After Effects Training is not boring or complicated!

Best of all, you do not need to know anything about After Effects. Our Training starts at the very beginning. We give you the right foundation to be able to start creating your own motion graphics and compositing by teaching you real world skills, and giving you a thorough understanding of how to get the best out of After Effects.

You'll be in a small class full of people just like you, and your guide will be one of our industry experienced and passionate instructors who know how to make learning After Effects practical and memorable.

You will have a chance to import video, add other graphics elements, create titles, remap time and add effects layers. After Effects has loads of useful presets, and it even works with 3D objects you can easily import from a variety of sources.

Your friendly instructor will help you step by step as you create actual projects, and use the tools and effects in After Effects.



This After Effects training is for people who have never used the program before. You don't need any previous video experience either.


BYOL run customised in-house training sessions only. The duration is typically 1-2 days but we will work with you to find the most appropriate timing.

More course information.

Adobe After Effects CC has been the mainstay for motion graphics in TV and video for many years. Bring Your Own Laptop has the best training in Sydney to learn how to take on the post production world with After Effects!

For an online training option visit our motion graphics course using After Effects+

If you have anything to do with video, at some point you are going to perform keying, tracking, compositing or animation. After Effects was the original, and is still considered the gold standard for all these and a serious number of other tasks that take your video from ‘straight cuts’ to ‘professionally finished.’

Imagine being able to work on green screen material with one of the most widely regarded tools in the post production world. How about slowing down a clip with software that fills in the missing frames? Need 3D titles that easily animate? What about particle animations like explosions or a million stars to fill your screen? How about nailing that colour correction for your next video so it has the ‘Hollywood look?’

Not only is After Effects the industry standard, it’s one of the most affordable and powerful choices with loads of third party plugins, support for dozens of formats and types of media (including 3D objects) and it’s a cornerstone of video post and motion graphics. The skills you acquire in learning After Effects CC will be with you in many other areas of video and motion design.

Adobe After Effects CC is an interconnected part of Adobe’s complete video tools, behaving a lot like Photoshop, only with video. It’s got tools that many user haven’t even found yet, and few have pushed the edge of its fantastic capabilities. So, yes, it can be a bit intimidating if you don’t have the right training to begin to unlock the power of After Effects.




If you’re in Sydney, Australia, and you want to get some seriously hands on and understandable training (no dusty manuals to fear) Bring Your Own Laptop has what you need.

Our classes are the perfect place to ask questions so that you never feel left behind. We take you step by step from the beginning, and make sure you understand as you go. Interactivity is a vital part of what we offer, and that’s what makes us better than online training – you get answers right then and there. And if it’s not working, you have the real support to find the solution as you go. No waiting for someone to guess what went wrong. Real training with real people gets you a real result.

You also get our custom created take home notes (yep, we print them for you) that perfectly match the course so you have extra help remembering. But we know you will keep having new questions, so we give you the instructor’s direct email so you can get the help you need for a whole year after your training. Still not quite sure you’ll take it all in? No problems, we understand, and you can retake your course within a year for free! You read that right. We want to make sure you get as much as possible out of your After Effects CC training.

Bring Your Own Laptop’s Sydney training will make it as easy as possible – just bring your own laptop with the latest version of After Effects CC installed. (You can get a free trial download at www.adobe.com/products/aftereffects.html). If you don’t have a laptop, we’ll even loan you one for the course.

Class sizes are kept small, and training is designed to be as practical as possible – we won’t put you to sleep with endless theory. We want you actually using After Effects. We know that’s the best way to get you started, and the easiest way for you to remember what you learn.

And Bring Your Own Laptop keeps up with the trends at Adobe – we make sure our After Effects CC training is based on the latest version so that you’re not missing out on everything After Effects and Adobe have to offer.

Don’t kill yourself trying to keep up with that 13 Year Old’s YouTube ‘tutorial.’ And forget feeling like a ‘noob’ (newbie) in a room full of ‘experts.’ We make training for real people to use in the real world. And we remember to start from the beginning so there are no gaps in your knowledge.

So, if turning videos into elaborate and well finished masterpieces is in your future, that future begins by calling Bring Your Own Laptop’s friendly staff and booking our Sydney After Effects CC training today!
