Who do you prefer for online training for AE and CS5 ?
on Jun 29, 2010 at 7:13:15 pm

Ok.. I learned After Effects years ago by going through a total training video at the time. It was great. I have students I believe would benfit also learning this way and I would like to go back and pick up some additional pointers I may have missed with some advanced training. Now there are several companies with online training. I am looking for feedback as to which one most prefer? I am sure they are all good..

This recommendation falls into the "tricks & techniques" category than actual training, but have you checked out the tutorials on videocopilot.net?

Lots of 'em here on the COW, too -- just click on the Tutorials button above.

As for online training, I don't know. I still think Total Training's a cut above.

There's the often-overlooked VCP basic training, too: http://www.videocopilot.net/basic/

Total Training pwns, to use the language of your students. :)
I love it.

Here's a page that's perfect for beginners; it's full of links to great resources including the VCP basic tutorials to which Walter referred as well as several other good options. This page is full of other, more advanced options.

I'll throw my vote in for Total Training in the category of for-pay services.

I list others that I like here:

(That's a multilingual and somewhat more recent version of one of the pages that Michael pointed to.)

Check out http://www.lynda.com. They have a pretty good 100 level "course" for AE 5. They also have a TON of other training titles available from AE to Finalcut to Avid MC (all for a monthly $25 US subscription). On the more expensive side, there's also http://www.digital-tutors.com, they have some decent training but maybe not as much variety as Lynda.com. and for the Uber expensive courses, there is http://www.FXPHD.com... really good training, but @ $330 US for a ten week course, it is a bit spendy. Then again, that does include two other couses of your choice... you just have to make sure that they're offering two other subjects that you're interested in that quarter.

Anyway, that's my .02 cents (us),

Shawn
