After watching you for over two years it is really time to say: Thank you, thank you, thank you! If you ever want to visit Croatia on their Islands give me a sign. There are a lot of people doing this stuff out there but you are really the best and unique. Hope to get one day to California for whatever.

Cheers

So I watched the first tutorial after I learned the basics with the video copilot basic training.
And just like Rebel28, my plan is to watch ALL tutorials, I really want to do some cool stuff with AAE.

Just watched the first tutorial, I plan to watch every single one.

I've been using After Effects for two days, and I haven't watched any tutorials properly. (Mostly FreddieW, Corridor Digital Behind the Scenes)

But I'm already making some pretty good motion graphics.
I wonder if I'll be any better when I'm done with the tuts.

Wish me luck

This is a very good tutorial and made learning track motion and keying very easy. I also recently started learning After Effects and had followed concept tutorials, but to learn and seeing applied concepts and techniques is the best path to learn things.

Thank you for sharing this tutorial Andrew, your website and animations are really amazing. =)
