Robert Mize is a regular tutor on Creative Cow.net. He offers very clear and concise tutorials on a wide range of 3D effects and special effects in After Effects, and quite often without the need of plugins.
Along with some animated text, I’ve been able to create this eye-catching video explaining Tasty Trucks’ Vanchising opportunity. Lots of movement, and some great music, makes an entertaining informmercial!
