View Full Version : After Effects
I was wondering if anyone knew where you could gain Adobe After Effects Training (other than from a book). I'm from perth. Anyone got any ideas?
Oh sorry A - I forgot to get back to you on this. I don't personally know anywhere in Perth. Everyone I know learnt from the manuals, and being thrown in the deep end. Try contacting the FTI and see if they have any leads. Possibly something through AFTRS?
No probs jude, thanks i will contact them.
There are a range of excellent tutorials available on Creative Cow. Could be worth a look. Go to www.creativecow.net/articles/aftereffects.html and check it out.
Useful forums can be found at http://mograph.net/board/index.php? http://www.vfxtalk.com/forum/ http://www.postforum.com/forums/ and are also worth looking at. For more advanced operations go to http://aenhancers.com http://www.motionscript.com/ or http://www.crgreen.com/aescripts/

Team Digital in East Perth run Adobe courses, but not AE as far as I know. They might be able to point you in the right direction though.
I did some AE training a couple of years ago and even 2 whole days was only enough to learn the basics. I've since used a few books, some good and some bad. The best I've come across are Angie Taylor's 'Creative After Effects' and the Meyer 'Motion Graphics' series. At RRP they are not cheap, but I've picked up a couple of older editions at a fraction of the price on eBay and in book clearance shops.

The AE course I did was good for learning the "this button make it go like this" basics of AE. All the really useful stuff that can make AE sing I learnt from online tutorials - most of them from the COW.
Every new trick you learn in AE can apply to everything you do in AE, not just that specific task.
At the risk of repeating myself, the cow is a great resource. They also have support publications with examples that you can buy on-line.
There's been a bit of a kerfuffle recently about the Cow censoring posts that contain links to their rivals. Some people are now boycotting it because they feel that it's actiively making money off their free advice.
It did seem a bit rich to me that they would go so far to stop even the mention of other forums or products in a 'Community' forum.

I've just hung up my COW Forum Leader boots - I've just been too busy. I was unaware of the whole censoring thing... the Lindebooms are doing very well with the COW, but that sort of thing is a bit dodgy.
