In my experience, many AE users don't know how to view, apply and edit the free presets that ship with AE to kick-start their projects and save time. In this video tutorial you will learn how to quickly find and apply presets to get that professional look you're after.

Re: Kick-start your projects with AE presets

Hi Nancy

Unfortunately, there isn't a list of the tutorials in order as I started putting up tutorials before I thought about creating a system for them. The numbered tutorials are for beginners although they do give a thorough grounding in the basics for those who know a little but want to know more. The nu-numbered tutorials are usually the more advanced tutorials – especially for After Effects - and if you are only starting it may be better to come back to some of those after doing the basics series first.

That said, this link http://library.creativecow.net/articles/devis_andrew/ will give you a list of everything I've done on Creative Cow and may help you work out what you want to cover and what to leave.

Incidentally, the AE Basics series is still in production with one tutorial coming out each week -usually on a Wednesday, so do look out for them. At the moment I am going through text creation and animation over the next several weeks.

I hope this helps, and thanks once again for your kind comments.

mocha AE Planar Tracker for Absolute Beginners

mocha AE Planar Tracker for Absolute Beginners

Want to learn how to create advanced visual effects? Learn how to use mocha AE to track your shot and add advanced visual effects to live action footage inside Adobe After Effects. mocha can help you track shots that would be hard to track using traditional 2D point or feature trackers because it is a PLANAR TRACKER. A planar tracker uses planes and textures to track as opposed to points or groups of pixels. This allows the tracker to stay on track even if your shot contains motion blur or a very shallow depth of field. mocha AE comes included with Adobe After Effects and is available since CS3 and there is no reason for you not to use this awesome tool to make it easier for you to track your shot, replace screens or rotoscope!
