Anyone out there use AfterEffects and/or know of a good book/DVD that I can use to learn it? I don't mind jumping into the fire but that program is a bit over my head.
Good to know because the tutorial from Adobe is a PITA, no help at all.I use After Effects pretty much every day now, and I have to second both the Video Copilot and the Chris and Trish Meyer books. The books are great because they explain what all the controls and buttons in the program do, and Video Copilot is great for explaining how to do different things without having to sift through a big book.
Video Copilot also has a pretty good beginner's guide to After Effects where he takes you through and explains how to get projects started.
