Have you ever wanted to learn how to animate? From childhood and adult favourites like Disney, to advertisements and short films, animation is all around us. Whether you’re an artist out to create original and fan content like short films and sketches, or a designer looking to expand their professional portfolio, animation isn’t just for the professionally-trained artist. Even someone with no animation background can learn the skills and start creating beautiful pieces of art - and we’re here to teach you how.

In this course, you’re going to learn everything about animating with Adobe Animate. Step-by-step, we’ll cover everything you need to know from opening the program for the very first time to finalising and exporting your finished animation. You’ll learn all of the tools, as well as how and when to use them. More importantly, we’ll go over the 12 Principles of Animation that every animator has to know. Finally, we’ll tackle animation itself, from building a character to animating scenes with symbols.

Our instructors have years of experience not only in animating, but also in teaching, and the expertly-crafted syllabus is designed to be easy to follow and thorough. We’ve even included dozens of examples edited on-screen for you to study. That’s why this is the only Animate course you’ll ever need to animate your favourite toons!

She tries her best, but with all these other 5 star ratings it might be misleading to think this course is as good as it is. Try other courses.

I am so confused. haha She just talks non stop about so many things. It seems like she is figuring it out as she goes. Awful.

You learn to start with Animate in this course, no doubt on that. But the lessons are quite difficult to follow sometimes. The instructor jumps from one thought to another and it feels like that she didn't use Animate for a long time. Often she talks to the person who was suppose to edit the video to cut out certain parts, but clearly nobody did that. This makes the course unnecessary long and hard to follow at times.

I like it however some of the terminology used in the video wasn't beginner level. I'm experienced in animation and graphic design software, so i was able to keep up, but I can see a complete beginner getting confused

ik zocht een cursus die me zou vertellen hoe ik met Adobe Animate kan werken, maar krijg hierover weinig info. Ik kende Flash van vroeger (20 jaar geleden), maar wou nu Animate opnieuw leren…

I'm a newbie with Adobe Animation and animation in general, so I am pleased with the instructor...she makes it very easy to follow along and understand the basics. So far, so good!

Es wird sehr gut und ruhig erklärt. Ich schaue das Seminar am iPad 2020. auf dem Laptop ist es nicht so gut da nur 15 Zoll.

I learned a lot about animation. I would have liked to see more technical details discussed. And to go though all the tools and menus in Animate. Some part were a little long and parts could have been edited out of the course. Overall it is a good start to learning the software and the principles of animation.

I wish the course was structured in a way with examples to make it more comprehensible rather than casually going through the UI with pretty basic stuff.

The instructor doesn't spark me as incredible confident but seems to be very experienced with the animation. I did find myself learning quite a bit.
