I just want to encourage everyone who visits here to watch ALL of the tutorials here. Even if you think you don’t want to learn about light sabers or slideshows, there is some great information in each tutorial that can be used in various creative ways. Plus 1 or 2 decent jokes… OK, there are no good jokes but some great tips! … OK, good tips. But still.
Tutorial 62 (Colorful Universe) includes a free 3D orbit preset that can be used to animate a 3D carousel of icons or pictures.
Tutorial 12 (Elegant Slideshows) teaches you to offset layers equally; this can be used to offset several muzzle flashes for a machines gun or possibly a nail-gun.
Tutorial 67 (Advanced Car Hit) can be used to create an Advanced Bus Hit. Think about it.
