Good material but I'd strongly go through the AE Apprentice 4th version from the same author before tackling this one. The book assumes knowledge and you will be lost trying to do the exercises if this is your first publication on learning After Effects. Also it is dated and many of the functions may have changed names so prepare to do a lot of Google searching for current terms. This is my third book on After Effects and I am finding myself having to stop and dig into the SOURCES folder to pull up certain objects the author is asking me to transform. The layers he is asking to change do not present themselves in the pre-built compositions in the timeline so you have to add them manually form the SOURCES folder if you want to complete the exercises in their entirety. Example: On page 53 Chapter 3 the tutorial asks to select the CP_Spaceman.tif layer in the timeline panel from the Ex.08_starter composition. Look at my screenshot and I only have the Ex.08_starter composition as a whole, there is no CP_Spaceman.tif layer visible in the timeline. Looks like this was a pre-composed composition so I had to go into SOURCES and put the CP_Spaceman.tif layer on top in order to complete the exercise. If you pre-comp a multi-layered composition you will not see the individual layers anymore in the timeline so I'm assuming this is what was done.

This is hands-down, without a doubt, the best method of learning After Effects. I tried Lynda.com and failed. I then tried reading the user manual, and failed. I tried one-off video tutorials from the internet that gave me momentary successes, but failed to teach me the "language" of After Effects. This book gave me the breakthrough I needed to start my career in motion graphics. I am now a salaried motion graphics / instructional developer working in After Effects every day. I couldn't be where I am in my career today if I hadn't read this book cover to cover. Thank you Chris and Trish!

Great Book! I wish I had known about this book when I started with AE. If this isn’t the first book you get on AE, then it needs to be the 2nd. This book goes into great detail on how to use the various features and options in AE. I don’t think I’ve read another book yet that provides such clear instructions on how AE works, how to configure settings, and when to use certain features and options. It’s a must have for all users of AE.

Don't be intimidated by the physical size and weight of this comprehensive volume. Once inside it's very reader-friendly, and I say that as a rank novice After Effects user. It's well-organized, crisply written and easily digestible for newbies like me without sacrificing depth and detail. Everything is covered. The exercises are focused, well thought out and take you smoothly, step by step, through each aspect of the software while putting your hands on every button, knob, switch and dial in the toolset. Almost no detail is skipped, which is remarkable considering how many nested nooks and crannies there are in AE's very dense interface. I'm using CS6, so it would be nice to have an updated 6th edition, but it's really not a problem, just a few small differences so far and I've been able to easily work around them.

If I absolutely had to come up with a quibble, it would be that the book is printed on very nice coated paper stock, which makes it much heavier than if the pages were uncoated, and the ink is VERY prone to smudging, so I find myself going to rather tedious pains to place my fingers carefully when holding the book to avoid obliterating any of the text. I understand why they used coated paper, but it is a bit of a pain. I also would welcome a DVD-less next edition, preferring to retrieve project files via browser from an online server (and skip the plastic disk that has to be stored and disposed of someday, and can also be easily damaged).

I have no problem recommending this book without qualification.

Great book, just don't buy it for the Kindle!!!!! This book has great information for both seasoned users as well as beginners alike. What killed me was the fact that the book has been purchased by a different publisher. The book has not been updated to reflect this change. The email addresses and web pages provided for you to get the files you need to complete the lessons are all incorrect. Once I finally got hold of someone (took a week) they informed me that they would have to send me a disk as they are not set up to make these files downloadable. They are happy to send me a disk. While this is all well and good I must admit I am a bit annoyed at having spent $44 only to have a book that is totally unusable for at least two week. False advertisement in my opinion.

I have to say, before I read this book, I thought I had learned everything about After Effects. I have spent countless hours on the internet watching tutorials as well as doing my own experiments with getting desired effects in after effects. But I was required to buy this book for a motion graphics class, and to my surprise, there is a LOT of information in here covering ALL forms of after effects, even Mocha. I have to say what I thought to be 100% self-taught knowledge is now about 85%. There are a lot of things covered in here, such as path/mask interpolation, rendering techniques (after effects render farm!) and other things like the sort that are just NOT covered in tutorials around the internet.

I am very pleased with the quality and coverage of this book. I highly recommend it for ANYONE looking to learn after effects. This book is designed to instruct beginners all the way to the most adept after effects users.
