Over the years, we’ve put together a large collection of free Adobe books that we share with our readers here… This extensive set of helpful, no-cost books has now grown to over 30 different titles that you can legally download and use royalty-free, forever.

Read or Download the Free New Adobe After Effects Book!

These digital books cover Creative Cloud, Creative Suite, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Acrobat, Dreamweaver, Animate, XD, Light­room and more – but until now, we haven’t had a solid recent offering for Adobe After Effects.

Fortunately, this has now changed with the publication of the new “Motion Graphics in After Effects that Speaks to Your Brain” guidebook, which comes from Adobe Community Profes­sional and renowned AE guru, Dr. Mathias Möhl.

Dr. Möhl started writing this book before the coronavirus existed, and then generously decided to provide it 100% free for everyone for an unlimited time with no strings attached, as his contribution to supporting you in the midst of the crisis. His advice is to use your time wisely and learn new skills now, as they’ll help you to run a successful business once the pandemic no longer dominates our lives. You can download the book for free here.

Here is the overview description of this new guide:

So, you’ve started playing around with After Effects, maybe watched some YouTube tutorials, and wondering what the next step is? Or perhaps you already know After Effects pretty well, but still feel there’s a gap between you and a ‘real’ motion graphics professional? Well, there is a difference between knowing how to use the software and creating good motion graphics. For the latter, you need to know not just which buttons to click, but also a great deal about design, workflow, and even how your audience’s brain works.

This book is here to bridge the gap between what you can figure out with learning by doing and what you need to know to become a professional motion graphics artist.

The first quarter of the book gives you a solid foundation in animation and design (color, type, layout, storyboards and music), before moving on the meat of the volume: animating, key­framing, staging, focus, squashing and stretching, templates and automation.

You can download this guidebook for offline viewing in Apple Books or ePub or Zip format via the link given below, or read it there online in your web browser… It is not available in Kindle or PDF format because of many essential videos embedded within the content, which those platforms do not support. The full digital ePub book (or Zip file) is ~420 MB in size:


Here are a few reader reviews for the book:

“​Fantastic book with amazing explainer videos. This is a great place to start.”

“Excellent reference! Helped fill in some gaps in my knowledge. And it’s free!”

Thank you for writing this. I’ll be sharing this informative resource with many people.

“You should 100% download this free eBook if you are getting into MoGraph and AdobeAE.”

“Read this book. Very useful; I learned a lot of things. Thanks for this book!”

“This free eBook simplifies principles that everyone in the field must know.”

“A great case study project with tons of AE tips and tricks.”

“Simply put, the most useful book you can read on After Effects.”​

You’ll need After Effects itself to complete everything as outlined in the book. If you don’t have the soft­ware yet, just download a free working trial for any CC 2020 product for Windows or Mac (or try the complete Creative Cloud) – then install and start right away.

Dr. Möhl, the author, only has one request:

If you’ve enjoyed this free AE book, please recommend it to others. Take a few moments to rate it on Apple Books or Goodreads, write a review, or tell your friends about it. Thank you! This makes a big difference for us – it helps us to continue creating content for you, and helps others to discover the book.
