Customer Reviews

Great Book. Loads of material  March 27, 2011

This is without a doubt the best motion graphics book there is. This takes you though the many different tools of After Effects and shows examples on how to use them. It's pricey, but worth it. it's a very through guide to say the least. It also comes packed with a DVD of extras which are great, and not just fluff. I like ecampus price too, highly recommended.
