    Post Adobe After Effects

    So in my CD III class we were given one week to learn after effects and animate one of the companies logo's we designed for the first assignment of the semester. No time to go down the rabbit hole but it's passable for such a tight schedule.

    What is the point in learning after effects to make something you could have done in Flash way faster?

    Just curious, not judging the quality of the animation.

    A question, havent people been moving away from adobe nowadays because of their new subscription Adobe Creative Cloud model?
    Basically they can squeeze you every year with fees and change it however they like and you have to put up or shut up.

    Professionals are married to adobe basically so it has become join the cloud or lose to the competition. I pay less for creative cloud than having to buy adobe design premium every year. Hollywood movies are edited with after effects before release, everything printed relies on an in-design file and digitally the majority of e-pubs are created in In Design. Sometimes frames from a movie are imported into photoshop then returned to after effects. All of that gives adobe allot of control over the creative industry. Raising the price to a point where it becomes non-profitable for a creative professional would hurt Adobe though, so while the threat exists it does not make sense to go through with it. It is like

    In the creative market, all the ad agencies, design agencies, freelance creatives, professional printers etc would have to say the hell with it "worldwide". There are alternatives but no plans to switch.

    Flash will produce to a certain level adquate for web, after effects and some other products will produce up to cinematography level.

    Am I any good with flash? Nah, I hate it

    Even if you are eventually going to use software it should be drawn or storyboarded beforehand so you have a starting point and direction.
