Ernst Pierre - I don't want to start like others saying this is the best course in AE available here on Udemy, I think it's even better than that, this course is hmm! ... I cannot find any words. The content is great, the lecturer is awesome, the TIME TO RESPOND from the instructor is unbelievable, it's like he is just here waiting for your questions to reply (last time he replied me in 5 minutes).

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.

Great Course for those who want to earn after effects!!!!It has everything you need !He is a great as well as a friendly teacher !

comprehensive course:1- to just understand the full program - not only the motion graphics -2- highly recommended it for novice beginners Level -3 - The week point here is after you finish this course you will forget 60% of its content so you have to Know that :)

Very hands-on and useful course. Worth taking and taking seriously if you have struggled in the past with watching YouTube tutorials - it is really eye-opening and worth the time. Thank you for such a comprehensive course!

Good course! The best Teacher!I`d like to have more practice during the course, more tests...Some complicated things are very simply to understand with the course, but unfortunately I still have problems with the simplest things from the early Sections of the course.I need to do two-three times more practice to reach the fluent level of creating motion graphics. But this course is a "KEY" to start.Great Thanks to Autor!

For beginners, it's worth.But for VFx learners there is nothing because I already had learned all from youtube, what this course contains about VFx except color correction.

Course cover all what it tells about within review... Or almost all. You have got basic instruments and how to use it, some interesting techniques, but don't expect that it will be enough for getting professional results with it. What you can get here and what will work for you is typographics and infographics animation, but i doubt that compositing and visual effects themes are revealed enough.Sadly, instructor will leave some questions without answers and i couldn't understand how much he explained on specific themes. Either after effects have huge limits when you need to do that kind of work, because of software purpose (animating text, shapes) or it is just covers poorly (examples are set up for being effective, you wont be able to do some job if shot doesn't work for it).I respect all efforts, that were putted into course (huge amount of info, lectures are easy to grasp, there is a good job of narrative) and i admit, it is really good start for studying program, but it is not practical enough if you have in mind doing something besides text or shape animation.

The guide goes over every detail and operation in the software accurately tolerant and with a lot of explanatory knowledge for the student with a lot of tolerance. It is worthy of appreciation for how the guide is taught. Well done.

It is a tremendous course, the instructor has a very good teaching method and style. Course content and the way it is created is up to the mark. So the bottom line is, I am very happy I am here on Udemy and learning at the tip of my fingers in a place where such courses are very expensive.

Amazing experience and very comprehensive training module with each and every topic very well explained in easy to understand language.

Thanks to the instructor Louay. Is teaching is really Awesome. Very much friendly in the way he communicate and do the teaching. He uses very simple words and easy way to make sure a common person can understand. I am really impressed of this teaching and looking to take more courses from him.

I'm totally satisfied by this course and it met all my expectations

I have Been using After Effect for 5 years now and am only learning today about track-mat in this first lesson with you. I hope I will know more about track-mat in the coming lessons. Am loving the class already. ThanksThis course has been great so far.Am glad I finally finish this course and am grateful I was able to learn new techniques in graphic animation like Mask animation, Shape animation, Track matt using shapes and the audio spectrum effect.I was also able to learn about useful short cuts in AE.I like the way the instructor speak, he is very clear and precise in his speech.Am now ready to take my next course which is Premiere Pro and more.Thanks for making this course as easy as possible.CheersSulaiman
