Product Description

Review

'After Effects Apprentice' provides a strong foundation for the aspiring motion graphics designer or visual effects artist. It is an excellent resource to help users get up to speed in After Effects quickly and to maximize their creative expression.
Steve Kilisky, senior product manager, Adobe After Effects.

The Meyers have once again shown their eloquence and expert knowledge of After Effects. It is my opinion that After Effects Apprentice will be the primer for all those who are learning After Effects in production work.
R.Christopher Biggs, special digital effects animator, Walt Disney Imagineering

I literally learned After Effects from Trish Meyer two weeks before starting work on "Star Wars: Episode 1". I wouldn't have survived without her training. I consider Trish and Chris Meyer my source for After Effects insights. Beyond their knowledge of the application... their commitment to quality, and more importantly clarity, makes all of their books a "Must-have." "After Effects Apprentice" is a great way to get started in After Effects...possibly the best way.
Alex Lindsay, chief architect Pixel Corp

Chris and Trish Meyer's clear and concise instructions make motion graphics accessible to everyone.
Louise Ping, senior product marketing manager, Adobe After Effects

This book provides a "missing link" for those who need to master essential After Effects techniques but also want to improve their overall grasp of broad motion graphics and VFX principles and methods.
Dave Hurley, Instructor, San Francisco State University MSP

The lessons are structured very well, the writing is easy to understand, and each step builds on the previous one. I will defiantly use this book in my Motion Graphics class at MiraCosta College. Thanks for making my job much easier!!
Dan Wagner, Instructor - Motion Graphics, MiraCosta College

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy Peasy, Lemon Sqeezy 24 Mar. 2009
Format:Paperback
A good and thorough grounding in AE. Simple to understand with short cut information on topics you may already be familiar with. Took a little while to arrive but was very reasonably priced.

2.0 out of 5 stars Uninspiring 8 Mar. 2011
By CJS
Format:Kindle Edition
I am disappointed with this book.

It goes through techniques step by step very clearly and the authors clearly know they're stuff.

The trouble is that the finished examples look so poor and are more appropriate for a school project rather than any even semi-serious production. If I had paid all that money for After Effects and this was all it could do I would be wanting my money back from Adobe.

I was looking for something which showed me what was possible in CS4 and I'm afraid I turn to Youtube before my copy of this book.

Chris
