There’s nothing you can’t create with After Effects.

Animators, designers, and compositors use After Effects to create motion graphics and visual effects for film, TV, video, and the web.
  • Small-screen productions. Epic proportions.
  • Roll credits. Spin words. Twirl titles.

    Create animated titles, credits, and lower thirds. Start from scratch or with one of the animation presets available right inside the app. From spin to swipe to slide, there are countless ways to make your text move with After Effects.

  • Explosive effects. Mind-blowing results.

    Combine videos and images to send a UFO across the sky, blur out a logo, or create an explosion — the possibilities are endless. After Effects has hundreds of effects to get just the look you want, from adding fog to changing colors to making it snow.

  • Go big on the big screen.
  • Any camera. Any format.
  • Get animated.

    Set anything in motion using keyframes, including logos, shapes, and cartoons. Add sound for really amazing results.

  • Plays well with others.

    After Effects works together seamlessly with other Adobe apps. Edit comps and immediately see how they look in Premiere Pro CC with Adobe Dynamic Link. Easily import work from Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC, and Audition CC. And use Team Projects to collaborate with editors no matter where they’re located.
