I would like to learn how to use After Effects CS5 to compose my hand drawn backgrounds and and animation cells. The backgrounds are non-stactic images - they are intented for pan shots (vertial and horizational etc) and zooms.
Are there any 2d animation composing courses anywhere. If so please supply a link.
If you want to composite 2D animation on 2D backgrounds. Just cut everything out in Photoshop, convert everything to 3D layers in AE and use a camera to move through the images. Also, check out my new blog. It has several tutorials that discuss doing hand-drawn animation in Photoshop and AE.
