The After Effects CC 2017: Make Professional Lower Thirds Titles Course!

Adding lower thirds titles to an edit will increase the production value of the video, but creating professional looking lower thirds that animate with multiple layers is very difficult to do in programs like Premiere Pro, or other editing programs. Utilizing masking techniques inside Adobe After Effects can create impressive looking, high quality titles that will take your video edits to the next level. You will learn some of the same techniques used in broadcast television commercials and large budget web content.

This course will start off by walking you through the basics of After Effects to bring you up to speed, this will include a quick overview of the various panel windows, as well as instruction on creating a basic lower thirds graphic, to teach you the fundamentals. From there, over several lessons, we’ll walk you through how to create 2 additional professional and dynamic looking lower thirds titles, using 2 different methods.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Create Professional Lower Thirds Titles in After Effects CC
  • Export your finished lower thirds with an alpha channel so that you can effectively overlay your rendered title to see the footage below
  • Create and control text layers, solid layers, shape layers, masks and more
  • Animate keyframes to produce modern looking dynamic motion graphic name titles
  • Masking techniques to hide and reveal layers
  • How to create HD and 4k compositions and export

Your instructor for this course is Will Bartlett. He has been using After Effects since 2006 for commercials, feature films, and animated creative projects. He is the founder of an established video production company in Toronto Canada, and has been the Visual Effects Supervisor and Lead Visual Effects Artist on hundreds of projects including feature films and television commercials.
