In many cases, the first time someone new to Motion Graphics opens Adobe's After Effects, it's to do something with text, and although it might be simple to put letters on the screen, you always find yourself needing to do more. In this lesson we look at text, and examine all the parameters in the "Character" tab, and even look at some presets that you might not have even realized were there.

3 Ways to Improve Video Engagement

3 Ways to Improve Video Engagement

Engagement is my favorite metric to track, as it represents the overall performance and health of your video. Unlike vanity metrics such as Views (which simply shows the reach of your video), metrics like Audience Retention tell you the percentage of the video the audience watched (engaged with) and exactly what parts were watched. Analyzing this metric will help guide you on what your audience really wants to see so you can do more of it in the future.

The show's eighth and final season brings the most extreme looks yet to a show shot in locations around the world, and where a scene that takes days to shoot unfolds in only minutes on screen. The challenge to create unified, consistent looks has never been steeper, but a rock-solid workflow from a global team is bringing the popular series home to a strong finish.
