Intro to Animation Curves in After Effects

If your goal is to become a working motion graphics artist, this might be the most important tutorial you can watch. Fancy techniques and tricks are great, but knowing how to use animation curves is such an important skill that it should be mandatory.

In this tutorial, I attempt to demystify the curved editor in After Effects, and to give you an understanding of how powerful animation curves are. If you’re not using them, you should be.

Comments / Questions are welcome as always. Thanks!
