WHY USING AFTER EFFECTS IS A GREAT COMPANION TO YOUR EDITING EXPERIENCE
It takes many years to learn the skill of editing footage.Usually, you can start as a beginner learning first Premiere Pro or another like final cut. You might not think about going into After Effects and learning what seems to be at first glance a hard and confusing interface. But after a while If you choose to take the dive because you realize you want your videos to have something more added to it. It will be a great companion to your editing experience.
Of course, you can do the same thing in Premiere pro. However, After Effects is more powerful with even more options and tools for your video. Like if you had a scene where you wanted a big explosion in the background but not film it, you can create and add fire to the clip in aftereffects. Or for example If you shot a scene or a shot of person speaking with a greenscreen in the background, you can then take it into After Effects, composite it out and from there add any background you prefer.
Learning After Effects takes time and patients like all things. You won’t be able to understand what it offers in one night. It will take you years but learning After Effects will be the most pleasing reward you’ve had yet for your editing experience.
