So, I opened After Effects for the very first time with a big sigh for the big learning curve that was about to happen.

However, at the end of that session I made this. Okay, it's nothing mind-blowing - but imagine not even knowing what you're going to be confronted with when you open the prog for the first time - but you go on to actually make something the very first time. Some interfaces can appear daunting for the first time - and YouTube tutorial makers will often mention that very issue at the start of their videos. 

This was made with the assistance of a tutorial, unsurprisingly. Tara Arts Movie on YouTube were responsible for that tut.
