A Software for Creating Sophisticated Motion Graphics and Cinematic Visual Effects

By Pablo Conde Ferrer

On Friday, June 6, 2014

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

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.

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.
