This is a software that is very closely related to the adobe Photoshop software and it is basically used for editing images and also photographs. This is like furthering what you been able to do in the other versions of adobe Photoshop cs5 or also adobe Photoshop version cs6 and that is why it is being called after effects and here you can be able to apply filters to the images that you have been able to create and also you can be able to edit them and make them to your desired choice. You can also be able to import the files that you had made in the previous versions of the adobe Photoshop software and I mean this is great because you do not get to lose any information from your previous works.


The following are the features for this software

One of the Most Powerful Programs That Adobe Has Created

On Tuesday, June 17, 2014

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.


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


  • Not much new except 64 bit

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.
