Adobe After Effects (visual effects / motion graphics / video editing effects) is a digital motion graphics and compositing software published by Adobe Systems. Its main purpose is for film and video post-production.
Adobe After Effects (visual effects / motion graphics / video editing effects) is primarily used for creating motion graphics and visual effects, also known as "video animation"
After Effects allows users to animate video, alter, and composite media in 2d and 3d space with various built-in tools and third party plug-ins.
Both After Effects and some non-linear editing systems (NLEs) are layer-oriented, meaning that
each individual media object (video clip, audio clip, still image, etc.) occupies its own track.
