5.0 stars I knew very little about After Effects before starting this course other than I really needed to learn it. This course exceeded my expectations greatly, as I found the hands-on, in-class learning environment to be a great way to learn sophisticated software. I now feel confident to take my own self-teaching to another level now that the intimidation I previously had is gone. The Training Connection company was very welcoming and the computer systems were great! It would be better if the footage files we had were of better HD or even 4K quality. Thanks!
4.4 stars Great class with great information. Rob does not just 'follow the book' which is great. Learned a lot about After Effects and more. Excited to use After Effects when I get back home.
4.9 stars McKinley was fantastic! I felt like it was a perfect course for someone who understands Adobe software, especially Premiere, but wants to take on AE & fine tune their skills. Didn't move too fast, nor felt too easy. Lots of great information. And the instructor did a great job of assimilating to all the skill levels but keeping the class moving. Totally recommend!
5.0 stars The level of detail offered was beyond what I expected; I greatly appreciated that. The instructor's knowledge of the software and all it's applications, including how it interacts with other programs is astounding. Her knowledge of video and audio technology, industries standards, and etc. is impressive. In addition, McKinley Marshall is a comprehensive instructor; she provides real world examples and uses humor as well. Terrific class
5.0 stars McKinley is a very talented instructor. She was patient and took the time to explain the tools and concepts that I needed clarification on. Beyond that, she made the class lively, fun and interesting. My interactions with other staff and instructors were very positive too.
5.0 stars An absolutely amazing class! I came thinking I knew a lot, and quickly found out - not so much! McKinley, thank you!
4.7 stars McKinley was an excellent instructor and had a vast amount of knowledge to answer all of my questions. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for real world education. Not a simple follow the book and do your home work.
5.0 stars Excellent course that has opened up many new possibilities for us work wise. The instructor shared many real world concepts that will help us apply these new skills to what we do on a regular basis.
4.8 stars I can't say enough how fantastic McKinley is as an instructor. Her real world experience coupled with examples that are extremely useful, make this seem more like personal one-on-one training rather than a class. I am definitely going to look into the other classes she teaches and see about signing up for them. She is very professional and extremely pleasant and I will recommend to colleagues that they take any class she teaches.
5.0 stars Great class with real world examples. Questions were answered and instructor was patient and kept pace with class' abilities. Would come back for sure.
4.9 stars My fave instructor, ever. This was a fun, informational class that I really enjoyed and learned a lot from. It wasn't too advanced, and it wasn't too simple. The instructor paid attention to our level of comfort. Thanks!
5.0 stars I enjoyed this class very much. I have never used After Effects before, but after the first day of this class I felt like I could make really good basic effects. I will be able to use everything that I learned this week.
5.0 stars Kristian was a great instructor, very knowledgeable, entertaining and extremely well organized. He was able to keep the class moving while adding interesting sidebars that made it enjoyable to attend.
5.0 stars Rob did a wonderful job, he keep me interested, I learned a lot because I came here knowing nothing at all.
5.0 stars I wasn't sure if this boot camp class was going to be too much for me but I was determined. McKinley made all these hard to learn concepts fun and exciting to learn. I would highly recommend her class to my friends and colleagues.
4.6 stars McKinley was incredibly knowledgeable in the field of video graphics, as well as having expertise in complimentary areas to give a full understanding. She was very patient with questions and was able to find alternative ways of explaining concepts so everyone could understand.
5.0 stars Rob was very patient, and made it easy to ask questions... I had a lot of them, and he never made me feel like I was disrupting his teaching. He spoke slowly and re-explained directions enough for the material to sink in. I will definitely recommend to my team!
4.4 stars This course was spectacular. I feel like I've learned more than I could anticipate and look forward to applying my new skills to both work and personal video production. There was a lot of information, some of which I think I will forget, so having the supplemental material is definitely helpful. After Effects is a comprehensive tool and there is much I still need to learn. I will try to get my employer to let me sign up for the advanced course next.
5.0 stars Rob Shultz Rocks! He is a Adobe PR and AE guru :) Rob's approach to teaching is effective and holistic. I've edited with Premiere for 6 years and wanted to add After Effects to my tool belt. In one week I have learned advance techniques to help polish my PR skills and now I know how to begin using AE. I can't tell you how many OMG moments I had, now my level of editing will go from amateur hour to animation power. LOL :) I'm really excited to see what I can do, Thank you Rob!
5.0 stars The instructor was an industry pro who shared their real world experience as well as made the students fully understand the concepts.
5.0 stars Rob Schultz is an absolutely outstanding instructor -- extremely knowledgeable, very patient, highly skilled. I can't believe how much I've learned about After Effects in just a few days. This course will pay for itself many times over in terms of increased productivity and much higher production levels. Now I really want to take the Premiere Pro course!
5.0 stars I wasn't sure what to expect of the classes. The class set up was top notch. The computers provided were of high quality and set up properly. Our instructor, Kristian Gabriel was genuinely excited to teach us the concepts and application of After Effects. That helped me to be engaged in the class. The course was very deep and intense at times with a ton of good, usable information. I would definitely recommend and take another class.
4.9 stars This is my second class here. I took Premiere Pro with McKinely, which was really helpful in learning After Effects. Both of those worked together so that each one reinforced the concepts of the other and I feel more confident in my editing skills. I am extremely excited to take what I learned here and apply those skills in my work place.
5.0 stars This class was awesome. The only regret that I have was that I didn't do it sooner! Kristian was awesome! He far surpassed any expectations I had. His skills and teaching methods were top notch. His patience and concern for the students to learn was great. I would highly recommend this class to anyone. So glad I got to do this. Thanks Kristian!
4.9 stars This After Effects Fundamentals class is an absolutely fantastic class. I feel confident that I know have the basic skill-set and hands on experience to be able to navigate the program with confidence. I am also aware that the key to success for a lot of these programs is practice and patience. McKinley was a patient kind and fun teacher. She maintained a great level of enthusiasm and instruction; she is extremely knowledgeable and shared a high level of confidence in her skill-set and professionalism. Overall, this was an awesome way to learn and to spend a day! Thank you.
4.6 stars We covered a lot of material in a few short days. McKinley really knows her stuff and it made all the difference. The class was both informative and fun. I would definitely take another course with the Training Connection and recommend to others.
5.0 stars I was very impressed by Rob's knowledge and instructional abilities. The pacing of this class was fast enough to keep things interesting but Rob allowed plenty of time to review information if needed. This course has exceeded my expectations and I would love to take the Premier course with Rob if I had the opportunity to do so!
5.0 stars Excellent. Best Adobe training that we have received. Kristian is extremely adept at tailoring the coursework to align with career goals.
5.0 stars Best course I've ever taken!
4.4 stars Rob was patient with all students, and would go back to review with each student if the student did not understand the first time of instruction. Even though I had some experience I learned alot more by taking the Boot Camp Training. Thank You Rob.
