Product description

Amazon Review

After Effects in Production is a follow-up to Creating Motion Graphics with After Effects also by Trish and Chris Meyer. The new book contains a dozen project-based in-depth tutorials and six case studies featuring commercial productions by companies such as Attik, Fido, Belief and the author's own studio, CyberMotion.

This is a book for those who have already clocked up a few hours in the After Effects cutting room. If you're starting a career in post-production, or are simply curious to discover how to get the most from new After Effects 5 features such as 3-D compositing, parenting and expressions you'll find it here. At the same time, half of the tutorials and all of the case studies are After Effects 4.1 compatible. All the project files, finished movies and some bonus materials are provided on a CD.

After Effects in Production isn't one of those books that contain a lot of white space, big pictures and interviews with industry gurus about the importance of motion design in a global cultural context. This is very much a hands-on manual, every spare column inch is packed with step-by-step project walk-throughs, screengrabs, margin tips, facts, problems to look out for and references to other sources of information.

The projects are substantial pieces of work, RoboTV, for example, which animates a robotic arm used as a pointing device for a sports programme trailer, includes 37 steps, 65 screengrabs and 4 panels detailing the use of particular After Effects features. This approach makes After Effects in Production one of the most highly concentrated sources of After Effects know-how currently available. --Ken McMahon


""After Effects in Production will be the second-most referenced AE books on your shelf [behind "Creating Motion Graphics].
