After Effects by Adobe is one of the best motion graphics and animation software today, and it has a large user base. I would say it is like the Photoshop for videos. For those who are newbie to After Effects CS6, the fundamentals are quite easy to understand. Its interface is quite a mix of Premiere and Photoshop. The layout in this program is somewhat unchanged; of course you can still modify your workspace whatever you would like. So I think experienced users of the prior versions will not have a steep learning curve.

What I also like about After Effects CS6 is that, it added Extrude that makes 3D extruded text much easier. Extrude also gets rid of the requirement for separate plug-in and also save you from crashing. In addition, Track Camera is a splendid new feature. When it is employed to your handheld footage, Track Camera produces key-frames around the camera’s movement.

Overall, After Effects CS6 is a must have for anyone who wishes to do motion graphics. The price maybe expensive to others but it is an excellent value for your money and it will benefit you in the long run.

Pros

  • It has excellent new features
  • It has a better performance

Cons

  • The price is a bit high

Adobe After Effects software is the market leader in creating special effects for graphics and moving images. It's like Photoshop for video. It has tools that are similar to popular image editor from Adobe, just adapted to video.For those familiar with the last versions of it, you will find that not much has changed. If you are working in film and broadcast or delivering work online and to mobile device, this software enables you to create blockbuster visual effects and groundbreaking motion graphics.

For those new to this software, it might seem intimidating at first. The basics of the program are moderately easy to pick up, while absolute mastery of the software could take a lot of time. I have been using it for 5 years or more, and I still end up watching online tutorials almost every other day to study new tricks. If you want to make your video more interesting and look better, then this software is right for you.

Pros

  • The graphic design ended up pretty well
  • This software is very easy to install

Cons

  • Every time I tried to add an effect or anything, it crashes

Adobe After Effects CS6

One of the Most Powerful Programs That Adobe Has Created

By Christine Diaz

After Effects is a user friendly software tool. This software is one of the expensive video editing programs available on the market. For all video editors that have been mastering the basic platforms of video editing and they want to take a step forward to pro video editing, well I can say that this program is good for them. I think, once they get used to its interface, using this software will become easier.

Moreover, this After Effects CS6 is available at approximately 250 dollars. Very expensive right? If you want the whole production, including the Adobe Photoshop CS6 and Adobe Premiere CS6 and many more, I think you will pay 1,600 for that. The price may seem very pricey, but it pays for itself by the time all is said and done. All in all, I like this program. Adobe offers everything a video editor needs to make a professional video production.

Pros

  • Massive 64 bit performance gains
  • Roto Brush tool is very cool

Cons

  • Not much new except 64 bit

In my opinion, Adobe After Effects CS6 is a significant release that has something for every After Effect user. This version has an impressive list of new features and performance enhancement. If you are new to this software, you will notice that the basics of AE CS6 are quite easy to understand. Its interface is quite a combination of Photoshop and Premiere.

I like the major update to Global Performance Cache, it can now store on a scratch disk each layer’s render files, so changes are applied quickly, and playback will be instant. You can also set how much storage will consume for the Global Performance Cache in your preferences.

After Effects CS6 is a vital tool for anyone who wants to do motion graphics, especially for filmmakers who are integrating any graphic management in their work. Though, the price could be expensive but I am positive it will be a good run for your money.

Pros

  • No longer need to re-render cached items
  • It has a list of new features

Cons

  • Needs additional 3D shapes library

After Effects CS6 is a digital action graphics and compositing software built by Adobe Systems. This program is usually used in television production and post-production filmmaking. It can also be used as a basic non-linear editor.

Moreover, this software is better than anything out there. It shares many features and upgrades, such as creating squares, circles and free form shapes.
