“Master the 2D VFX artwork used
when working on large-scale productions"

It might be hard to believe,
but the high-quality motion graphic work
seen on projects for broadcasters and corporations
is usually made with After Effects.

It might seem difficult and time-consuming,
but did you know there's also
a faster, much easier way to create them?

Learn the 2D VFX motion graphics insights
that will help improve the quality of your work
while reducing work time by using common
plugins and a variety of effect application methods.

Hyunji has worked at GIANTSTEP for the past 7 years
and has collaborated with large corporations
such as Samsung, Hyundai Motors, and LG,
as well as broadcasters such as JTBC and tvN.

Hyunji Yoon
Motion Designer

Hi, this is 2D motion graphic designer Hyunji Yoon.

I am currently working as a visual artist at GIANTSTEP,
collaborating with media companies
for TV commercials, viral advertisements,
music videos, movies, shows, and other projects.

I mainly work on creating key visual artwork
as well as motion graphics, and always aim to make
high-quality artwork quickly and easily.

For this class, I chose to provide students
with insights based on the knowledge
I have accumulated from my days
as a student, up until now and other special tips
that I have learned through R&D.

I hope that throughout this lecture, you will be able
to learn about the infinite possibilities of After Effects
in a way that's both fun and efficient.

Is There a Specific Reason Why You Chose This Specific Topic/Themes?

In this lecture, you will learn 2D VFX. 2D VFX has the advantage of being compatible with 3D work as well as motion graphics to perform various tasks. I prepared this lecture so that those who want to add more colorful and fun elements to their videos can learn what kind of work processes they need to go through to get the desired output. Furthermore, with this curriculum, I hope that people will better express themselves in their own artwork which will lead them to fall in love with this field.

How Unique Is This Class?

This class allows you to actively use every effect. The reason for using effects is that it saves time and allows you to create quality work. When you study effects-related tutorials, you tend to become bound by the numbers and follow even the smallest of details. To prevent such difficulties from occurring during this lecture, we provide time to understand the principles of effects and use them in various tasks through repeated exercises.

Who Do You Recommend This Class To?

Those who think that their motion graphics video looks dull or of low quality. Those who have a sense of motion to some extent, but have difficulty finishing their work on time or inefficiently. Those who know how to create 3D artwork, but want to enhance it with 2D-like cartoon effects. Those are who I recommend this class to the most. After you master the basics, if you improve on the details using AE, you will be able to resolve the difficulties you are experiencing.

Finally, Do You Have Anything to Add for the Students?

After Effects is a program that allows you to create stunning and limitless artwork beyond your imagination. In this lecture, I plan to provide my own tips that I have learned while studying on my own, as well as insights I have accumulated while working in the VFX field and since my days as a student, so I hope you all look forward to it.
