AENY – Brian Maffitt at 9/27 meeting

The man, the myth, the legend, the man whose name is easier to mispell than my own!  Yes, that’s right Brian Maffitt will be at the next After Effects New York meeting.  Brian use to run a NY area group many years ago before Total Training took over the bulk of his time. 

Regardless of your experience with After Effects, you’ll want to see Brian present – he’s a whiz and I’ve never seen him and not be excited about some tip or trick that I’ve picked up from him.  AENY meetings happen at Pratt Institute on 14th street.
