Many of the programs we work with on a daily basis are capable of so much more than we realize. Adobe After Effects, for example, is an industry standard special effects program. It has so much potential to create truly amazing work, but with such an enormous number of tools, effects, and plug-ins, it’s hard to know where to begin.
After Effects can be a very daunting program with its capability to do anything from basic color correction to building an entirely original three dimensional world.
There are tutorials scattered all over the internet that can teach you any number of things about this program, but one amazing source for video effects editing is www.videocopilot.net.
The folks at Video Copilot have created hundreds of amazingly detailed tutorials and stream them on their website completely free for you to use whenever you’d like. These are some of the best I’ve come across. They are extremely easy to follow and never skip a step. Even if you are an After Effects beginner, you can create text animations, explosions, demon faces, and more just like one of the pros. If you’re looking to try your hand at creating some wild special effects Video Copilot is a great place to start.
