I'm not completelynew to After Effects but this course taught me i everything i needed to know to fill up the gaps and made me fully understand after effects and how i can achive the things that i want to create.

Having dabbled a bit inn After Effects, this course was a big help in filling the gaps in my AE knowledge especially with using the camera.

hola bueno phil yo soy de mexico compre tu curso por que me inspiraste confianza pero en realidad te debo mucho, gracias a este curso conseguí un empleo como diseñador produciendo vídeos lo cual me encanta y gracias a ti y tus cursos lo recomiendo al 100% tambien tienen que poner un poco de su parte no aprenden solo de verlos, saludos Starting with a general idea of after effects made it easier for me to pick up the skills.

I feel confident with After Effects now.

I was looking for a more definitive course on After Effects.

This course managed to touch on quite a few topics within After effects.

Other than that i'm an extremely happy student I'd recommend this course for any after effects first timers as well as after effects veterans - there's something to learn for everyone.

I thought for someone who hadn't opened After Effects, this course covered everything I needed to get started animating.

I'd like to see how after effects can used more on video footage.

Phil Ebiner's "The Complete Guide to After Effects," is a wonderful and comprehensive course to dive into this Program, and get started with creating our own animations.

This was the best CS6 After Effects beginners course I have ever had.

This course is the answer to anyone wanting to learn Adobe After Effects in the most efficient manner.

I recommend this course to anyone who wants to develop sound skills with Adobe After Effects.

motion graphics

Come on Phil, at the end of the course and doing your motion graphics practice & at the end you say" I'm not sure i like this animation" You're right, it looked dreadful, do you not plan your lessons, why not teach something that looks good????

I learned a lot and now I'm able to make cool motion graphics!

That's a good thing but I must say that "You are too fast in adding the keyframes and not explaining what's happening and even the "" text is interrupting the view I feel like I have everything I need to create motion graphics and be confident in using After Effects.

One person might want more"digital signage" type motion graphics, while another person just wants to learn how to make light sabers and special effects.

The tutorials based on reader questions are great and the best section is following Phil as he creates motion graphics in his practice sessions.

I am a software engineering just getting started in After Effects and I got through the lessons in a week and already feel comfortable making motion graphics!

If your knowledge of After Effects and/or Motion Graphics that's a perfect way to begin.

I can't wait to get through this course and get creating some awesome motion graphics!

I think for someone who aspires to be good in Motion Graphics by using their creativity and imagination, Phil will give just what you need to head into that direction.

I have already made tons of cool motion graphics, effects, and animations with after effects and I'm only halfway done with the course.

If you want to check out just two of the motion graphics I made, my YouTube channel, "Shillarious", has them in the beginning and at the end of my videos as intros and outros.

Well after completing this course of Mr. Phil , this will earm me the title of Motion Graphics Editor hence, leveling up my qualifications haha .

follow along with

I wish he provided more course materials so it would have been easier to follow along with him.

Phil Ebiner has a lot of great information but does not recognize how difficult it is to follow along with what he's doing on screen.

I downgraded him 1/2 a star because the order of the information can make it difficult at times to follow along with what he's doing- namely showing animations before showing how to draw basic shapes.

I'm able to follow along with the instructions.

He is a pleasure to follow along with.
