  2. I’ve learned a lot from John Dickinson’s website: motionworks.com.au
    A couple more are Aharon Rabinowitz’s allbetsareoff.com and Alan Shisko’s blog, although it’s been a while since he’s updated it.

    Nick – I’m somewhat new to your blog, but I’ve noticed you talk a lot about NOT getting locked up with tutorials, and instead creating our own stuff. I refuse to just create a carbon copy from someone’s tutorial, but I continue to struggle with using these techniques to come up with original stuff.

    Any chance you could grab an AE tut from one of these sites, and then show how to expand on it to create some new variations??? I’d love to see what you’re talking about in action…

    Thanks!

    I recommend fxPhd highly. I’ve been doing it now for over 2 years.
    The after effects classes are fantastic and you can’t do better than Tim Clapham for C4D.

    They also pointed me to Nick’s site, so they must be good. :P

  6. Hey Nick

    I’m just making my appearance to let you know I watch your every cast, so you’ve got at least one loyal reader in Argentina.

    Keep it up. I’d like to see more workflows, especially in Ae.
    Also, keep saying “bye” the way you did today and on previous casts, it’s the actual reason I watch you. Cracks me up.

    Thanks for the other links that I never knew.
    One thing I want to say about the videocopilot.net is that it is the most powerful resource for after effects. It has lot of contents that is nessesary for motion graphics. from basic training to advance. lots of free projects, tons of free presets,
    great products, he is very active guy. you get one or two eye catching tutorials every week
    . I think it’s very famous in television industry. I have seen lots of motion graphics
    on many telivision channels like HBO or others have used the videocopilot contents.
    thanks to the peoples like you and andrew kramer.
    bye!

  9. The best C4D training I’ve found is at http://www.cmivfx.com

    They take you very deep into the program, including cloth systems, advanced rendering, dynamics, thinking particles and expresso. Pretty advanced so if you are just starting out lynda.com or the book by ann powers is a better staring point.

  10. Creative Cow podcasts are great, Eran Stern is hilarious and he and Ahron explain things really well.
