4.5 stars Great Class. I feel I grasped the course well and the instructor was patient and willing to go back and redo things if they werent understood the first time. So helpful. Very patient. Kitty Mahoney
5.0 stars Kristian was an amazing teacher and was incredibly thorough, patient, and knowledgeable. Great guy and great class! Will recommend for sure.Jeff Porper
4.4 stars I've been using After Effects for a long while and I've had to self-teach everything. This class really helped me understand all the different tools and spaces and aspects in the software. I used to avoid tools if I didn't know what they did because I didn't want to do something irreversible on accident, but now all those questions were answered and I have a much better relationship and more speed working on After EffectsValerie Crook

5.0 stars An absolutely amazing class! I came thinking I knew a lot, and quickly found out - not so much! McKinley, thank you!Bob Anderson
