Many of my students lean on After Effects and it is quite easy to learn but also Ae has limits once you learn the basics of compositing. Ae is a good as a general application. If you are serious about compositing you should really learn Nuke.
This video is sponsored by Benq. This is a brand new series specifically created to help you transition from After Effects to Nuke.
In this first video we do a basic introduction to get you started before you watch more advance videos about Nuke.
I will be showing, side by side, After Effects and Nuke trying to achieve the same result in both applications. We will be talking about the Interface, project settings, Import clips, playback, layers vs nodes, merging layers, blending Modes and exporting.
