What is Adobe After Effects?

Adobe After Effects is part of Adobe's Creative Suite line-up of programs, and is primarily used to create digital motion graphics and effects. After Effects is mainly used by motion picture and film studios in the post-production phase of a filmmaking and television production process. It has gained popularity in its wide feature set of 2D and 2.5D animation and graphics, visual effects compositing plus finishing, and even its media encoding and non-linear video editing tools. After Effects is layer-oriented, which makes it useful for keyframing, and is especially suited for extensive effects work.

The Adobe Creative Suite is a set of multimedia editing and web development tools created by Adobe and based from Macromedia's Studio suite. When Adobe acquired Macromedia, they rebranded the Studio suite as the Creative Suite. The Adobe Creative Suite Master Collection contains Photoshop Extended, Illustrator, InDesign, Acrobat X Pro, Flash Professional, Flash Builder Premium Edition, Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, Adobe Audition, SpeedGrade, Prelude, Encore, Bridge, and Media Encoder. It also integrates with Adobe's Digital Publishing Suite. There are several editions of the Creative Suite, one of which is the Master Collection which contains all applications of the Creative Suite line.
