OVERVIEW

Learn After Effects Expressions 1.1 course is heavily focused on the basics of Expressions. Understanding the core of Expressions will give you a very strong foundation to build on. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to be great at math and you don’t need to know everything about Expressions in order to be good at them. Just like you don’t need to know everything about a car to be a good driver. You just have to know the basics and for everything else, we have tools and resources to lean on.

We will start by briefly going over the differences between Expressions and Scripting.

We’ll examine different tools and resources inside After Effects that are very helpful when working with Expressions.

We’ll go over Expression Controls Effects and how they can be used with Expressions.

We’ll share some of our favorite free online resources that you can use as references.

Once we are familiar with the tools inside After Effects, we’ll dive deep into the language of Expressions, which is JavaScript. Don’t worry, it’s not that scary. We’ll guide you through the basics of JavaScript to get you up and running.

Next, we’re going to apply our newly gained coding knowledge by creating a real-world project. We’ll create a Modular Lower Third with advanced settings completely from scratch. We’ll also learn how to convert it into a Motion Graphics Template to use in Premiere Pro.
We’ll wrap everything up by introducing you to more methods and practical examples.

By the end of this course, you will have a strong foundation on how Expressions work inside After Effects.

Release 1.1

The release of the brand new version of the course is packed with some really cool new techniques. In particular, you’ll learn how to make a modular lower third from scratch and how to rig it using Expressions.

Release 1.0

In this course, you’ll learn about the basic building blocks of expressions, including number and string comparisons, and logical operators. You’ll also learn how to use functions to create more robust expressions with nested conditions. Finally, you’ll dig into variable controls–how to make your expressions respond to changes in variables and different numbers of input arguments.
