After Effects: Data Driven Animation

Participants will learn how visualize medium sized data sets. The added component of time will allow participants to convey their data in a different way. Participants will learn:

  • prepping data (converting to JSON so data is readable by After Effects)
  • Basic Javascript commands to get up and running 
  • Creative ways to graph a data set
  • Animating the data set
