What is After Effects
After Effects is a video editing and staging software produced by Adobe, used in the post-production process of filmmaking.
It was originally created by David Simons, David M. Cotter, David Herbstman, Daniel Wilk, and Russell Belfer and released in 1993. It allows users to achieve cinematographic special effects of a quality and degree of sophistication that was previously reserved for professional cinema studios.
After Effects can be used for tracking, compositing, keying, and animation.
It is frequently used with video editing software, such as Adobe Premiere. In 2019, the software won an Academy Award for scientific and technical achievement.
