After Effects, Video Copilot, Andrew Kramer and Element 3D
If you use After Effects, and don't follow Andrew Kramer and Video Copilot, well, I don't know what to say. You're missing out on great free stuff, awesome plugins, and some of the best After Effects tutorials in the universe.
This new offering, Element 3D, is just ridiculously awesome.
The only negative comments I've heard is that you might have to learn some 3D terminology to understand it fully. Ah....well...OK!
