Control Time in Templates – Adobe After Effects tutorial

Control the timing of your templates! Give users the power to retime animations as they need. Want an animation to last longer? Or text to come on slower? Should a logo come on later? Sooner? Using a simple group of expressions we will open up a whole new world of template possibilities. Even if you don’t make templates you might learn something here.

Bass Shake – Adobe After Effects tutorial

Shake the camera with your thumping bass, even if you can’t separate the bass from the track. Pump it. Pump that bass. And then shake it. And by it I mean the camera. Not your booty.
