This course is intended for beginner and inexperienced designers, who aspire to learn Microsoft PowerPoint for professional or private use. No matter if you want to add a new skill to your portfolio, create videos, impress at work or start beeing an online entrepreneur. If you have very little experience with the software or are a total beginner and this will be the first time you open the software - this is the right course for you!

It's your best shot at getting on the right track to becomming a pro in the quickest possible way. I am releasing this content totally FREE of charge because it is also intended to be a prequel to any of my existing and future premium courses. So I am both helping people and making sure that I have a point I can direct people to if they never used PowerPoint :)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The course has 2 main goals here which I explain right at the beginning and am completely open about:

  1. I want you to get familiar with PowerPoint and teach you a little bit about the program itself and its animation features.

  2. I want to make sure that in case you are interested in my premium courses but are not sure about my teaching style, the pace of my lectures and if you will be prepared enough to enroll them you will be 100% equipped to do so after taking this course.

Sometimes people did ask me to make a very basic introduction to PowerPoint - and I believe such a little Crash Course is the perfect way to be released as free content since you can ensure that you will have the neccesary "prequel" knowledge to understand any other, more advanced course.

All of my courses are fairly beginner friendly but in case you would struggle I encourage you to take this course first to see how it is. If you already know everything that is taought here - you are overqualified and ready to go :)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What this course IS, and what this course ISN'T. Please read to not be dissapointed!

  • It is a very basic and brief introduction into the software and it's animation features

  • It is very beginner friednly

  • It is aimed for people with little or no prior tech experience or knowledge of PowerPoint

  • It isn't an advanced powerpoint course

  • It isn't a complex, insightful explanation of all powerpoint features

  • It isn't suitable for advanced powerpoint users - if you understand the basics you do not need to take this course

I think I am very clear with my message about the intentions of the course, what is beeing taought here and who is it for. Some of the features you will learn here are bext viewed by reading through the lecture curriculu,.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Some features I want to explain here:

  • What is PowerPoint, what is it used for and the difference between its versions

  • Explaining the interface, how to add slides, save presentations and export them to video

  • Adding & editing shapes, text, pictures and designing an entire slide

  • Using both transitions and animations including all their types and changed timings

  • Creating an entire animation sequence for a slide

  • and of course some more features along the way :)

I highly encourage you to take this course and have some fun inside PowerPoint with me, see you inside! Enroll now!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):

I'm a total beginner in PowerPoint, is this course right for me?

This course will teach you all the necessary basics and advanced tools, but it's not a PowerPoint 101 for beginners. I mention basic tools and techniques, but I assume that you are computer savvy and know how to find your way around PowerPoint already.

I'm enrolled in your Master PowerPoint presentations course. Should I get this one or is the other one enough? Which one is better?

Good Question! Both courses are top PowerPoint courses that teach you the knowledge and tools to create outstanding presentations, animations, and templates. They are just two different versions that use different slides and unique content respectively. The benefit of that is you can follow a different design path on each course. Students who finished the first master course were asking me for more, and I'm happy to provide more if there is demand for it. If you already feel super-comfortable with PowerPoint, one course is enough. But if you seek even more design ideas and slides, and if you like my content and the way I teach, you won't go wrong by taking both courses.  
With both courses, you can reach a similar level of PPT knowledge, but in different ways and different designs. Each of those two courses has several unique sections that allow them to expand your knowledge on their own way.

I've been using PowerPoint for 15+ years and think I know the most already, will I learn anything? 

I'm an experienced PowerPoint instructor with over 250 YouTube tutorials and more than 10 published PowerPoint courses and series. Over the past few years, I have learned from both beginner and advanced students which areas to address to best influence your workflow in a positive and impactful way. My courses help you to boost your efficiency, using shortcuts and on-trend designs to help you to reach a modern, top-level standard of quality. If you need something that is not already in the course, you can always ask me about topics to add to courses that interest you.

I'm still not sure if I want to invest into this course. I don't know if I want to focus on design or on animation? Is there any fall-back plan?

Of course! First, you should watch the promo videos and watch the free preview lessons. They will give you a good understanding of the course content, pace, and what to expect from taking the course. Apart from that, you have Udemy’s 30-day Money Back Guarantee with no questions asked!

Cinematography for 2D Animation Essentials

Improve your shots, make the audience feel

NOTE: This Course is for Beginners. It covers basic cinematography.

The most common problem with amateur animations is that everything is covered from only one camera angle.

That is because they either don't know other options, or because drawing the different angles of a character can be challenging.

One thing is certain:

Good cinematography pulls the audience into the story.

The objective of having awesome shots in your animation is to MAKE THE AUDIENCE FEEL. How can you call yourself an artist if you're not making your audience feel?

There are basic cinematography concepts ignored by many animators, and that is because in animation, the priority is to make a character come to life, which is the foundation, but once you have that, you need to be able to communicate in another level, a level that makes people happy if you want them to, or sad, or angry, or scared.

Good cinematography can make a dramatic scene even more dramatic, or a strong character look even stronger, or a weak character look weaker.

You can help to create tension between two characters, and also, you can help the audience feel more attached to one character than the other.

This 30 min course will explain the different concepts in cinematography.

