There are a lot of random videos out there, and there's also lynda. First, the good: This book is well-written, and the examples are clear.
The tutorials are fun and well-paced, also well-explained. The basics are The problem came in when I started thinking about how well this would all work for someone who was a REAL beginner rather than a past user who just hadn't picked up the new edition for a few years. Because the truth is, the basics aren't really covered, and here's the proof. It's pages. The Classroom in a Book is pages.
Lots and lots and lots of the essentials have been cut out. Look for a list of keyboard shortcuts-- it's not there. Look for the older, much longer chapters going into detail about fundamental concepts like layers and keyframes and editing-- not there.
Look for xyzabc etc etc etc In pages, it CAN'T be there. So why not just go to a source like lynda. I've had that membership for a long time, and I think I might even renew it again. But here's the problem with a video lesson format: There is no reference manual. And that's what the Classroom in a Book desperately needed to be.
I do not have a lot of patience for going through videos and spending literally ten or twenty times the amount of time I would spend to look up something in a true reference book.
Sometimes, we need specific pieces of information easily and quickly accessible and put together in an understandable way rather than having to sit through several twenty minute videos to try to figure out something very specific that we want to do.
The Adobe help and user forums are absolutely not a solution either, which is too bad. What really needed to happen is for Trish and Chris Meyer to keep coming out with books, whether in print or online format. But I don't think it's enough.
I haven't decided yet if I'll be returning this book, but that might happen, even though it isn't exactly bad Does have some good info Tutorials are well written Does cover some of what you need to know Online version included with the download is very nice. CONS Does not cover the basics very well Does not contain comprehensive information about the nuts and bolts of AE in the way that the Trish and Chris Meyer books did Not a reference book, which it needed to be Not long enough Emphasis on tutorials rather than constructing the "building blocks" of the basic knowledge you need to use AE as a tool.
WAY too expensive for what it is. Overall, this isn't a bad book to have in your library Even though it doesn't have info on the most recent updates, it comprehensively covers the basics, and the new CiaB does not. I've used a few classroom in a book textbooks for my graphic design courses at Arizona State.
This book is just terrible compared to the books for InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator. This book is full of typos, small dark pictures, and unclear instruction. I would not suggest getting this if you're a complete newbie to After Effects.
If you've managed to mess around with the program and have a good feel for it, I would suggest this book as a guide at best. However you would probably be better off saving your money and following along with a tutorial found on Google or Pinterest.
I don't think you ever work though a complete project. It's very disorganized and jumps around. Like the author was going "oh, let me show you this. You can learn more from a five minute youtube video. I really wish I had taken the bad reviews to heart.
It's extremely frustrating, what with the mistakes in the book combined with very tedious and complicated instruction. It became too much to tolerate, even for a patient person, by the fifth chapter and I have, for now, given up on this book.
Kindle Edition Verified download. The adobe textbooks take the "long way" to explain everything, but its detailed. There are 2 authors on this book and one of them is very good. The other, not so much. If you are using Ae or later, I'd look for a more current edition or be prepared to debug the lessons.
It might be worth your while as additional learning, but it was frustrating thinking I was doing something wrong without considering the lesson was flawed.
They aren't all bad but lesson 13 in particular is bad. Join Sign In.
