Experience: Working with After Effects for a Photo-Video Slideshow

At the end of 2013, I worked on a :60 promo video for a client*. I had a direction in mind that I wanted to go and Motion Array had a template that seemed to fit.

The Photo Show template was a great jumping off point for me. This was my first real foray into using After Effects in this way. It is quite complex and the template was very helpful in getting me over the hurdles of creating the looks.

I found it tedious but easy to work through the layers, adjust the time, delete some layers, adjust the keyframes… etc.

I don’t know if I’m at the point in After Effects that I could create anything more than titles in it on my own. But, I do really enjoy using it. So, looking for more in the future.
