Make Aesthetic Videos With
Just the Basics

Is being good at dealing with position, rotation, and scale really enough? By practicing the basics, you can learn how to streamline the process by using less functions while still creating videos that look as good as ones that use plug-ins.

What Is the Difference Between This Class and Other Classes?

My class provides students with a quick yet intensive instruction that covers the most essential functions used in the real-world. I guide you in making aesthetic examples by yourself, so that you can familiarize yourself with the process. I don't think the best answer is to go through all the boring functions, even ones you'll never use, or a lecture where you just superficially follow examples.

After Learning the After Effects Tool, What Can I Use It For?

After Effects is undoubtedly the most used tool in the field of motion graphics. For the majority of companies you'll work in as a motion graphic designer, you are most likely going to use After Effects. For collaborating on-the-job, After Effects is definitely the most useful program.

Is There Anything You Want to Say to Prospective Motion Graphic Designers?

Of course, it would be nice to know all the features of a tool to implement what you want to express, but I'd like to point out that you don't have to master all of them. This is because it is enough to learn the essential functions first and remember the keywords so you can find additional functions whenever you need them.

What Do You Think Is the Most Important Attitude That Motion Graphics Designers Need to Have?

It's about taking responsibility for your work. I believe that we should try to meet our deadlines and always do more than just produce consistent quality. There may be times when you have to compromise depending on the situation, but I want you to become a designer who makes an effort to produce the best possible quality.

What Are You Going to Cover in Your Lectures?

I plan to quickly summarize essential functions and provide insights for using After Effects. I want to pass on the knowledge I've acquired through extensive experience, in a way that makes it easy and fun to create aesthetic 2D motion graphic videos like the ones we often see on social media. In addition, I plan to go over an example which applies 2D motion graphics & cel animation—which many people are interested in.
