Nope… head over to lloydalvarez.com to see what I am talking about. Visit LloydAlvarez.com Visit AEScripts.com

      Lastly, we have Rich Young. Now a lot of you might not know very much about him, like me, because he stays very under the radar. What we do know about this mysterious After Effects aficionado, is he runs the famed AEportal.

    • Dan Ebberts

      A lot of the After Effects community, or at least the noobs are scared to death of expressions. Personally, I find it hard to delve into them, probably because I failed math in college, but Dan Ebberts is the leading person to talk to about anything and everything expressions. He has been writing computer programs for 30 years, so it seems to come natural to him, and the things that seem impossible to us, can be solved in a matter of minutes with this guy. His website, Motionscript.com was down while I was writing this so I am going to direct you all to his Creative Cow profile. Visit Dan on Creative Cow

    • Mark Christiansen

      Ayato’s work has inspired a bunch of people to create some awesome stuff, and if you have never checked out his site you are missing out.
