Andrew Kramer is back with another great tutorial just out today. This one shows you how to expertly destroy a city with a few expertly placed elements. As always, Andrew explains it all very clearly and makes it look so effortless. Includes, 3d camera tracking, vfx compositing, masking, colour correction and much more.
These two videos cover 42 or so fantastic productivity tips for After Effects users. The second video is a bit more advanced and the first is essential viewing for beginners, though intermediate users will probably learn a tip or two in there as well.
Another excellent Andrew Kramer tutorial that shows off how to use the free 3d Pre-compose script for After Effects.

The tutorial also touches on the free Color Vibrance plugin also seen in this screenshot.
