This course is absolutely amazing and everything that you will need to completely understand After Effects it is Perfectly explain, all of the project files allow you to follow along with the instructor so you can learn every aspect that is being taught, nothing is left out at all, it is an investment that has nothing but beautiful returns do not be left out GET This COURSE
Great course and will really take you from beginner to feeling comfortable in the program. Only complaint was the (self-admitted in the prefaces) redundant-ness in the bonus courses. Some of them are so dated that I think they should probably just be removed in order to clean up the curriculum, as they sort of felt like a momentum killer after coming out of the main body of the course. Overall, great stuff.
Sí, aunque me hubiera gustado un curso en español o también que los subtítulos se acomodaran de otra forma, ya que algunas veces estorban en lo que estás observando en pantalla.
Clear enunciation and communication so I am clear about what the presenter wants to communicate. Hoping for the best.
Phil, thank you so much for taking the time to explain everything perfectly, I'm really happy with your course, this was my first contact with Adobe After Effects, and I was really hesitant to work with it, because I'm 30 years old and really new on the field. I finally decided to take a turn and study and work in the field I loved since I was kid. You really made some hard parts easy to understand.I'm half way in the course, but I know everything so far.Thank you for this awesome chance!This course is really above expectations!
A very good course for beginners who have no prior knowledge in After Effects and also, it was well made for Professionals. A huge amount of bonus course was very useful for advanced learning. Thanks for this wonderful course !!!
Very easy to follow and has a good flow of content so far. Not jumping too far ahead of what needs to be learned first. All builds on itself well!
Deep understing of the basics which is one of the most important part to learn how to use after effects properly.
I like how Phil describes the material and he makes the content approachable, even though After Effects is a beast of a program. So far, I am enjoying his teaching style and he really breaks down the material into chewable chunks. I also appreciate that he's covering the material in a modern way, meaning the things he's teaching us are not outdated...AE is from the 90s. He's teaching us what's "in" and popular now...things that I see other YouTubers have embedded in their videos. Thanks, Phil and Udemy!
This Adobe After Effect course was awesome and I'm strongly recommend to other people who wants to learn complete journey of AE. Thanks to the trainer and every section are created well in form. Thanks once again!! :)
I started the course and I cannot stop watching this - really useful and it is getting better and better and by that I mean I am getting more and more exciting about what I learn - Thank you
Excelente curso, lo recomiendo ampliamente. Es fácil de seguir, los contenidos y el profesor son muy claros, he aprendido muchísimo que ya estoy aplicando en mi canal de Youtube. Felicitaciones y gracias por crear lecciones con tanto valor.
Although I just enrolled into this course, however, your explanation is great and easy to follow. Thanks a lot.
Phil is such a great instructor. The exercises are easy to follow and I feel so good about my AfterEffects skills now!
I have some experience with Premiere Pro so this is covered. It's great if you're new to that though.
