Learning After Effects

As a guy who is going to soon tackle Adobe's After Effects, I found this article encouraging. Kevin McMahon did the same thing recently and came up with these "5 tips for learning After Effects".

  1. Know your DV basics first.
  2. Know what After Effects is (and is not) for
  3. Know just enough of theAE keyboard shortcuts to be dangerous - and realize that this does not mean that many.
  4. Start simple, and I mean super simple.
  5. Use the wealth of AE resources - and take a class.
This is my summer learning project. Thanks for the plan of attack.
