::Saw your AE stuff on Dribbble, coming along nicely. Is it hard to learn?::
Cheers mate. :D
I'd be lying if I said I'd found it easy.
I'm a kinaesthetic learner so I have to learn by doing until it sinks in.
LOADS of tut's out there which are a massive help.
Do you do the graphics/illustration for others to animate?
I was doing that but started to learn a bit about AI so I could set things up better for the AI guys like layering AI files and setting characters up for rigging.
I found I was doing everything (concept, script, storyboard, design and illustration) and I was only missing the animation bit.
I loved it seeing my stuff come to life but I was finding I was getting a bit disappointed by some of the AI work so I thought I'd give it a go myself.
I'm still finding it pretty slow going but it's SO rewarding and it's becoming a bit of an obsession.
I set myself a task that involved animating some band characters I did ages ago and it's turned into a full on music vid. O_o
