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.

there isn't enough information the.explaining is a bit boring.Could be better

Great courseBest,

I found this after searching for several hours to find an online tutorial about making a bare-bones, functional slideshow template. Seriously, it's hard to find a quality one. Though very basic, the instructor shows how to build a hot-swappable, self-contained composition to hold and manipulate individual slide assets. Just the thing I was looking for. Thank You.

Good course but when you compare with the instructor's Novice To Expert course needs a little bit of tweaking in terms of content and present day applicability.

short video don't contain more details and deep point to improve skills

I had a great time with this course. It was manageable and I finished it in a few hours. I also liked the organization and workflow Louay demonstrated for working on real projects. A few of the subjects were worthy of another course, (like lower thirds), but he covered them enough to understand the basics, and I'm looking forward to learning more with the next class.

?Thank you very much Mr Louay for giving us the opportunity to learn these professional tips and techniques of After Effects.This is definitely the best course on Udemy because these slideshows could be done for family photos, for company products, for business presentations, for Youtube videos ... and more, in a professional way.The course is very clear and easy to follow, because the instructor is not just an expert in After Effects, but also a great TEACHER.I highly recommend the course to everyone looking to make professional slideshows and master the After Effects at the same time.

only explained about the keys later onsome of the slideshows are unusable in the real world - just too cheesy

Thank you so much M. Louay , it's a geat course; i learned so much in every course i take from you . you're the best ^^

Second course now with this instructor. Very knowledgeable in After Effects. Thanks for another great course Louay.

simple examples,step by step ...,fast responding on questions

Its good. i'm working long on my own slideshow and wold have preferred the adjustment layer explanation come when you actually apply the adjustment layer. It created more work.
