Lesson #1

Get prepared for the course

Download the main course folder, organize project files in specified folders, and use recommended websites for free photo assets to prepare for animation in Photoshop.

Lesson #2

The power of AI in Photoshop 

In this lesson, we learn to use Photoshop's AI features and selection techniques to separate and prepare a photo's objects for animation, dividing them into foreground, midground, and background layers for a 3D effect, and save the file for further work in After Effects.

Lesson #3

Dive into After Effects and prepare the scene for animation

In this lesson, we set up After Effects for a smooth workflow, import our Photoshop file as a composition, organize each layer into separate precomps, and prepare the project for animation, ensuring all preferences and settings are correctly adjusted.

Lesson #4

Creating a unique Parallax effect

In this lesson, we enhance our animated poster with a parallax effect to add depth and a 3D feel. We begin by converting 2D layers into 3D layers and setting up a camera. We then adjust the camera and layer positions to create a realistic 3D road.

Lesson #5

Camera animation

In this lesson, you’ll learn how to animate the camera by separating position axes and creating keyframes for smooth movement, enhance your scene with depth of field by adjusting the focus to the car using expressions, and animate the aperture for dynamic blurriness.

Lesson #6

Color Correction techniques

In this lesson, you'll learn to enhance your animated poster using basic but very useful color correction techniques.

Lesson #5

Stretched Text Animation

In this lesson, you'll learn to enhance your animation using basic elements like shape and text layers, creating a dynamic stretch effect for text using path keyframes, adjusting timing offsets for engaging motion, and adding a flashlight effect to the car using shape layers with effects for a realistic look.

Lesson #8

Improve the animation and render the final piece

In the final part of the course, you learned to refine animation by converting keyframes to easy ease, adjusting velocities for smooth motion, and optimizing rendering settings for professional output.
