We definitely recommend that you have some After Effects experience before you take any of our Bootcamp courses. For Animation Bootcamp, you don't need to be an expert, but we want you to be comfortable using the software and know the basics of setting keyframes, setting type, parenting, alpha mattes, and shape layers.

If you're not there yet or brand new to After Effects, you'll want to check out After Effects Kickstart! This course was created with beginners in mind and will take you from keyframe one to animating a short explainer video in six knowledge-packed weeks. Plus, when you finish you'll be ready to take on Animation Bootcamp.
