Adobe After Effects is a modern tool for advanced video makers and animators. In the program you can do editing, work with dynamic images and effects. It is popular with professionals and keen amateurs.
The program is part of the Adobe ecosystem. You can use it without installing Creative Cloud. However, the ecosystem makes importing and exporting media files much easier.
In addition to cinema, Adobe Creative Cloud is used extensively by video bloggers. It supports third-party plugins, as well as the creation of 3D animations. A library of ready-made templates is a good help for beginners. There are forums and thematic groups on social networks: there are lessons on various topics.
Advanced users can give free rein to their imagination and do everything on their own. Adobe After Effects is capable of processing video clips up to 8K resolution. It can be loaded with virtual reality projects.
One of the benefits of the program is the support of third-party effects. You can import them and use them for your work: this is facilitated by fine-tuning. Not to get confused in several projects helps to mark the date and time.
The developers have managed to implement multithreading: calculation and processing of files has become faster. Preview mode has also been improved: GPU cores are accelerated. Working with .EXR files is 12 times faster (compared to previous releases).
