Deeper Modes of Expression, Part 8 posted

Deeper Modes of Expressions

If you wanna be an AE Pro, dive into expressions!

Trish and Chris Meyer have been releasing a special chapter of their book Creating Motion Graphics with After Effects in what will ultimately be twelve installments of Deeper Modes of Expression. You can find these at their blog CMG Keyframes on the Pro Video Coalition. As the name implies this series really digs in deep and explores ways to help you make your comps dance in ways mere keyframes aren’t apt to allow easily. The eighth installment, Deeper Modes of Expression, Part 8: Going for a Loop, was posted yesterday.
