The fastest, easiest, most comprehensive way to learn Adobe After Effects 7!

Classroom in a Book, the best-selling series of hands-on software training workbooks, helps you learn the features of Adobe software quickly and easily. Classroom in a Book offers what no other book or training program does--an official training series from Adobe Systems Incorporated, developed with the support of Adobe product experts.

Adobe After Effects 7.0 Classroom in a Book contains eleven lessons and a bonus DVD with lesson files. The book covers the basics of learning Adobe After Effects, and countless tips and techniques to help you quickly become an After Effects artist. You'll get thorough training in digital video effects and production as well as learn about After Effects 7.0's new features, including motion tracking, powerful animation and keyframing controls, HDR color support, network rendering, and more. You can follow the book from start to finish or choose only those lessons that interest you.

Synopsis:

Tired of having your creative process held up as you wait for your computer to "think" (i.e., render)? Wait no longer! Whether you're a broadcast pro, marketing specialist, or Web designer, if you work with video, you'll welcome the dramatically accelerated 2D and 3D rendering afforded by the brand-new After Effects 6.0 ($699, Standard Edition; $999, Professional Edition). Here to help you dive right into Adobe's motion-graphics and effects powerhouse is Adobe After Effects 6.0 Classroom in a Book. The team at Adobe has thoroughly revised the best-selling previous edition to cover all that's new in this upgrade. Designed around a single complex project that's broken down into manageable lessons, this book-and-CD package mimics a real-world workflow--but one you tackle at your own pace! The CD contains all the lesson files needed to complete the lessons.
