Video Free After Effects tutorials

Hello guys and gals,
Recently a community post highlighted the Video Copilot website to my attention, as a member asked how to create explosions. This website has many fine tutorials, from beginner to advanced that could provide a hand in creating anything from a fancy reel title or some loud explosions, to some good compositing tricks.

Hopefully some of the special effects tricks, could perhaps help the stopmotion animator. When in college, a very good animation friend used After Effects to add steam to rise out of a cup of tea. Added some beautiful texture to her film.

Best thing is, most of these fine tutorials are posted for free. Check it out at

Hope you enjoy!
