Okay. Well now's the time where I get a chance to thank you for checking out this course. And of course I want to talk to you about the next steps you might want to go through to continue pushing your After Effects education. I generally recommend going on and checking out some real world projects to really sort of get your feet wet in the After Effects world. And one of the easiest ways to do that is to check out the Mograph technique series. Now I have a couple titles in there but there are many different authors. So, definitely check out Mograph techniques.
I'm just going to show you a few right now. For example, this one. Mograph techniques, creating a product endpage. In this I actually create a 3D model of a bottle. And we track it into some live action footage. The next one. Morgraph techniques for retiming and tracking footage. Where, we literally retimed some high speed footage and track in some other graphics so it's more of a visual effects take. Now, another series you should check out is After Effect Guru. This is a series where we will dive more deeply into specific topics.
There are multiple authors and, for example, this one. Richard Harrington will show you faster ways for previewing and rendering. Another great series, the After Effects Artist in Action. This is one of my favorite titles. Eran Stern's personal transporter title. In here, he actually gives you a really cool visual effects technique you can use to create kind of a personal transporter. Now if you really want to get into the nuts and bolts of how After Effects functions. You might want to look at the After Effects Apprentice series. In this series, they go way, way in depth into each individual tool, button, switch, etc.
Now, if you really like 3D, I suggest checking out my After Effects Guru title on working with 3D in Cinema 4D Lite. This will give you a good overview of how to get up and running in cinema 40 lite in about an hour. And then if you really want to get up and running deep in cinema 40 lite you might want to check out this eight hour course from Angie Taylor. It's awesome. And then of course if you want more real world projects for cinema 40 you might want to check out one of EJ's courses for example this monograph techniques course.
Animating with C40 effector, needles will say, there are a host of different directions you could head now that you have completed your After Effects essential training and once aging I just want to say thank you this has been Ian Robinson. Take care
