God I love this plugins. Great tutorial. The video is bit lengthy. It could have been spitted in to two parts. Million thanks for this tutorial.

This tutorial is very useful & cool either
I love the way you teach After Effects. You should work in teaching After Effects not all these things that Ahron said about you :).
Thanks for your time Chad & I hope (Really hope) to see more tutorials from you.

Hello Chad!! Great seeing you work. Some of the frame at some of the time did not cover the very quick workings of you in action. That was ok though because if you were listening, then it soon materialized as you showed everything happening clearly within in a short time. Maybe getting the display a little brighter with perhaps a split screen close-up showing everything in sync. Ahh, who knows…?
I was a forox animation camera guy in the late seventies into the eighties and was creating fancy titles with Ektachrome dupes and hand-made masks. Man, this computer has sure made things operate like magic! I’ll be watching more of your tutorials and will be getting better at everything. Thanks. Kurty

i second on the very strange editing/zooming in the video podcast.

Chad....excellent work. The screen capture was sort of unsettling at times but I don't think anyone missed much. The information presented was concise and extremely useful. I followed along and knocked out a new intro for my wife's company. Thanks for the help! Would love to see more stuff from you very soon!

Don;t judge too harshly - Chad didn't have the specs for RGTV and did his best to make this workable - after he had captured at full screen. He's a busy guy so we were glad to have him share his knowledge, and next time his stuff will be at spec.

I have seine your production on adobe traning it was fantastik to my eyes to look at.

I watched this the podcast of this tutorial. While the information is very helpful, the editing is dreadful. Rather than following the mouse, a good portion of the video is focused on random parts of the AE interface.
I guess Aharon has just spoiled us with his work…

Hey very cool, thanks!

Some great info in there, but unfortunately the poor recording/camera placement mars the tutorial. Any chance of another take full screen?

I liked the tutorial output but I must say the zooms to effects or the timeline made it difficult to see the immediate results of the changes being made. Perhaps a lower screen resolution may allow you to see the results as you are making changes.
Aside from that, good education on how to achieve some pretty cool effects.
