      Hi Bijotoha, thank you for your comment.

      I’d say that After Effects and Cinema 4D are the preferred weapon of choice for the majority of motion graphics artists today with Photoshop/Illustrator on the side. There are various of other software out there you can create motion graphics and 3d with but those are the most commonly used.

      There are tons of tutorials and resources online and you may already be familiar with the likes of and which are quite popular (for good reason!). Instead of giving you 10 links to online training I’d rather suggest you purchase a book on After Effects by Trish and Chrish Meyer (
      I think they are really good at explaining things and they also have online training classes via – a site that I highly recommend for training in various softwares (not free though).
      I started out myself with one of their books and I’d recommend doing that as you can do it in your own pace (+ offline) and there is much more information and descriptions on how things work that you won’t get from online tutorials. Also it’s also nice to have a book that you can quickly look something up in.
      As mentioned there are so many great tutors and training videos out there – but I’d rather suggest starting off with getting the basic understanding of After Effects in your rucksack as I think you will benefit more from that.

      There are so many routes to take and this may not even be the one for you – but I hope that can maybe help you a bit and give you som sort of an idea of where to start..

      Best of luck – and happy rendering!
