RE: Hey Guys

Watch some tutorials, you'll get how it works after few days eventually.

RE: Hey Guys
hey, welcome! I'd recommend checking out a bunch of tutorials on different things, and try to follow. Not just blindly copy what they do, but try to understand why they're doing it. Experiment, and see if you can make a different (and possibly better) end result!

Once you're somewhat familiar with AE (if you do decide to use it), check out School of Motion. A quote from one of my previous posts here:

Quote:A great place to go once you've got all the basics of AE would be the School of Motion. It's more for motion graphics, the sort of thing that you'd see in Acleps' videos, but it can be useful too in PMVs. Wink

Later once you understand all the basics of AE, this tutorial by him on the graph editor is probably one of the most useful, since it allows you more control over your keyframes.

Just a pointer, since you might not know, a keyframe is basically a point in time where you can set a certain value. For example, you could keyframe the volume of your music, or the brightness of a clip. At one point in time, you could set the value of your volume to 100%. Say, 5 seconds later, you could insert another keyframe with a value of 0%. In between those keyframes, the volume would fade from 100% to 0%. This can be applied to almost everything in After Effects, making it extremely powerful for any style.

Good luck, and keep going c: here's something that's always nice to look at for beginners and slightly more experienced people alike

RE: Hey Guys
Here is an advice that helped me:

The first one is not as good as the third one, and that one not as good as the sixth.

The more you dare to make and try out new methods, the better grasp of it you will get and the easier it will get, even if you start very small.

I approve this.
