Master the digital composition process to give your work a professional finish
When creating an animation, the composition process —although oftentimes overlooked—is an essential part of the production process, and mastering this process allows for a highly professional finish in your 3D animations.
Roberto Puig—motion graphics artist with over 15 years of experience—has developed and directed projects for clients such as CBC Sports, BBC Entertainment, Discovery Networks, Cbeebies, and many more. In this course, he teaches alongside other specialized artists from the Don Porfirio studio, how to reach a higher visual quality through essential techniques, to give stunning finishing touches using Adobe After Effects.
See the importance of the rendering process from 3ds Max or any other 3D animation software that will enable you to have more control over the post-production of elements previously animated, when it comes to working on After Effects.
What will you learn in this online course?
Start off by getting to know Roberto Puig, his professional experience, his most important projects, the studios he’s collaborated with, and the work that he develops today as founder and creative director of a team of 2D and 3D animators at his studio Don Porfirio.
Continue by understanding the importance of digital composition in the production pipeline for a 3D animation or motion graphics piece and the value that it can bring to the project.
Delve into the world of Autodesk 3ds Max to analyze a previously constructed animated scene that you will work on throughout the course. Plan the best way to break up your scene in several steps and renders with the aim to export the necessary elements to have full control over the post-production and final stages on Adobe After Effects.
Then, Roberto shares some of his methods, advice, and tips when working on After Effects to ensure a professional look when working on an animation piece, to create high-quality productions and visual impact in your composition.
As you finish this course, you will have mastered the entire process and digital techniques to create high-quality professional 3D animation scenes.
