nice. Good Job. Keep the bird around long enough he will start doing his own tutes :)

This is awesome. Thank you so much for this, Dan. All your work is also very inspiring.

Btw, the BashCorpo website and the language…. it’s Danish. :)

interesting… good job on the tutorial.

Keep this up! You can’t learn this anywhere else unless you do trial and error. Every one of your tutorials have been helpful. I want to do this in the long run and I want to be good at it!

Hey Dan,

Loving the tutorials, have watched them all. Please keep them coming. Can you show us how to do special light and lighting effects in an After Effects tutorial. Appreciate all you do.

Great tutorial! Thanks for sharing this. I’ve always wanted to learn AE in order to add additional effects to my work and this has whetted my appetite to learn more. Thanks!

Thank you very much Dan. I am going to use a variation of this for a intro to the Save America Foundation. It is pro-bono free work that I do sometimes for them. Your tutorial higlighted better than Andrews the importance of Pre-Comps. I have the book from Chris and Trish Myers “Creating Motion graphics with After Effects CS5″ but I haven’t gone over it much about pre-comps.

Thank you again.

PS, yes, I will credit the design to you and your website at the end of the video. The Save America Foundation is a Christian ethics foundation.

Dan, you da man! We have used several of your videos in our church services… I am in awe of you! What a blessing you are to all…

Thank you for EVERYTHING!

Muy buen tutorial! y me gusta mucho lo que haces respecto al Nuestro Señor Jesucristo.
Excelente trabajo.
Sigue así!

Well done my good man. Keep up the good work. Your videos reach many people, so God Bless! Saw one of your vids in church the other day which brought me here. Best of luck on your future endeavors and success!

So happy I found your site, I’ll be contacting you soon.

Awesome tutorial! Thanks

Great stuff… very helpful. I’m curious about your thoughts on shadows. I kept expecting that you were about to add a soft shadow from the text box. Do you tend towards or away from these sort lighting elements? Thanks a million – Brent
