An Essential Tool for Motion Graphics Artist and Animators Out There

By Isay Almenanza

On Wednesday, June 18, 2014

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

Review

Adobe After Effects CS6 is the latest version of this classic software focused on animations and effects for videos. This version has significantly improved the motion graphics and cinematic effects. There have been huge enhancements made, such as the opportunity to keep one open project loaded on the cache whilst you are working on a second project.

The integration with other programs from the Adobe Suite has been improved, not only for Adobe Premiere, also for Illustrator. Now, you will have a dedicated command for creating shapes on vector layers. But the greatest improvement of this version is the new Ray-traced 3D rendering engine. This new engine will allow you to make designs in 3D easily and quickly. It also offers several new effects to apply such as a refraction index, transparency or reflection.

How to use this software

Once you download and launch Adobe After Effects CS6, you will see a window asking you whether you want to create a new project or open an existing file. For example, due to the integration with other programs the Adobe Suite, you will be able to edit and apply filters and templates to Photoshop images. You can deactivate this window and go directly back to the interface the next time you run it.

The interface is divided into different parts. On the left part of the screen you will find the project window. There, you will view your imported files and creations. In order to organize them, you can create as many folders as you want. The timeline is located at the bottom of the screen, and it displays your composition contents, duration, properties, etc. The preview window is in the center of the interface and will allow you to see how your project looks. Finally, on the right side of the screen, moving from the upper part to the lower one, you will find the tool panels you can configure at your will, the playback controls and the ‘Effects & Presets’ palette with a wide range of templates, filters and effects to apply to your composition.
