compositing adivce

Hi!
Im a relatively new in the cg world, I started about 2 years ago and know enough about modeling, texturing, rigging, lighting and rendering but I dont know anything about compositing ive seen various tuorials about the subject, but they are very basic stuff, and some friends and i have been offered a job in which i believe im going to have todo a lot of compositing so we have been given a music video by transfer called take your medicine, thats the look they want. so the question is this does anybody know of any good compositing tuts for after effects? or if not, can anyone give me some advice on what render passes should i use or what procedure should i follow to achieve that final look?

http://www.videocopilot.net/ will basically get you started on everything you could want in After Effects, and is a great resource for wrapping your head around how the software works.

And if you are in a bind, go to http://videohive.net/ and buy some of the templates there, and modify them accordingly. Both sites have saved my behind a few times!

I used AE for many years and switched to Nuke and never looked back. With something as complex and flexible as compositing I think that a node based workflow makes a lot more sense. It may take a bit to wrap your head around not using layers, but it's WAY worth the effort.

Depends on what you're doing. For comping multi-layered .exrs and 3D in a single shot - yes Nuke excels at that.

If you're doing motion graphics/text/any kind of edit with time - AE still beats Nuke.
