    After Effects Online Meeting Chat Prior to the Training

    We usually organise an online meeting prior to the training course to discuss content and any logistics. It’s great to make sure everyone knows how the day will work out and be clear about the content.


    How long does the course take?

    It takes between one and two days depending on the amount of people sitting on the training. For one person one day usually suffices but for small groups of between 4 and 6 people two days is more realistic
