Adobe After Effects is a powerful video compositing software. Video compositing is the art of layering different visual elements on top of each other. These layers are then blended together to create a convincing ‘composited’ shot.

Think of adding an explosion to a stuntman jumping off a roof. Or adding a transformation and sparks to a human transforming into an animal. Or compositing a space scene where Tie fighters battle for the dominion of the universe. All of that can be done in tools such as Adobe After Effects.

Adobe After Effects is not the best tool if you want to work with 3D or create 3D effects. However, it is immensely powerful when it comes to compositing effects into your video footage. You can also create sleek animated titles, sci-fi HUD overlays and other exciting motion graphics.

A large ecosystem of plugins exists around Adobe After Effects. There are plugins for working in 3D, generating particle effects or easily giving your footage a cinematic look.
