Instructor Details

Louay Zambarakji

The Highest Rated and Bestsellers After Effects and Video Editing Courses on Udemy.
Video Editing, Animation, Motion Graphics and Visual Effects is what I lovecreating and teaching, Offline and Online.
After Effects is what I love working with, every day, (except Sundays, my wife and kids won't let me.)
I learned these the very hard way, very long time ago (since 1985) and I am still on it. It's amazing when you discover that I used to use assembly language to animate sprites (think of PacMan), Green and B/W screens. Today I am animating Videos in 3D in just a click.
The Path to Mastery starts now. Being in the advertising industry has taught me that precision and a significant attention to details are very important, and makes the difference between a fake and life like animation or visual effect.
What You Will Learn from me:
After Effects: The whole lot. In my course After Effects Complete Course packed with all Techniques and Methods (No Tricks and gimmicks).
Motion Graphics: From simple Lower 3rd to Advanced & Complex Animation up to how to get your 2D character to walk around.
Visual Effects & Compositing: Essentials topics covered in my After Effects and Video Editing courses.
Video Editing: If it's Adobe Premiere Pro or DaVinci Resolve you have excellent top rated courses.
Color Correction & Grading: Covered in my video editing courses.

best understanding of 3d working sace

Excellent explanation. Well structured and easy to follow.

Easy to follow basics.

I think there should be more real world examples of the Application ,it is good for absolute begginners

He goes over some stuff that I haven't seen in other tutorials about operating a camera in 3D. Helped me to get a overall view of how 3D works in After Effects. You won't learn any creative techniques - it's more of a 'nuts and bolts' of 2.5 3D in after effects.

I didn't know much about 3D layers, cameras or lights before I took this course, but now feel I understand it very well after taking this course. Great course.

always good......have taken many of is classes

very good Job explaining Adobe after effects in details .thank you so much

Steping forward with the tutorials of this course, Camera3D becoming more and more easy and clear to me. Thanx A Lot.

Really enjoying the Courses with Louay, very informative and in depth. This course is a perfect companion for the Novice to Expert course.

The instructor is really an expert in After Effects and has a unique professional way to teach. The course is definitely the best one in 3D animation with After Effects, it covers all the topics to create professional and advanced 3D animations, such as multi-planning, the rotation, orientation and keyframing in 3D, the use of the cameras and much more. The Instructor not only teachs the fundamentals of animating in 3D in AE, but gives really very advanced tips and tricks to master the AE. I highly recommend this course to anyone looking for a complete and professional course of 3D animating with AE.

Really enjoyed course. Louay makes learning after effects easy to follow along understand.
