An Intermission for After Effects

It's been a couple weeks since I've made a full blog post and my personal projects have been a little like Abbey Road post-Beatles lately. While I still have content trickling through the likes of Dribbble and The Noun Project, I've been more focused on Medium articles and the latest tweets about the iBeacon, UX principles, and workflows. Now I have been picking away at some lengthier blog posts, but at the rate I've been completing my own stuff, it'll be another couple of weeks before it sees the light of day. That being said, I've been compiling a list of handy After Effect channels that gave me a helping hand in making solid UI interactions and creamy-smooth GIFs.

Mt Mograph: The beginning tutorials, a.k.a. summits, are rough around the edges (they were Matt Jykka's very first videos), but the content is 100% intact. I've referred to Mt. Mograph the most since the summits are flat-oriented, embracing 2D and low-poly styles.

School of MotionJoey Korenman's humble website sports a wider range of tutorials than Mt Mograph. While some of his results are subjectively hit-and-miss, his tutorials are valuable for the process. Important AE features, such as the graph editor and expressions, have their own video while other features and animation concepts are included to streamline your workflow.

Greyscale GorillaThis very active creative community focuses more on Cinema 4D, but if you're working with C4D assets in After Effects, or simply want to experiment with both at the same time, they're definitely the go-to place.
