Perform a shot analysis and breakdown, based on a reference image, to ascertain the requirements of the final composited shot.

Create a compositing project in After Effects utilizing the correct resolution and frame rates required for the shot.

Correctly import the various, pre-tracked, plate footage into the project.

Create the correct layer order within the composition including layer styles and adjustment layers.

Design and create various graphical elements and motion graphics in the style of a HUD.

Create nested pre-compositions for the purpose of change-friendly editing and industry best-practice operations.

Incorporate various layer effects, layer colour adjustments, for the purpose of added realism.

Add final adjustment layers to the master composition and send the composition to the After Effects renderer for final rendering.

Why would they delete a post asking that question? That's rather odd, as I'd like to know the answer as well. Not all of us have the time to attend something like that, but would like to see it none-the-less.

Ditto.
I want to attend the Live classes, but my internet is just too slow.
So I have to wait for the retail versions.

Yes, Cargo, is in final edits and will be released this coming weekend.

Mark, this one is free... you should at least try... the webinar application is a very small app and the connection needed is not very much. Give it a shot on the free one what could it hurt :D

I stand corrected.
Surprisingly the webinar played pretty well (except for the issues everyone was experiencing)

No webinar for me either - pretty sure I had the time right based on the reminder e-mail.

"This message is to remind you that the following Webinar will take place Saturday, February 20, 2010 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM MST."

I just got the waiting for the organizer screen.
