Visual Effects and Motion Graphics

Visual Effects and Motion Graphics

Creative Cow and Video Copilot are perhaps the gold mine when it comes to video editing tips and tricks, editing suite packages and plugins. Eight year old Creative Cow is a progressive new media haven, with roots digging as far back as 1995, when a couple embarks on the creation of the WWUG (Worldwide Users Group) website. Video Copilot “guy” Andrew Kramer spends his whitty humour and desires for sweet n’ sour pork throughout unbeatable video tutorials showing you exactly where and what to do in order to “amplify” your motion graphics and visual effects skills. Adobe After Effects is a sophisticated program and following through a manual doesn’t exactly allow you to jump in, but using the video tutorials found on these websites gives you the opportunity to work along side the pro, and learn the craft all the while – almost like virtual apprenticeship. You have the chance to learn simple transition effects, or compositing, keying techniques – and these guys aren’t running out of things to show you.
