New Series on 3D work in After Effects

Last week, +Train Simple launched my latest premium series, After Effects CC Building on the Fundamentals.  I covered a previous course on the basics of After Effects.  This course takes those lessons further and focuses on the 3D aspects of After Effect's vast toolset.


In the course, we learn how to work with 3D layers, lights and cameras.  Eventually, we lead up to building an animated title sequence, which uses several 3D based tools.


You can check out the introduction video above.  If you're interested in taking this course, follow this link to Train Simple.  Thanks!

New Tutorials for the Week of December 01, 2014

This week we have two new tutorials from outside authors.  Both of these tutorials deal with animation, so if that's your thing, there's a lot to look forward to here.

Up first we have a tutorial that shows you how to draw Bart Simpson's head in Anime Studio.  +Dewald de la Rey crafted this tutorial and if you want to see him do more with this character, such as animate the head or draw the body, be sure to sound off in the comments on this blog or the video itself!  Check out the tutorial below:


Next, Khoa Tan Nguyen has released a second tutorial showing how to create dramatic camera movements in Crazy Talk Animator.  While Khoa's tutorials are more geared towards Vietnamese viewers, he has included English subtitles this time around for our English speaking followers.  So, if you're a user of Crazy Talk, you will want to check this one out:


Thanks for reading.  We'll see you next week!

Last week I made an announcement that I would be accepting outside authors to create tutorials for the Incredible Tutorials YouTube Channel.  So far I've received some promising applicants.


To kick off this new movement, I have uploaded a new tutorial this week from Khoa Tan Nguyen.  Khoa specializes in Crazy Talk and Anime Studio.  Additionally, his lessons are taught in Vietnamese, allowing the channel to broaden our reach.

Check out Khoa's tutorial on how to integrate Anime Studio assets with Crazy Talk:


I plan to post new tutorials every Monday (should I receive them).  Check back next week for more!
