Excellent introduction to After Effects,
This review is from: Adobe After Effects CC Classroom in a Book (Kindle Edition)
This book is excellent for getting to grips with the basics of After Effects. I purchased it as someone who is familiar with the graphic and web design tools in the Adobe Creative Suite but with no experience in their video production software - and it was an excellent introduction for me.
Each chapter is a self-contained lesson exploring different features of After Effects in a clear and accessible manner, with accompanying project files downloadable using a code in the back of the book. As it is an introductory book, the features are covered in enough detail to understand how they work but not so deeply that you become bogged down by the details.
By the end of the book, I felt quite comfortable working on videos of my own and was able to do further research into features that were of particular interest to me.
If you are new to After Effects and want to be led through the basics, this is the perfect book for you.
