I watched the basic training tutorial videos on After Effects on Videocopilot.net
I think the tutorials are clear and easy to follow, though the use of an older version of After Effects in the video does confuse me at times. I think it’s a great revision guide to refresh what’s taught during sessions with Rich. They also have some other really cool tutorial videos (eg. light streak, medical zoom) that covers some common effects you see on TV, movies etc.
I think having to learn After Effects has helped to appreciate all the efforts and hard work in creating and editing great films and shows.
