"After Effects CC to creatively create the effects you want"


What do you like about After Effects CC?

It is a program that is very complete, since we can make almost any effect we want, from replacing a cell phone screen, a computer screen, a window or whatever, we can add or remove a background, you can stabilize a video or deform it in the way that best serves or needs us. You can visualize the process of our project, you can place a moving object or image slower or faster and without losing quality. In addition to this, you can choose what design or background we want to feel more visually satisfied, whether it is darker or lighter and does not affect our sight.

What do you dislike about After Effects CC?

After Effects has a problem and that is that there are times that it can be closed unexpectedly or inadvertently, either because it gets stuck or becomes saturated with information. That is why we must be careful not to saturate it and save our project from time to time. Thus avoiding losing important information that we cannot easily do again.

What have you been using it for and what problems did After Effects CC solve?

My need to create some effects for me, my social networks and my friends, led me to read about this program until I decided to buy it and I do not regret it. It is the best software I have on my computer. I always use it when I'm idle, as a perfect hobby. It has helped me to carry out good and quite professional projects at the technical level.

"The best video effect composer"


What do you like about After Effects CC?

The upsides of Adobe After Effects is that it's setting that is aligned to meet the needs of a video editor. I like the tools and features that allow one to animate text and other objects and incorporate them in a video. I also like the simplicity and clear layout that has everything laid out in an easily accessible manner. The software is also great since it provides users with beginner resources and tutorials to enhance their knowledge of its tools and features. Adobe After effects greatest upside is the ability to meet users' expectations. I highly recommend this software based on its ability to meet users' expectations.

What do you dislike about After Effects CC?

The greatest downside of AE is that it could easily have been incorporated as part of Adobe Premiere Pro. However, its independence subjects additional costs to the user. Other than the cost, the software is great in enhancing the post-production of videos. The compositing often strains one's computer processing since it uses a lot of RAM. As a result, large files take longer to render.

What have you been using it for and what problems did After Effects CC solve?

We mainly use After Effects to create interactive videos for our marketing needs and for our client's videos. The main benefit of using the software is the ability to incorporate visual effects and motions effects that cannot be achieved in Adobe Premier.

"A powerful industry standard tool"


What do you like about After Effects CC?

Everything about this program is exceptionally crafted and works extremely well. Features are updated often, new features are always being added, and the functionality never ceases to amaze even the best in the business. This is the software of choice for professionals in the film industry for a reason. There are alternatives that perform quite well, but nothing truly compares to the refined brilliance of After Effects, especially when coupled with other Adobe suite products. After Effects is easy enough for day-to-day motion graphics and titles, yet powerful enough for the most complex projects. There seems to be no end to what is possible to create - and having that tool set challenges me to grow as an artist. It also integrates beautifully with Premiere and Photoshop.

What do you dislike about After Effects CC?

In order to animate layered Illustrator files, I have to first go in and prep the file by un-grouping everything - which can be quite a process in some complex stock files. The workflow would be much smoother if Illustrator groups could import as pre-comps with layers inside of them like Photoshop files already do.

What have you been using it for and what problems did After Effects CC solve?

If you have the money to invest in the product, that's fantastic, but I'd suggest looking into a complete Creative Cloud suite subscription, as there are so many other products in there that can be helpful that compliment After Effects flawlessly. That said, however, the cost can be quite high, as the service is subscription based.

"After Effects is a great creator of flash animation!"


What do you like about After Effects CC?

After Effects is a professional video editing program, has professional functions in creating flash animation, either to the letters, or some object to give animated movement. In the Adobe AfterEffets Interfax we find a timeline plan that can be very useful, since we can make details for each layer of work and this makes the work more detailed. I like this program because I have been able to make videos with animation in movements, there are other editors that do not offer you the necessary tools as this professional program offers. I like the function of being able to export some fragments of other software from the same Adobe company, such as premiere and photoshop.

What do you dislike about After Effects CC?

One thing which I dislike is it required high end device to process and render the scene to make a video clip of it . otherwise its great tool to handle all the stuff under one software. Some times it takes too much to render the video. Compression of video is not here to achieve this we need to move our video from adobe after effect to adobe primer and lot of other things.

What have you been using it for and what problems did After Effects CC solve?

Thanks to this program I have been able to create some video that my clients ask me and sometimes the only tool with which I can create it is AfterEffect for its quality of rendering and for the great effects of profecionalidad that this great Software offers!.

"After Effects is the gold standard for motion graphics"

// Owner/Videographer at Pixel Puppy Productions

What do you like about After Effects CC?

After Effects Creative Cloud is hands down the best solution for creating motion graphics. There are plenty of templates and support documents to be found online, which makes it easy for new users to learn how to use After Effects.

What do you dislike about After Effects CC?

There is nothing I dislike about After Effects Creative Cloud. I’ve been using it for a long time and can’t imagine trying to complete my work without it. It works seemlessly with all the other Adobe Creative Cloud Software available and is a great tool for anyone to have!

What have you been using it for and what problems did After Effects CC solve?

I have been using After Effects to create all my motion graphics, especially lower thirds for video production. It is a tremendous tool that does so much more than just simple graphics. It is robust and something anyone in video or post production services should have and use.

"Animations and special effects of a professional level."

// Senior Project Manager at IKEA Group

What do you like about After Effects CC?

It has a very complete interface and very useful commands for the post production of videos, where you can animate and also add special effects and very well achieved filters, it is very useful when you already use other adobe tools and you complement them, ideal for intros and animated texts

What do you dislike about After Effects CC?

It takes a lot of time to learn the commands and tools, you should have a basic knowledge of video animation concepts, transitions, timeline and visual effects, the window of composition cost me enough to handle it correctly.

What have you been using it for and what problems did After Effects CC solve?

It is perfect when you produce an animated video to present a product or furniture and you can add texts and special effects, in addition to adding or removing objects and improving some graphic aspects.
