Adobe After Effects is an incredibly powerful package that you can use to produce stunning special effects for your videos. The app offers a comprehensive suite of tools giving you creative freedom when it comes to video editing. Sure, it may take a while for you to learn how each function works, but the time you spent mastering the app is definitely worth it.

Adobe After Effects’ video editing tools is considered a standard in the video industry. Whether for broadcasting or film, or simply for online use, its special effect suite can deliver. And since it is now a part of the Adobe CC suite, it seamlessly integrates with the rest of Adobe’s products. With this, you can add unique touches to your effects in other Adobe suites, such as Illustrator and Photoshop.

Whether you’re working in broadcast and film or delivering work online and to mobile devices, Adobe After Effects CS5.5 software enables you to create groundbreaking motion graphics and blockbuster visual effects.

Explosive effects. Mind-blowing results
Combine videos and images to send a UFO across the sky, blur out a logo, or create an explosion — the possibilities are endless. And there are hundreds of effects to get just the look you want, from adding fog to changing colors to making it snow.

Get animated
Set anything in motion—from logos to shapes to cartoons—with keyframes or expressions. Or use presets to kick-off your designs and get unique results.

Plays well with others

Advanced puppet tools for mesh sculpting
Mesh sculpting tools like Advanced and Bend pins let you precisely twist, bend, curve, and scale your animations.

Get depth passes from native 3D elements
Apply depth effects such as Depth of Field, Fog 3D, and Depth Matte so elements look natural — or use depth data to simulate 3D looks.

Supercharge your animation flow
Work faster with a new JavaScript expression engine and get up to a 6x boost in performance. Write expressions with a new editor that makes creating expressions more accessible.

Responsive Design — Time

Capture inspiration everywhere
Capture inspiration and create assets wherever you are using mobile apps like new Adobe Hue CC and Adobe Shape CC. Then, bring your assets into the software to create rich motion graphics and effects.

Perfect while you preview
Create without interruptions now that the app lets you adjust a composition’s properties and even resize panels without stopping playback.

More accurate face tracking
Use the new Face Tracker to apply effects to select areas of faces. Color-correct or blur, track measurements, or track points to change things like eye color.

Breathe life into 2D characters

Access all your After Effects assets anywhere with CreativeSync
Adobe CreativeSync keeps everything you need up to date and at your fingertips across your desktop, web and mobile apps. It automatically syncs your Looks, colors, images, Adobe Stock assets, settings, metadata and more.

Put your ideas in motion–Bring together footage of virtually any size and format, photographs, and 3D renders with text, vector artwork, and music — and make it all come alive. Handle complex compositing projects with new efficiency thanks to native 64-bit operating system support. Create polished productions–Get higher production values. Polish your productions with professional effects, hundreds of animation presets, precise tracking and keying controls, professional color support, and much more. Add animation and interactivity–Craft sophisticated, professional animations that can be rendered as FLV files for your Web site. Or import your entire composition into Adobe Flash Professional, where you can add interactivity.

As with other Adobe design products, Adobe After Effects comes with a very complicated package. Users, even professionals, will need hours of study and use before they can become competent with it. But once mastered, the app’s choice of special effects and template will give you endless creative options. If you are familiar with Adobe Premier, you will find Adobe After Effects’ interface familiar and logically organized.

Adobe After Effects, like all Creative Cloud suite, needs an on-going subscription to the Creative Cloud. But this means you can edit on the move, and your work will always be in synced and backed up. The disadvantage, however, is that you are locked into the subscription model.
