I’m happy I learned with Vegas that if I want to use it enough, I can pick it up just by using it 😛


You hit the ass button for scale.

Hey thanks for the demo……
Animation can also be done by adding key frame from transform section. so what is the difference of adding key frame from animation section with transform section. is there any special ability in animation sections key frames specific to an object?

FFS. I just wanted to learn how to make a cool lyrics video. Why couldn’t I learn this shit in highschool? lol. I’m so envious of people with these kinds of skills.

Dinesh Diabolic says:

i have been looking for somethin like this. Been using blender till now. I Would use boolean modifier and stuff to hide the texts and its tedious. But how do i render the frames in image strips so that i can bring it into blender compositor?

Day.Dawns says:

Hey, I’m going to be making animations using After Effects soon, around 8:20 you talk about the path tool. You specifically use the pen tool to draw a path but could I use a shape instead of the pen for example a circle? I basically want my text in a circle rotating and then to come off the circle to form a straight line of text. Would the path tool be the correct way to do this do you think?

Shibe says:

I got an add of Adobe After Effects before this video started. . .

Basic Typography & Motion Graphics and you start with music, really !?!?!

T Rex says:

Why not put in a link for the beginner course? Because I went to your site and the “After Effects Basic Training” video that you mention is nowhere to be found (at least by that name).

Rize Nation says:

yo, help me with my newest song 🙂

HulluHili Kahi says:

I can’t seem to use any of the shortcuts because i have a scandinavian keyboard. Figuring them all out after swapping to US keyboard seems like so much of a hassle

BenevolentXMachine says:

this escalated so quickly at the end. I will always appreciate awesome lyric videos now.

Thanks for the awesome shit.

Deandre Warr says:

How much would you charge to make a lyric video for one of my songs
