The intro text to this tutorial says even if you're new to AE you will be well served by this tut. Wrong. This tut is definitely not for beginners. The instructuor has no real teaching skills and if you expand the video so you can see what is being done, you lose again because the resolution of the clip is so bad that everything is out of focus. Also, at the bottom of the video frame where the timeline is, it says HD, giving one a false impression that when you expand you'll still be able to see things clearly. This same stuation is rampant for tut's all over the internet. Just frustrating.

thank you for a tutorial that I found to be valuable.
