Learn about After Effects, the industry-standard tool for video compositing, motion graphics design, and animation.
Adobe After Effects CC is the industry standard tool for motion graphics and visual effects. Artists and post production professionals rely on After Effects to generate visually stunning work for film, TV, video, and web. After Effects brings “life” and motion to graphics, whether it’s as simple as animating a title across the screen or as complex as building a 3D world. Animate text and shapes to design title sequences and motion graphics that amaze your clients.
After Effects has hundreds of effects that let you add sparkle to your shots, grunge things up, stylize footage, or create whole new worlds. After Effects compositing tools enable you to combine multiple layers of video and images seamlessly into the same scene. Use keying effects to remove a background, or use rotoscoping and masking tools to isolate any object.
With After Effects motion tracking tools, you can stabilize your footage, apply effects to moving objects, or insert new elements into a scene that follows the camera.
To help you open up more creative possibilities by working in 3D, a light version of the popular modeling and animation software MAXON Cinema 4D is included with After Effects. Objects and scenes from Cinema 4D can be used as footage directly inside After Effects without additional rendering.
After Effects integrates tightly with other Adobe Creative Cloud applications: Dynamic Link technology lets you work seamlessly between Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Media Encoder: add graphics and animation to your project without intermediate rendering, and export finished projects in the background while you work.
When you install After Effects, you also get Adobe Character Animator, which brings artwork created in Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator to life. You can control your puppet by performing, or use the keyboard, mouse, or even multitouch to record actions. Creating a cartoon is fast and fun.
With After Effects, you have world-class compositing and animation tools at your fingertips to enhance your creative output and make your digital projects truly amazing.
