If you are looking at Adobe After Effects, there is a lot that can be found with Google Searching. There are thousands of tutorials to be found on YouTube (through Google searching). The Tutorial Site Lynda.com also has more extensive teaching videos that are more organized, but there is a fee to subscribe. Definitely worth it, if you have sampled the free YouTube stuff and begin to see the shape of the challenge, and now want to dive in and plan to focus intently to understand the program.
There are some plug-in tools for after Effects that allow you pin bits of art images together and animate them.
Here is an article about some of them:
DuIK is the first one in the article. I have played with it in a GNSI workshop, but have not done that sort of animation for my job.

I was wondering if I could get some recommendations on resources to learn animations. I have access to the Adobe Creative Cloud suite (thanks, Black Friday sale!) but only know how to use InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, and Bridge. Is anyone offering any online classes, or know of any particularly helpful ones? Thank you so much in advance!
