You’ve heard, many times, that expressions can save you time in After Effects — but it can be hard to know just how to get started. The good news is that it can be as easy as a click-and-drag to get started. Expressions can drive everything in After Effects from parenting, to loading external data, to creating faster workflows with effect controls — and the best part is that there are ways to achieve this without writing any code! Join us in this inspiring session where we’ll learn to use Expression Controls, external data sources, and parenting techniques that can be set up without writing a single line of code. What you’ll learn:

  • Expression Control Effects
  • Advanced parenting techniques
  • Working with data from Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets
  • Get comfortable with Master Properties
  • How to work with other people’s expressions
