It allows users to animate, edit, and compose media in 2D or 3D space with many different built-in tools and third party plug-ins which can be downloaded from the Internet depending on what type of plug in the user is looking for. It also provides individual attention to variables like parallax and also user adjustable angles of observation. Adobe After Effects is a layer-oriented program. Each individual media object like video clips, still images, audio clips, etc. runs on its own. In contrast, other Non-Linear Editing Systems use a system where individual media objects can occupy the same track as long as they do not overlap at the same time. This track-oriented system is more suitable for editing and can keep project files more simple. The layer oriented system that Adobe After Effects has is suitable for extensive video effects work and also key framing. Other compositing packages, especially the ones that employ tree or node workflows, such as Nuke and Fusion, are better suited to managing complex interconnected data flow within a composite. Adobe After Effects is capable of countering the problem somewhat by selectively hiding layers or by grouping them into pre-compositions. The main interface of Adobe After Effects consists of several panels. Three of the most commonly used panels are the Project panel, Composition panel, and the Timeline panel. The Project panel acts as a bin for compositions and imported still images, videos or audio footage items. Footage files in the Project panel are used in the Timeline panel, where layer ordering and timing can be adjusted according to the user. The items visible at the current time marker are displayed in the Composition panel. Compositions can be nested into other compositions. Adobe After Effects shares many of the same features with other Adobe programs, such as creating shapes that are defined by Bézier curves. Like Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator, After Effects can import and manipulate many image formats, filters, and adjustments. Adobe After Effects integrates with other Adobe programs such as Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Encore and Adobe Flash. Additionally, it works with third party 3D programs like Cinema 4D, LightWave 3D, and Autodesk 3D MAX.
