TheMeyers have once again shown their eloquence and expert knowledge ofAfter Effects. It is my opinion that After Effects Apprentice will bethe primer for all those who are learning After Effects in productionwork.
R.Christopher Biggs, special digital effects animator, Walt Disney Imagineering
Iliterally learned After Effects from Trish Meyer two weeks beforestarting work on Star Wars: Episode 1. I wouldnt have survivedwithout her training. I consider Trish and Chris Meyer my source forAfter Effects insights. Beyond their knowledge of the application...their commitment to quality, and more importantly clarity, makes all oftheir books a Must-have. After Effects Apprentice is a great way toget started in After Effects...possibly the best way.
Alex Lindsay, chief architect Pixel Corp
