After Effects has grown in capability a lot since I last used it regularly. Recently, I’ve found myself needing to use it again for a few projects, so I’ve been hitting up the YouTube search to see what’s new and interesting that I might have missed in the last couple of years. During my search, I ran across the channel Jake in Motion, by motion graphics artist and educator Jake Bartlett.
For the last seven or so months, Jake has been posting a video almost every day with each going over a different effect available in the current version of After Effects, explaining in-depth what it does and how you can utilise it in your creations. Currently, his Effects of After Effects series stands at 187 videos covering a vast array of native effects available within Adobe After Effects and he’s not finished yet!
