Adobe CC for Visual Effects (CSFX 110)

Visual effects enhance a story by manipulating on-screen imagery, or bringing otherwise-impossible or impractical scenes to life. This introductory, technique-focused course explores the process of integrating computer generated graphics with live-action footage for filmmaking and video production. With an emphasis on fundamentals of compositing and colour correction, you will use industry-standard tools including Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro to develop skills and techniques used in visual effects and post-production pipelines.
