AFTER EFFECTS APPRENTICE
New Years Learning: Third Edition of Real-World Skills
Adobe's After Effects is a popular software solution for animators and compositors. If you're making a resolution to start learning the application this year, getting started from scratch can be a daunting task. There is so much information online and even in Adobe's own Adobe.tv network. This book breaks down the application into very digestible segments, in an order that allows the user to achieve some interesting and artistic results after the second chapter.
The book is filled with large type, large images (screenshots) and easily identified shortcut key patterns. These are important features of the book. This book isn't necessarily something you'll read in absence of the application. Chances are, you'll be reading this as you are working your way through After Effects. It's going to sit alongside your keyboard or tablet, so these features make the book successful as an instructor. And hey - you have Trish and Chris Meyer reference at your fingertips of course.
