Trip-Hop? Did someone mention Trip-Hop? :-D The cycle mask color is very helpful when you have a lot of masks. He had a lot of good tips.

Thanks for that video. I've got it bookmarked.

I've been learning AE CS5.5 with Classroom In a Book and hopefully will be able to make some use of it. I tried dissecting some AE templates that I've gotten, thinking that I could learn AE as I did Premiere Elements (before I had P Pro) by just hovering, right clicking, and trying things. AE is a bit more complicated than most programs, so I had no success trying to learn it that way. :ha:

Bob, templates are confusing! I tried the same tactic to learn. There are many ways to accomplish the same thing in AE and some templates have expressions, etc.

Thanks for posting this video Cheryl! Now that I have a faster computer, I am going to learn AE ... :gl: ha!

Also, not sure if this has been posted before, but for Peru and anyone else starting out, I just watched these beginner AE tutorials and found them helpful. They go fast (about 20 mins each) http://www.kriscoartproductions.com/#!the-basics/c224b

You can just click the blue Next Step button at the bottom of the pages to go to the next step if you want.

Nice find Karri! I haven't seen those tuts before or that website.

Peru, no worries just start with a specific tut that has a specific expression. There are lots of expressions out there for free. You just plug in your numbers to tweak the settings.
