I've been using After Effects for ten or fifteen years and have done a fair amount of work compositing using it. Some motion graphics, too, but for whatever weird reason this is the direction things have taken. Almost got hired to do work on a major TV series on FX... have had hundreds of shots on basic cable on other networks... but the money is not in compositing in After Effects or every 16 year old with a mac would be rich! I'm not about to learn Nuke to make a living (maybe later this year), but I need more income... Does anyone know any good motion graphics tutorials for after effects? I want to learn how to do the animated swoops, text, etc. that you see on TV and corporate videos. I have a chance to do some of this for money soon -- maybe -- and I want to start up a reel. Just really basic stuff. The most boring stuff your clients would ask for.
