Compositing with After Effects
One of the most tedious and time-consuming of any film, television, or video game post-production process is editing, but we love it. It is one (if not our most) favorite aspect of filmmaking. We see it as completing a puzzle. Sometimes, there are particular puzzle pieces that require a very unique touch. Some of these touches call for distinct and unique visual effects such as keying, tracking, compositing and animation. This is where After Effects comes into play.
After Effects is a digital visual effects, motion graphics, and compositing application developed by Adobe Systems and developed by the Aldus Corporation. Really, there isn't much that we cannot create with After Effects. We love it's simple use and user-friendly interface to aid us with cinematic motive titles, intros, to transitions, to animating titles, credits, and lower thirds. Start from scratch or, we can use with presets available right from the app. Setting anything in motion can be done with ease with an array of keyframe expressions.
After Effects is used by visual artists, animators, advertising agencies, video artists, video editors, visual designers, social media professionals, video producers, motion graphics designers, UX professionals, and animators. Gaining proficiency in After Effects comes from in-depth training and hands-on use and gaining proficiency in After Effects has become ever more demanding.
