Getting Started with After Effects Expressions

Getting Started with After Effects Expressions

ae_expressionsI’m so excited to announce my new course, Getting started with After Effects Expressions which came out on the 20th of February. Even if you’re not comfortable with scripting or coding, you may still want to take a look at After Effects expressions.

About The Course

Expressions are like little scripts that trigger changes to layer properties, and they can save you time, make your work more flexible, and open up new creative possibilities. In this course, motion graphic designer Angie Taylor shows you how to make Adobe After Effects expressions work for you, starting with building expressions with the pick whip. Then she introduces JavaScript-based math expressions, which allow you to adjust timing and movement, and her favorite “no brainer” expressions, such as property linking and connecting camera focus to layers. Plus, discover how to react to sound, play with color, format text, and link 2D and 3D properties.

Topics include:

  • What are expressions?
  • Creating and applying expressions
  • Linking expressions to layers with the pick whip
  • Simplifying expressions with variables
  • Working with JavaScript math functions
  • Creating looping animations
  • Randomizing values
  • Converting expressions to keyframes
  • Creating keyframes from audio with expressions
  • Controlling 2D effects in 3D space
  • Converting color from RGB to HLS
  • Formatting strings and text
