Adobe After Effects CS5

I have never really been a huge fan of editing but i have recently really started to like it, so i heard that a very good type of software was Adobe After Effects, so i went and had a look at some youtube videos and looked around google for some helpful tips on it and i liked the look of some of the features it had.

I Downloaded it the other week now and i'm really getting into it, i like the style and having watched a few youtube edits before buying, i realised it is fairly easy to pick up and once you get into it, its a good hobby to have. Really enjoying it and was thinking of looking at getting more editing software, maybe looking at sony vegas but the money is expensive for it so i may just see how i do with this for a bit, just wanted to know aswell if anyone has had any experience with sony vegas 9.0 if they could leave a comment maybe just saying what you thought of it and if it is worth the cost of it, or do you think i am better off keeping with AAE CS5 for now ?
Thanks for reading :)

  1. CS5 is a powerful bit of kit... but if you put in the time to learn how to use it then you can achieve some wonderful things

  13. I used to use After Effects to make some 2D Anime. It's really effective for scaling, animating clips, and adding special effects. For video overlays and other things, I would use a simpler package that performs better though. You need to use After Effects in tandem with Premiere in order to do some serious editing with sound.
