- The first thing you should know, before watching this course, is what version of After Effects you're working with. Currently, we are working with Adobe After Effects CC 2016. You can find what version of After Effects you're running by going to the After Effects menu and choosing About After Effects. On a PC, this is going to be available to you under the Edit menu. If you are running a previous version and have an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription, simply go to your Creative Cloud application, and download the latest version under Apps. This course is also very dependent on different third-party plugins. Certain examples shown require up-to-date third-party plugins to be installed in order to work. For users who have very few of the plugins mentioned, I've included a project file that shows examples only. For more information, feel free to visit the plugin providers' websites mentioned in this course.
I called the app Simple Draw, and it's available on the Amazon Appstore right now, downloadable for free. If you have a Kindle Fire device, go grab the app and try it out. It's a very simple drawing app targeted at young children - you can draw with your finger in various neon colors, clear the screen, or save the drawing as an image, which you can view in your Photos and share with others. 153554b96e
