Overall Satisfaction with Adobe After Effects

We use Adobe After Effects to edit and create videos for several social media platforms. Our marketing department uses After Effects to create compelling video for Facebook, Instagram, TikTok & YouTube ads among others. Since video is king on social media right now, After Effects has been essential to building our current ad campaigns.
  • It is extremely efficient at creating videos with the best effects.
  • It is easy to use once you learn how the program functions.
  • It offers more ways to edit video than other software I've used.
  • There are plugins that don't work with After Effects at times.
  • There is definitely a learning curve. It is not very intuitive.
  • Efficient.
  • Helps us produce professional looking video.
  • Allows our brand to be seen via video as opposed to static image.
  • After Effects has cut video editing time in half, so I'd imagine it's made a positive impact financially.
I find Adobe After Effects to be superior to iMovie and Final Cut Pro in that I am able to do much more with the software. It isn't as limiting as the other two. I also like that it isn't an Apple product. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of Apple. There is a bigger learning curve with After Effects, but once you get the hang of it, there's really no comparison.

After Effects is best suited for those who are experienced in video editing software as there is definitely a learning curve. That being said, After Effects is great for large productions or small, quick videos that you want to look professional. You are able to fine-tune your video much better in After Effects than most other software. After Effects is less appropriate in situations where minimal editing is needed.
