Most of us use about a fifth of After Effects power. Some of the effects included in the software may look useful or seem to do nothing. But there are many hidden treasures and obscure tools that can help you solve color problems and improve your composition.


In this session you learn how to use effects that most users ignore or don’t understand to create impressive distortions, simulations, fluids and time games.
