Rated 2.5 out of 5 by from Too difficult. I understood only 10 % of what he says. Not well explained for a beginner. If you explain a tool you should start explaining what is this tool for, the coordinates where we work and what are those lines for.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by from Great video set! I really like his style of tutorial. Wish he would slow down a bit sometimes and explain what were seeing in the display as he is knobbing around, He does offer that sometimes but he flies through some things. I wish I could stop him and ask a question.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from Nice Job On This One! This course is thorough, complete and clear. Eli's courses are always good but he has a tendency to be fairly sloppy as though he creates each movie in one pass and moves on without editing or even reviewing them for errors. He seems to be getting better at this which is good because he's an excellent presenter overall. This is one of his better courses so far.
