How do i start learning After Effects?
I downloaded a bunch of tutorials from the internet that all deal with the very very basics of AE.I've understood the interface, what each panel does, where the various options, effects etc are..i've also looked at a few examples but i am at a loss on starting something of my own...i don't really know how and what to practice. when i started learning 3ds max, i started with modeling. i learned modeling, then collected a few reference images & started modeling the various objects, then i started learning texturing & collected more references to practice my texturing. Is there any similar process behind learning AE? please help me start learning. Thank you.
