Big Skwish says:

Thank you for always explaining more than just “click here make it this value”, there are always a couple extra seconds to say what you are actually affecting, making it easier to apply the effect to anything. Yours is one of only a handful of channels that have actually helped me learn some new techniques and further what i know, plus you’re funny, making any lesson alot less boring and alot easier to remember. a sub for you sir!

reefrunner says:

5 minutes into the tutorial and already my AE is starting to piss me off. I bring in Advanced Lightning over the solid layer, but there is no movement in the bolt. It’s literally just standing still over the footage. Who can help me out?

Sebastian Harris says:

Do I have to buy the full version of after effects to do this and other cool things like this or can i use creative cloud?

Tyler Baker says:

Any one got any solutions for when adding the CC Composite at 37:44 it adds a white layer on top, and the only thing i can do is edit the opacity of said layer. Instead of it bringing the definition of the core lightning back.

Any chance of getting the AE file to follow/see exactly how you set this up? Watching your video is great, but I’m a slow learner, and I do better with something I can follow along with…..

Thanks for your amazing video tutorials…. totally awesome!

Kirk Douglas says:

amazing!! are there any tutorials for how you do the effect on the hexagon logo at the start??

BanisherofRadiance says:

K I’m just gna ask since its happened twice now. Any ideas why my Exposure keeps affecting other layers that it’s not on? 1st time adjusting it for the blur it brightened the whole screen to a light gray not just the blue blur which I could correct with a curves effect turning down the gamma. Then 2nd time after applying the ground texture and setting it to luma matte, adjusting the exposure again made the grunge texture reappear and be extremely white even though the texture is on a completely separate layer. Wadafaq is going on?!
