Technology is rapidly evolving with every passing day with new research and development appearing in almost every field of life. Similar is the case of technological advancements in after effects techniques. After effects has seen many developmental phases in the past decade and the designers who pace up with the updated knowledge of after effects techniques (through learning or tutorials) are always successful. Here are 25+ interesting tutorials of after effects techniques so that you keep yourself updated all the time.
In this tutorial you’ll learn how to fracture layers and manipulate in 3D space with ease and how to use expressions, scripts and create a distressed title.
In this new tutorial from Pro Juice, Nick takes you through the steps of creating an energy ball with the Particle Filter in Adobe After Effects. Using a layer of smoke, blurs, colour correction and some masking techniques, Nick shows you how to create the energy ball, give it a burning hot spot, animate it to fly towards the camera and reflect off the nearby fence.
In this video tutorial, Eran Stern creates a watery liquid push effect and color corrects the shot using the bundled Color Finesse plug-in.

In this tutorial you’ll learn how to create a dynamic bar graph with customizable values and streamline graph production without sacrificing quality.
Animating your After Effects design in 3D space is fun and, for the most part, easy to achieve. However, the camera and objects can have their own agendas in some instances, but a few tricks can change a seemingly uncontrollable camera animation into pure, cool cinematography…
In this first part James will teach how to create 2 scenes. First how to take a shot of a mansion and give it an intense and scary look through sky replacement and colour correction. Second we will take a shot of a stone gargoyle face and create a subtle yet creepy effect in which it frowns evilly at an oncoming victim. Be afraid…be very afraid.

In this tutorial you’ll learn how to create 3D interface display as seen in Iron Man’s helmet and how to Build self-animating components and artificial lighting.
Typography is one of the qualities upon which we base most of our design work, and the type animation engine in After Effects offers a gamut of ways to express typographic flair. One of favorite is the ability to control the 3D motion and position of text characters. When combined with simple camera moves, depth of field, and some real-world studio tricks we use every day, the results can be—literally—powerful. Let’s get started.
In this tutorial Naim Alwan ventures outside of After Effects for a little bit of 3D Matchmoving to create this stunning Urban Jungle effect where vector graphics are perfectly tracked to some city footage.
In this tutorial We are going to learn to give life to our text, animating each word in a rhythmic animation, you will find a lot of things in this detailed tutorial.
