Of all the After Effects books I looked at whilst trying to learn it, I found Angie's was the most user-friendly and creative.
Chris Cunningham, director of music videos, commercials and video art
.a worthwhile investment for animators and artists who want to focus on creating their designs and not get bogged down in technical jargon.
Steve Kilisky, Senior Product Manager, After Effects, Adobe Systems Inc.
...one of my favorite demo artists in the industry. Her tutorials are always compelling, well-designed, and worthwhile.

Case in point: we recently hired a computer artist to do some digital matte work for us, and after a while she expressed interest in adding moving elements to her shots; in this case, she wanted to add dramatic CG-generated clouds to a shot of a futuristic city. Not having time to go through the whole of After Effects with her personally, I lent her our well-thumbed office copy of this book, and, within two days she'd learned enough of the basic processes to not only put her shot together, but move straight on to more complex set-ups. She's now one of our rising-star compositors.
The main reason behind the book's accessibilty is that Ms. Taylor's writing is not in the least bit dull - in fact, it's rather relaxed and entertaining, making the step-by-step procedure of learning AE's capabilities an absolute breeze... a traditional dusty reference textbook, this ain't. The individual chapters, which cover very basic animation through to the more complex processes of mattes and keying, are well laid out with nice, clear visual references.Read more ›
Considering that "used" AE 7.0 (or otherwise) is so cheap now, this is well worth the purchase and Highly recommended.
