Hello everyone, I am brand new to AE b/c editing video on final cut pro is more of my thing however, I am trying to learn how to manipulate footage using AE. Does anyone have any suggestions on any good tutorials that could help me get on my way to effectively enhance my video clips? Thanks a lot!

You should look at the Tutorials here on the Cow and please check out the Basics Forum:

In particular read the common After Effects Questions section, this will help you avoid asking questions that have been answered hundreds of times.

There are many other good tutorial sites, among them:


Trish and Chris Meyer's books are indispensable for beginners and Mark Christiansen's is good for intermediate learners.

Creating Motion Graphics:

After Effects Visual Effects and Compositing

I'm sure others will have more recommendations.
