Adobe After Effects Tutorial: Editing for Beginners

Hey everyone! Welcome to my first tutorial, I apologise in advance for anything that’s unclear or anything that has been missed out, but please do utilise the pause button if it is too quick paced.

This is a very BASIC tutorial, meaning I have only covered topics such as important to know features, how to import/export, how to make a composition, how to cut/adjust clips and syncing.

The method I have shown with syncing and cutting is how I do it, a bit in a different order but fairly the same, so you do NOT have to do it this way, my main purpose was to show you how After Effects works.

Tutorials on how to create transitions, effects, how to mask etc. will be coming within the near future, thank you for your patience.

I tried downloading svp for free but no matter what I could never successfully run it because it said svp isn’t supported with os mac or sum bs, then I tried to see if people could use AE on mac and I found a legit video where you can download it for free, as a mac user it worked perfectly ( ) that’s the link for free AE it’s legit

Thank you so much. People are hating for nothing, they just need to follow the stuff and just read everything.

This was actually so helpful haha

Lydia c. says:

I was wondering (i’m really new to this), but are you able to import a video that already has the clips together in a video and the music, but are you able to cut it up into chunks without deleting anything so you can make transitions and stuff?
