    Now, I don’t want to be rude, but this tutorial is way to “complex” explained. I actually got lost while watching it and I own all them products.

    You move way to fast from one thing to another. Even for people that do this on every day basis.

    Don’t get me wrong, in your vision, you know where to go from step to step, but this one was way to fast.

    Keep the pace down from 5 to 3 for beginners and intermediates.

    Loved the tutorial but I had to review it twice and pause once and a while to keep up.

    Hope this is a contribution for upcoming tutorials.

    Greetings and best wishes.

      I disagree, I thought the tutorial was very clear. I consider myself pretty intermediate in after effects, but I could follow this pretty easily. Besides, it’s already 35 minutes, I don’t think I would want it any longer.

      Great job, John! I’ve been using Digital Juice editors toolkits and motion designer toolkits at my workplace for a while now, I gave a big THANK YOU to my boss when he bought them. They are HUGE time-savers!

      This is a walk-through intended to inspire viewers with what’s possible, demonstrating how I work, It’s not a step-by-step spoon-feed. Keep practicing Christoph and perhaps come back to it some time in the future. Best wishes, John.

      Hi Dev, perhaps if you have access to one of the classroom-in-a-book books by Adobe, that would be a good place to start… Best, John

    This was excellent. A TON of techniques squeezed into 36 minutes. Thank you so much.

    I appreciate that you stress making things your own and unique instead of cookie-cutting it.
