As Matt mentions, the tutorial doesn’t really show how to build a completed piece. Rather it gives you what you need to know to get going to use Cineware with Ae. Matt shows how to create complex animation with minimal keyframes. In fact, the animation that Matt creates has only 4 keyframes for the whole thing.
