After Effects

Adobe After Effects is primarily used for creating motion graphics and visual effects. After Effects allows users to animate, alter and create media in 2D and 3D space, using various built-in tools and third party plug-ins. Users will learn to use these tools, as well as how to control variables to adjust for aspects such as line of sight and angle of observation.

Workshop Registration

If the date for which you want to register does not appear, that session is not available yet. Registration opens 4 weeks prior to the event date. In the meantime, we encourage you to check out available online training options and Skillsoft. The library also offers a variety of training workshops, as does the ODCS.

If no classes are listed here, there are no more of these open-enrollment sessions scheduled this semester.  Fortunately, all is not lost.  Faculty members can still schedule custom technology workshops for groups of eight or more people.  Also, faculty are welcome to get help for themselves by scheduling individual or small group appointments with Exchange instructional designers.  If these opportunities interest you, please contact the Exchange at or 404-413-4700.  And, as always, all Georgia State community members can access 24/7 online training at
