  • Drek Fite: "Louay is an excellent teacher. There is so much in this course, and there is no way that you can remember everything. However, I think it is the best overview of AE available. I've already come back to review certain portions of the course when working on various projects, and that is very helpful. Making good use of the Notes feature too for such a large course is helpful. Louay was extremely fast at responding to questions and viewing my work that I posted on YT.

motion graphics

comprehensive course: 1- to just understand the full program - not only the motion graphics - 2- highly recommended it for novice beginners Level - 3 - The week point here is after you finish this course you will forget 60% of its content so you have to Know that :) For beginners, it's worth.

I need to do two-three times more practice to reach the fluent level of creating motion graphics.

I am learning Motion Graphics at a very fast pace because of the indulging teaching style that Mr. Louay has in all his lectures.

The Course is well organized and well paced for even a beginner like me is also finding motion graphics easy.

The level of graphics and animation style used in the lessons is way too low, I am a graphic designer who is trying to learn motion graphics for my daily job, I found myself skipping many lessons because the animations used are outdated and not nearly close to the modern standards (for example most of the sections about text animation).

I learned a lot about motion graphics great experience...thankiyou sir Yes for now i feels good with this course.

its very good i learnd a lot Good pace I havve recreated the motion graphics thank you!!

I've always wanted to add text animations, motion graphics, 3D animations etc, to my videos, but I had my apprehensions whether I could achieve what I wanted.

Thant you Sir Very good course, but almost the entire first third (and large parts later) is focused on Motion Graphics.

Louay gave very useful information especially in motion graphics.

He's really good at in motion graphics.

I wanted to learn motion graphics from past 2 years.

A very thorough and well organized course for learning motion graphics in After Effects.

In this course he try to introduce all of the things about motion graphics & I think he 100% success.

well thought out

This was very comprehensive and well thought out.

Progression of lessons is well thought out and all doable if you practice faithfully.

Very well thought out instructions.

Lo unico que pondria de pero seria q very detailed , exactly what I expected, untill now looks very good Although the accent makes it a bit difficult for me to fully understand, the details that he explains are well thought out and easy to understand.

Thankyou Beautiful and simple explanation method Great pace - really clear and well thought out - builds on basic skills, reiterates and reinforces them... Definitely a great match.

Very well thought out and formulated lesson(s) Explained very clearly in barney style for me!

premiere pro

Am now ready to take my next course which is Premiere Pro and more.

by far the best teacher on After Effects Before enrolling into After Effects, I had completed Adobe premiere pro course and the videos I edited looked somehow a bit flat without any effects.

I'm so happy that he does - other courses I have that are only 2 years old are now obsolete (I'm looking at you Infinite Skills Premiere Pro course).

I am already thinking of signing up for another course on Adobe Premiere Pro Easy to understand.

If you have any experience with Photoshop/Illustrator/Premiere Pro, this course starts out VERY slow.

A great start..though I already knew the initial steps since I'd already learnt Premiere Pro and it's quite similar to it.

I've been through your premiere pro course and liked it.

I have some experience with After Effects and Premiere Pro and I wanted to create animations with my own objects and ideas instead of buying "pre-packaged" ones.

So far I’ve already learnt some animation tricks and it is about lesson 4 or 5 I've been learning how to use premiere pro and between that program and this course I seem to catch on quickly.

le cours

Hello Louay, To be very fair, I like your course too much and you have covered each and everything in single course.

If you complete the whole course, you will definitely have a very good overview of what After Effects can do and a great springboard to hone your skills further.

le cours est super bien expliqué, je ne connaissais rien de after effect avant ce cours aujourd'hui j'arrive à faire de petites animations.

The Quality of content available is really good, The instructor explains in an easy way that is easy to understand & follow along with the lectures, Definitely a worthwhile course to try out if your just starting out learning after effects like myself.... cool awesome!

This is shaping up to be a very effective and enjoyable course!

Actuellement je possède de deux pc, donc je regarde sur un le cours et sur l'autre je m'exerce en même temps.

One of the best courses available online L'instructeur est charmant et très en connaissance de ce qu'il instruit mais malheureusement le cours n'est pas très bien structuré.

On passe souvent du coq à l'âne, et pour quelqu'un de novice comme moi, je pense qu'il faudra faire le cours complet plusieurs fois avant de s'y retrouver.

clear and precise, enjoyable course so far Kesinlikle doğru bir seçim.

Donc le cours est prenant et implique véritablement l'apprenant dans le processus.

Very complete and full of info Si Yes great ف ok its great DA great course Good Thank you so much for this valuable course..!
