Excellent material. Precise instructions. No confusion. To the point. Easy to follow instructions and simple clear explanations.

Course is only about the last 1 second of the House of Cards animation sequence, not the entire opening credits. I though this would be a course about how to set up long exposure, time-delay, camera slides, and then applying each sequence into the shot and final export. All this course did was teach you how to animate an object in After Effects, which is literally in the tutorial for After Effects.

Detailed project creation made simple enough even a novice in After Effects could follow along and duplicate what Phil is demonstrating. That's good because I am just learning how to get the most out of this robust software.