  • Frame Compositions
  • Rule Of Thirds
  • Camera Angles
  • Blocking Your Characters
  • Dialogue Coverage
  • Panning and Tilting in 2D
  • Camera Movements
  • Parallax

And at the end of the course, you will learn how to bring everything together to improve a scene.

You will see 3 versions of it.

  1. The amateur version
  2. A More sophisticated version, which includes Over The Shoulder Shots
  3. The Best version that includes camera movements like push and pull.

This course will help animators improve their shots, making the audience feel something when they see the animation. All thanks to the basic cinematography language that any animator should know.

The Beginner's Guide to Animation in Unity with Mecanim is for animators and Unity practitioners who want to bring their characters to life in a game environment and want to learn the ins and outs of the mecanim system. You don't need to be able to model or animate in external packages as all models and animations are provided. All aspects of animation in Unity are covered from physics, key framing, curves, forward and inverse kinematics, animation state machines and working with third party assets. Students will be introduced to elementary code, in C#, that is essential for making dynamic animations and triggers to control character behaviour at run time. 

In this course, Penny teaches all the invaluable skills you will require to begin animating your own game characters in Unity using her internationally acclaimed teaching style and knowledge from over 25 years working with games and computer graphics.

Updated to cover Unity Versions 5 to 2020 the course now contains 5 hours of extra content with:

  • new challenges and projects

  • blending animations to create strafe sets

  • adjusting curves

  • designing a character and the placing of motion capture with free third-party tools


Learn how to animate and work with:

  • the mecanim timeline

  • curve and keyframe editors

  • animation events that trigger code

  • root motion

  • imported animations created in third party packages

  • animation state machines


Contents and Overview

The course begins with the very basics of the Unity interface and progresses to an in-depth examination of all the mecanim components (including the Animation, Animator, DopeSheet and Curve windows). The majority of lectures are follow-along, hands-on workshops in which the student will explore a variety of animation techniques from creating a simple bouncing ball, through to a complex animation for a wall climbing character. Animated models and starter projects are included for students who are not confident in creating their own. By the end of this course, the student will have thoroughly explored the functionality of the mecanim system, under the instruction of an internationally-recognised professor, and be well on their way to developing snippets of code to control all aspects of 3d game animation.

Angular Styling & Animations (for Angular 2+)

You finished the business logic of your web page and you're done, right? No! Adding fitting styles and animations to a web page tremendously improves the user experience!

It's more than a little bonus - animations and styles help the user understand the flow of your page, pass on feedback to the user and overall improve the usability of your page.

This course teaches you which tools Angular gives you to dynamically style and animate your web page. This is not a CSS basics course - this course will really dive into the rich toolset Angular ships with, allowing you to build a reactive, user-friendly web application.

Just think about your favorite web apps: How many of these look ugly, seem to be styled randomly (and statically) and use no animations? Probably not that many - time to join the club of developers creating awesome user experiences!

This is what you'll learn!

  • How Angular helps you with styling and animating your web page
  • What "dynamic" styling and animating means
  • How  you may either style the whole web app or individual components you built
  • Which tools Angular offers you to adjust styles at runtime
  • How you can use vanilla CSS to build nice transitions and animations
  • All about Angular's Animation package: Building, configuring and using triggers, states, styles, transitions and more!
  • Advanced Animation features like Animation groups, keyframes or callbacks
  • How to animate the appearance and removal of elements/ components
  • How to animate lists
  • How to animate routing
  • And more!

This is what the course offers - but is this course for you?

This course is for you if ...

  • ... you got (basic) Angular and CSS knowledge and feel like you need to learn more about adding/ using styles and animations in your Angular apps
  • ... you're learning Angular right now and you want to continue learning with more beautiful apps
  • ... you even already know the basics about styling and animating Angular apps but you feel like there still is some mystery regarding the styling/ animation of components

I'd be very happy to welcome you in this course!

Your ability to create wonderful things in 3D isn't just a talent you possess- it is a powerful way to make money and build a profitable business.

My name is Sam Lytle and after creating a unique smartphone app concept called the OggBoard that gained the attention of CNET, Kotaku and Engadget, I built a strong 3D modeling and animating team that successfully developed the hardware and software proof of concept for this idea.

Unfortunately, at this time, I didn't understand vital business concept such as building a brand or developing a platform and OggStudios never left the launch pad.

I have now used the lessons learned from the OggBoard along with my education and experience in civil engineering to build another 3D visualization studio, this time focusing on the transportation and construction industry.

Civil FX now has seven employees in less than 3 years of growth!

In Running a 3D Modeling/ Animation Business I break down the mistakes that 3D artists typically make when stepping into freelancing and how to break free from competing in online freelance marketplaces and move towards finding the best clients with the biggest jobs for ultimate profitability.

I also show how to find out where you want to take your business and how to use your Unfair Advantage and a written business plan to reach this ultimate destination.

I worked for public and private companies for many years before finally having enough private clients to leave my job to pursue Civil FX full time.

Learning how to monetize my 3D modeling and animating skills has changed my life and I am confident that it will change yours as well.

If you're not having fun learning 3d it's simply not worth your time, that's why I guarantee this will be the most entertaining course on 3d animation in Maya that you'll ever take!
