Hi, I'm new to the forum and design work in general. My boss has bought an electronic billboard, and has asked me to handle it. I'm currently using Photoshop Elements, but I'm wanting to add motion to make it pop a little more. My question is, do you guys recommend any books starting with the basics of AE? Right now YouTube videos are my go to, but that tends to jump all over the place.
You can also learn a lot from Lynda.com. Not just After Effects but a ton of other programs and topics. They have a free 10 day trial. For the last couple of years I gladly subscribed to this site at my work. Recently my local Library added this to their list of services and I can log in with my library card and get access to the entire Lynda.com site. Maybe they have this in your area.
It's okay. The COW can look a bit cluttered sometimes and it can be hard to find some things. I wish there was one page where all of the Andrew Devis beginning AE stuff was listed instead of having it a bit scattered like it is.
