This is the third part in my 3-part Dive Into After Effects series. Check out parts 1 & 2 if you haven't already done so. I created this series to make learning how to use After Effects as easy as possible.
You learn by doing.
In the Dive Into After Effects series, you'll follow along and work on your own project while learning. In this course, we'll create our own flat animation buildup - a popular style of animations you see in commercials, television shows, and movies today.
