After Effects Classic Courses * Free!

We are re-releasing After Effects online training courses that Lynda/LinkedIn Learning have dropped from their site because they were a few years old. As any user of Adobe software knows, even though new features get added all the time along with the occasional user interface refresh, the core of the program remains essentially the same – so there’s still useful content in many of these old movies. We are posting them on our PVC Blog along with commentary about how a feature may have changed from its original release.

After Effects Apprentice Feedback

“I'm always been intimidated by After Effects. This series has taken that fear away!” – Tim Kloppensurg, via

“Recently I got a chance to watch a few courses from your After Effects Apprentice series (after recommending it to my students). Although I have solid knowledge of AE, there's always something new I can pick up from it. One example tip was the ability to scrub a color in the timeline just like a numeric value. Somehow I missed it. Once I stumble on things like that, it makes my day. So thank you for all the hard effort, your methodical and pedagogical experience are second to none.” – Eran Stern, SternFX
