    Adobe After Effects books help

    anyone has any suggested books for me to read it up and learn? I'm planning to get something like Adobe After Effects CS3 Professional Classroom in a Book or some sort of Adobe After Effects CS3 Professional Studio Techniques .

    just assume that I had to learned it from sketch, even thought I know how to use the premiere pro. And I want to learn till some advance lvl by myself.

    Only one I have experience with is Classroom in a Book for 5.5, which was part of my multimedia coursework in college. Any of those Adobe-published books were always nice to step by step guide you through common project types, but if you already know the program somewhat you might just want to make up projects to challenge yourself with.
    Assuming the current version of the book is similar, I'd say it's a decent place to start, if you're not in tune with what After Effects does.

    I will pick the classroom first then, andn maybe getting advance tutorial when I'm more familiar with AE. i'm just play around the AE cs3 I got just now, the first impression to me is that it has lots of different that the premiere pro, althoght there is still some similarity between them.

    After Effects and Premiere have very different purposes, so of course AE will seem a bit different. AE is for compositing/motion graphics, Premiere is an editor. Similarities are really due to both being Adobe apps, and ones made to work well together.

    Whether you use a book or not, make sure to check out www.videocopilot.net and go to the tutorials. Andrew Kramer does some really great stuff with AE.

    Also, creativecow.net is pretty useful for info on all forms of graphic programs/related media.

    You should check out Lynda.com. It's a good place for videos of all adobe programs. You can actually find a lot of their tutorial packages on torrent sites.

    Such as this one right here.
