For the last few years I’ve been very fortunate. Through my work on the Creative Cow Adobe After Effects Podcast, I’ve been able to help thousands of people learn to use AE, so they can get better at what they love to do. As an animator, I love to create stuff that looks cool. But as a teacher, there is nothing that gives me more pleasure than sharing information.
I am constantly asked how to recreate an effect seen on TV or in film, and I love trying to deconstruct the examples sent to me. Most of the time there are third-party tools involved, and very often, specifically those from Red Giant Software. Lord knows, I can’t sit down to watch 30 minutes of TV without saying things like, “That’s Trapcode 3D Stroke,” or “That lens flare was made with Knoll Light Factory.” It must drive my wife crazy… Anyone else have that experience? Yeah, I thought so.
And so, with your requests and questions in mind, I’d like to introduce you to Red Giant TV, a show that will help you get the most out of these powerful tools, and give you valuable information that will help in the work that you do.
Over the weeks and months that follow, we’ll create some cool transitions and visual FX…
…recreate some familiar text treatments and motion graphics…
…even kick it old school every once in a while.
And to sweeten the deal, with each episode, we’ll offer discounts on some of the products we cover in the show. So make sure to tune in to Red Giant TV to take advantage of that.
And that’s just the beginning – there’s a lot more to come. Just you wait and see.
