I love sine waves, and in Adobe After Effects there are a number of ways to do them, This tutorial I'll will cover 4 ways, 1 with a plugin, and 3 with expressions.

Puppet pins are cool, new advanced puppet pins are cooler and you can do some non-typical stuff with them that can save you some time. This tutorial will show you a quick way to move parts of a single layer around as though they were separate layers. Pretty neat!!!
Also, you MUST check out the Keyframes Conference. I'll be doing some training there and I'm super excited.

Prepare for a long tutorial. In this After Effects tut, I'll go over the start to finish on preparing/creating/and rigging up a shape layer preset. Specifically a sign or a callout. This auto links with whatever text layer you want, and is all around really great. Anyways, its long, but I don't hold anything back, you see the whole process.

Just messing around in After Effects, you know, for fun.
This was a live stream, just trying out some stuff, maybe you'll learn something.

Just messing around in After Effects, you know, for fun.

Learn 3 methods to create a smear effect rather than a traditional motion blur in After Effects. This is especially nice for animations with crisp vector images. It gives the image a feel of motion blur with out the blurry soft edges.

This is a quick premiere pro editing tip. Sometimes editing the audio and video at the same time makes the edit more noticeable. Watch this as I quickly offset the video edit and the result is not as noticeable.
