Help with Adobe After Effects

Hey guys,

I dunno if this is the right place to post this but here goes nothing. I realy want to learn more about adobe after effects and how to do some simple lighting effect animations and things like that to try to imporve the look of my flash projects. Does anyone know of a good forum where they have tutorials for beginers, for someone who has no idea how to use the software?

I am ok with photoshop but after effects seem to me like some alien program.
anyways if anyone can help me out here i would realy apreciate it. thanks again .
