Advanced AECC Techniques: Hollywood VFX - Michael Bay Look
  Play Video
In this lesson, Kevin P McAuliffe breaks down how to create the cool lens filter effect that Michael Bay uses in almost all of his movies. Although in most cases this effect is created "in-camera", there are reasons you would want to do the effect in post. Once you see how to create this effect, it will become a "go-to" effect you can keep in your back pocket for those clients whose footage needs that extra boost!

In this lesson, Kevin P McAuliffe builds on lesson one by not only showing you how to break down a title treatment and animate it on the screen, but also how to use the Adobe Bridge to your advantage to take animations that might take you minutes or hours to create, and be able to drop them on in seconds.

Adobe's After Effects CS6 - Difference Mattes
  Play Video
In this lesson, Kevin P McAuliffe shows you a great, and highly underused tool inside of Adobe's After Effects, and that is the Difference Matte. If you need to remove an element from one shot, and use it on another, this technique is one that you're going to go back to over and over again.

Using Paths in After Effects
  Play Video
In this tutorial, Kevin P McAuliffe shows you four different ways to use paths/masks in After Effects. Not only does he cover the basics of Path Text, but he also shows you how to animated an element on a path, as well as how to create organic paths with Motion Sketch, and he rounds things out by showing you how to create paths/masks from text layers, and then add a stroke effect to have more detailed control over the stroke than you would by just adding a stroke to the text in the Character window.

3D Camera Tracking in After Effects Part TWO
  Play Video
In this tutorial, Kevin P McAuliffe shows you, much like in the first tutorial, the ins and outs of the 3D Camera Tracker effect, but in this tutorial, he's using footage shot with an iPhone, as well as the underutilized Rotobrush tool, as well as a cool technique to make the graffiti blend into the background. This tutorial is more of what you would run into in an edit suite, with footage shot by an amateur videographer or DOP.

3D Camera Tracking in After Effects Part ONE
  Play Video
In this tutorial, Kevin P McAuliffe shows you - much like a lot of tutorials have - how great the After Effects 3D Camera Tracker is, but he takes his tutorial two steps further by adding a keyable object into the scene that interacts with text, as well as giving the elements in the scene a bit of finesse to make you think they were part of the scene from the beginning.

After Effects From The Ground Up: Chapter 1.5 - Text
  Play Video
In many cases, the first time someone new to Motion Graphics opens Adobe's After Effects, it's to do something with text, and although it might be simple to put letters on the screen, you always find yourself needing to do more. In this lesson we look at text, and examine all the parameters in the "Character" tab, and even look at some presets that you might not have even realized were there.

Another After Effects fundamental is Masking, but masking is something that in most training is quickly covered, and only shows you the absolute basics, and leaves you not only wanting, but needing more direction.. In this lesson, Kevin P McAuliffe covers not only the basics, but also some intermediate techniques as well, and shows how simple masks can create realistic, real-world situations to amaze your clients.
