All science touches on art; all art has its scientific side. The worst scientist is he who is not an artist; the worst artist is he who is no scientist.
This book is about creating visual effects using Adobe After Effects, the world’s most widely used compositing application. It helps you create believable, fantastic moving images using elements from disparate sources, and it allows you to do so with the least possible effort. This first section offers a jump-start (if you’re relatively new) or a refresher (if you’re already an After Effects artist) on the After Effects workflow.
