the different tools and menus
and you can see the basics of it.
We've got a preview menu right here in the middle.
We've got a layer menu, different tabs
of different compositions if we want.
Our project media here which is we can drag
and drop things from our desktop wherever.
This is where we can keep all of our media to work with.
Our basic timeline, which we want to be looking at
from a top to bottom standpoint rather than a left
to right, yes you can build things out left to right
but it's not really made for that,
it's a lot less intuitive to be telling stories
with this rather than making video compositions.
So let's say we want to export our project or save it,
you can always go to file, save, it'll save
your After Effects project but we can also go
to export, add to render queue.
You can see that render queue that's been open
as a tab this whole tab, it will add whatever we had sent
to the queue and from here, you can render it.
So first you can choose to output it anywhere
on your desktop or whatever folder you want,
you can choose what settings you want in the output module.
So this is actually where you can get into exporting
transparent things in Adobe After Effects
especially for motion graphics, you can choose what channels
get outputted, red, green, blue, alpha,
red, green, blue and alpha, et cetera,
that's great for exporting lower thirds
or different overlays and templates.
You can also choose the actual render settings
which you get a lot of good presets to use here.
It depends on what you're trying to use.
You can see this one is just 1920 by 1080,
it's just reading from my original video clip
and kind of outputting it the best from there.
But once you click render, it'll actually render out
all the different animations, key frames
and different things you did in your timeline
and once this blue bar fills up,
it'll make this really cool noise, probably my favorite
sound effect ever is that render noise in After Effects
and you can find the finished project wherever
you exported it or chose to output it to.
So this has been a very basic introduction
to After Effects, there's so many more tools
and capabilities that I didn't have a chance
to get into in this 'cause I wanted to keep it real simple
but hopefully you can see how the basic layout works.
It's not so scary anymore.
You've just got the main things in the middle,
your timeline, your layers, your different dropdowns
and key frames and menus, your project media
and all your tools and files and menus.
So check out my channel for project by project
different things like camera tracking,
the more in depth on key frames and difference
between After Effects and Premiere Pro and more in depth
how to work in between the two.
But if you guys enjoyed this video,
definitely subscribe to my channel below.
I've got a video like this for intro to Photoshop
and intro to Premiere Pro if you're just starting there
and you want a basic rundown of those programs.
