Have a Smashing New Year!

I hope everyone is ready for a great year! Can’t wait to show you all of the cool things we have been working on, from blog shows, to plug-ins & tutorials!

My goal for this year is to help people get involved! More challenges, more interactive content and put the fun back into learning! Making things is the only way to get better!

Happy Holidays from the Kramers!

Where are the Tutorials! + NAB 2017!

At first, they seemed cool enough but after accidentally adding shape layers to my comps, instead of masks, I lashed […]
Visualization Experiment and new Renders
Just playing around with a new After Effects experiment without using any 3rd Party plug-ins! I need to refine some parts of the effect but I really want to make a tutorial for it ASAP! Here are some other projects you may have missed! Using Element 3D bump mapping to create some Gold coins and […]

Mr Professional please do it, you are one of the best teacher for people like me who want to learn more about After Effects.
Also your Basic After Effects training is too old, wish you can up date that one too.

Thank you so much for your help

First, Happy New Year! (little late)

Hi Andrew,
I looked in to the small details and saw one thing that was a little off, the wheels should have a little motion blur to them. So it looks like they are turning.
