Planetary VFX workshop
Learn how to create your own out-of-this-world video using the industry-standard software tool for video composition, After Effects.
VFX (visual effects) are created by placing a number of visual elements on top of footage and compositing all of the layers together into a final result. In this workshop you’ll learn how to import media files, create a composition using layers, apply edits and effects to layers to create a realistic blend and, finally, export your work to a video file.
