Motion Beast

Release date:2019

Duration:12 h 15 m

Author:Motion Design School

Skill level:Beginner


Exercise files:Yes

The course will help you overcome AE-related barriers and fears which are standing between you and the wonderful world of animation and motion design

After Effects is hard to grasp

Confusing tools that don’t behave the way they should. All those new hotkeys, a brush that will not draw, let alone pixel perfect animation.

While working on wonderful animations we will go through all AE tools and panels step by step. All that to make sure you know what each hotkey stands for and how to finally make this damn brush draw

Learning on Youtube is tedious

There are tons of youtube tutorials teaching to make one or another effect. But it’s far from certain that it will become the best solution for your problem. There is not much use in such learning and it’s hardly structured.

We’ve developed a structured course that will make you certain of what tools to use for each case in your projects.

Animations aren’t smooth enough

You’ve tried to recreate other artists’ work, but your animation still looks laggy and far from smooth? Usually, that’s the theory behind the animation that is missing.

On this course, we pay special attention to Disney’s animation movement principles that can bring you closer to that desired smoothness.

Projects are too complex

You’ve just finished a huge project but you have a hard time with any request for subtle changes? It’s hard to work on a project that doesn’t have a system in it.

Starting from the first day we will steadily increase complexity and bring a systematic approach to both small and big projects.

Scripts & expressions are terrifying

AE is complicated enough, and there are also scripts and expressions. Making an animation manually takes loads of time. Instead, you can learn a few lines of code, create a few variables and your progress will skyrocket!

You will not only learn how to make expressions, but you will also get some top-notch lifesaving scripts developed by us to help you.

It’s too time consuming

Maybe you just avoid animations because you feel like you will waste a lot of time without learning much? Or you tried learning animation and realized that creating something worthwhile will take weeks or even months?

In Motion Beast course you will see your progress right at the very first classes, which will save you loads of time when working on your future projects.

Is this course for me?

We created this course with motion designers and illustrators on our mind, but we’ve received positive feedback from a very broad audience. If you feel the desire to make smooth animations — we are here for you.

Beginners and advanced motion designers

If you are only starting your journey or you are already in the industry and looking for a solid bullshit-free theoretical foundation and up-to-date practice — you are in the right place.

Illustrators and people of art

Looking for ways to make your art look more alive? Tired of static images? Imagine what you can achieve if you learn how to animate your illustrations.

Graphic and User Interface designers

We will give you the foundation that will help you animate any interface or branded graphics. No more templates and boring motionless projects!

Videographers and video industry specialists

Although we do not focus on video production, montage or compositing, we give a solid foundation for motion design. With it you can add stylish transitions, captions, text animations and other useful tricks.

Marketing experts and social media managers

Video is the cornerstone of marketing. Tired of waiting for designers to create a simple square video with flying text for Facebook? You will be surprised how easily you can make one on your own.

Bloggers, entrepreneurs and self-development enthusiasts

Whether you run your online business, host webinars or just search for your future profession, having knowledge of how to make whatever you do attractive is a must-have.

What will I learn in a Motion Beast course?

Everything from After Effects basics to character rigging and frame by frame animation. We are constantly improving our curriculum with each new feedback from our students to make it even better and broader.

    I’m very grateful about your website, and having a notification of your telegram channel makes my heart beats

  9. Hi Strawberry. First of all thanks a lot for the effort you’ve put into this, really.

    Second thing, when I click on any of the links, it says “Database Error:
    Failed connecting to the database with the supplied connection details. Please check the details are correct and your MySQL user has permissions to access this database.”

    Is it because the server or something or because me?


  10. Hey great job on this motion beast…
    I tried to extract the zipped file and its read path not specified, how can I fix this I used winrar to extract or which should I use to extract project files and html …
    Thanks great job again

    • The only way I’ve found is opening the .html file whit the notepad, copy de code and paste it into Dreamweaver, you can already see the live version of the code and download all the stuff related to the lesson searching for the links in the code. Hope it works for you! Happy learning.
