I liked the style in which this was made. As an editor it's great to see the path that others take when trying to figure something out. The pacing and amount covered is perfect. What a lot of tutorials do is over explain and slow things down to the point of being "not a real world scenario". This video is so great because he just points you in the right direction and lets you do all the experimenting and tweaking on your own.
I would have liked to have seen a little more on the final look but other then that it was a fun and educational video. Thanks
