As we mentioned earlier, we've been busy this year creating an extensive, multi-course video training series based on our popular beginner's book After Effects Apprentice. Each course has two or more movies that are free for all to view; we're re-posting those videos here on PVC to make sure you don’t miss them.

The sheer mix and volume of formats to deal with today can be mind-boggling. Videotape player/recorders – formerly a common denominator – are a vanishing breed.

One argument I hear against tapeless formats OVER AND OVER again is, to paraphrase, "tapes are infallible. You can’t accidentally delete a clip from a tape. Having a PHYSICAL tape in your hand makes you sure you have the footage and it is there, and usable, and I can see it YEARS from now."

In the process, he's won three Academy Awards; he's directed his own feature-length film, the creatively subversive Return to Oz; and he's worked with some of the greatest directors of modern times, including Francis Ford Coppola and George Lucas, on some of their greatest films, from The Godfather trilogy and Apocalypse Now to...
