this course is really nice. I was able to do my own animation!!!
Good info here. I'm familiar with illustrator but have never opened After Effects so I thought the first part of the class was nothing new and the second part went by way too quick. I should take some AE tutorials first to know what's going on. I think if you have familiarity with the tools this will help show you how to get the pieces together.
Great tutorial that will guide you through the process of animation from start to finish.
