   I'm happy to tell you that our funny video lessons on animation dedicated to the Year of the Rooster have turned into a whole new interesting animation project - we'll call it Chicken Adventure Time. In this project we will use all our footage with chickens to make an interesting cartoon about the adventures of the chicken family. In this cartoon there will be many funny little animals, a lot of interesting stories on the most pressing topics of our time, and of course there will be Trump and Putin and many other glamorous characters. 

   All this and much more you will find in our free Udemy Course "Basic Animation in Adobe After Effects".

   I always liked to make satirical cartoons on political topics with my students. This very well stimulates students to create their own animation. But making satirical cartoons about Putin in Russia is becoming an increasingly risky occupation. Besides, Trump seems to me a much more promising character in terms of political satire. So I decided to switch to Trump in my lessons. Well, Putin, too, will be somewhere on the background. Sweet couple.
   If we are going to make satirical cartoons about the most urgent problems of our time, we certainly cannot do without leaders of world powers. We already have Putin. Today I made Trumps model. How do you like my Trump? Is not he a cutie? Who wants to voice Trump?
Subscribe to our free Udemy course "Basic Animation in Adobe After Effects" and we will do cartoons together! You can find model of Trump in downloads of my course.

  In this new series of video tutorials I want to try “gaming technique” training – to transform study into an exciting game. It is simply amazing how many dedicated and talented people gathered at Skillshare - I propose to use these talents to create our own Skillshare Animation Studio. Let us all together make cartoons about what we're doing on Skillshare and how wonderful it is - to live each day learning something new.

   

   Animation studio is good because everyone here can find application to his talent. If you are author and write stories, you can write scripts and dialogues for our cartoons. Artists can create characters for animation and scenery. Actors - to engage in voicing of characters, musicians - create musical accompaniment. And of course we’ll need animators, to breathe life into our characters.

   To animate, in my opinion, may everybody. To teach everyone this absolutely necessary skill, we have created a series of exciting and easy to understand lessons on animation in the Adobe After Effects program, which will allow you to quickly and easily master the basic skills necessary to make animation, and begin to animate. We invite everybody to participate in the work of our animation studio - here everyone will find something occupation to his taste. Write to us at community section and offer your ideas, sign up for our classes, create your projects and let's make cartoons!

   All our video tutorials you will find in the "Video Lessons" section of the main menu.

  Recently I discovered SkillShare.com - a site dedicated to online training. On this site gathered thousands of passionate people for whom daily acquiring of new knowledge and skills is a vital necessity. They watch video tutorials, do themselves their own video tutorials and every day learn something new. But this is exactly our passion too! Our motto is - Not a day without new knowledge! So I decided to create my own class on SkillShare. Especially since we already have excellent tutorials on creating animation in Adobe After Effects with Eric Cartman as a guest star. So I created my own class and even got some students. Here is the link to my class on SkillShare. And now I started a new series of video lessons with new characters and a more advanced level. So anyone interested - join. We’ll make video lessons and cartoons together and may even earn some money. Here is the first lessons of my new series on creating animation in Adobe After Effects.

   Download to your computer distributive of Adobe After Effects 7.0 (Download link) and unpack. You will get a folder “Adobe.After.Effects.v7.0.Pro”.

   Before you begin to install After Effects, you need to generate a serial number for it: Run the keygen located in the “Crack” subdirectory of “Adobe.After.Effects.v7.0.Pro” folder. In the top selection box, select “Adobe After Effects 7.0 Professional”. Generate a serial number, which you need for installation. (You can install program as “Trial version”, but there can be problems with activation. It is better to install entering serial number).

   Now you can proceed directly to the installation of After Effects: Go to the folder “Adobe.After.Effects.v7.0.Pro” and run Setup. Follow the instructions. When the program asks for serial number, use the one that you generated using keygen.

   After installation, when you first start the program, it needs to be activated. To do this, click in the activation window "Other activation options". In the window that opens, choose the method of activation "Other the telephone". Click OK. Opens window of activation by phone. Copy in it Activation Number and insert it into Keegan Request Code box. Generate Answer Code. This is you code for activation. Insert it into the empty boxes and click Activate.

   Done.

   Note: Some antiviruses want to kill Crack. You have to do something to solve this problem.

   Known bugs:  On some systems After Effects 7 have shown strange bug - Import window refuses to work properly. E.e. you want to import any files, try to open the Import window, but instead the program closes with an error message. This bag is easy to get around – you can work not using import window at all, it is enough to use instead The Windows window. Just find the files you need in Windows window and mouse drag them directly on the project panel of After Effects.
