Free Tips and Tricks By Ko Maruyama
Recently I reviewed the new book from Angie Taylor, "Creative After Effects 7".   Artbeats has supplied readers with some excellent pieces of stock footage (found on the book's accompanying disc).  Artbeats also offers a sample of the book as a PDF on their site.  Not only do they offer a chapter of Angie's book, but several other tutorials from other professional leaders.  The tutorials that Artbeats offers point out how to use the tools of the software, so that you can manipulate the footage.  The thing that I particularly appreciate about Artbeats footage is that the material is strong and clean enough to weather serious manipulation.

With the release of Angie Taylor's book, Artbeats has released Chapter 10 as a free download.  The chapter, outlining how to paint on footage, features beautiful footage of two lions drinking at the water's edge.    This is the same material used during Angie's demonstration during this year's NAB expo at the Artbeats pavilion.  If you were one of the several attendees taking notes, you probably have the technique down.

Other presenters, like Chris and Trish Meyer, writers of the "Creating Motion Graphics" series, and leaders of the MGLA (Motion Graphics Los Angeles) group, Jeffrey P. Fisher, a moderator and regular contributor at http://www.creativemac.com, and Douglas Spotted Eagle, a Digital Media Net moderator in several forums, including Apple's Soundtrack, Serious Magic, Sound Forge, Vegas and Ulead Cool 3D also presented within the Artbeats theater at NAB.

Now you can find more tutorials about how you might incorporate Artbeats material into your next project by simply visiting the Artbeats website.  To find out more, visit http://artbeats.com/community/tips.php
