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.

Adobe After Effects CS6 is a powerful motion graphics and animation software that can be used to create unique animations, and add visual effects to videos. The biggest plus point of this software is that it is easy to learn and use.

One of the Most Powerful Programs That Adobe Has Created

By Christine Diaz

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
