First Pro or After effects?

I'm looking at the Premier Pro and Adobe After Effects. They both seem to be for video editing.

PP for hollywood or more advanced video editing and After Effects a smaller version for smaller products?

PP is for cutting and AE video than for the whole of the process from beginning to end?

What is best for each file formats? If I import in a format, is it better to leave/get PP or æ to switch the smoother changes file?


After Effects are for Visual effects, compositing and motion graphics.

A way of thinking about Premiere Pro is that it was designed to take several movies source and cut them apart and then rebuild their time. That's why video editors are often called "cutters". they based on time to the cutting of segments of films together to make a new and coherent movie.

After Effects, on the other hand is designed to take multiple images (including animated images) and mix them together on the screen at the same time. That's what "compositing." You use After Effects to make a matte painting of a sunset, that put behind an actor who had been shot against a green screen and then throw in a synthesis robot and the breath of laser eye of the robot. After Effects also has extremely powerful vector graphic and text animation tools, well beyond what Premiere Pro has.

After Effects and Premiere Pro, overlap and people come and go between them, using each of its strengths. One of the strengths of Premiere Pro is that it is much faster to work with in general.

  • How can I go to first Pro CS5 After Effects CS6? (Problem)

    Versions must be the same to make it work.  You will have to perhaps put the original clip in AE and when you're done, export off AE file for use in PP.

  • How to assemble. Photos ARW (A7sii RAW photos) in first Pro CC/After effects CC?

    Hi ya'll!

    So I've been taking a lot of RAW photos on my a7sii to create videos of time. The pictures come out as the. ARW file type.

    I now need to assemble the photos in one. MOV files (as I did with all the other RAW photo types) so that I can pass it on to my colorist.

    Does anyone have a suggestion on how to assemble the photos? I don't want to convert them to JPEG format, because I need my colorist to have the highest possible quality.

    I hope that this question is answered in the abyss without end of these adobe forums...



    Unfortunately it is not possible to import ARW files in first or Aftereffects. I had this problem a few months ago. I converted the ARW files with lightroom. If you find a solution to import the files directly in the first, please let me know!

  • Problem importing adobe first project in After effects CS6

    I have worked in first of Adobe and sequelae for quite a few years now and this problem is new to me.

    I work on a project After Effects CS6 and want to import a project first pro in After Effects. I'll-> file-> import-> adobe first project

    Select the project

    Select the sequence

    Now After Effects CS6 matter all files of the project first before pro in CS5, but now also matter at all in the form of sequences at the root in my Control Panel project and messes everything. Before she was generally nice and tidy with the same structure of records as the first pro project would have.

    But this isn't the main problem. When I opened the sequence on what to import and to work, some clips have been shortened up to 1 FRAME LONG at the end. These clips have a speed of 500% in first pro, but this has never been a problem before, after effects has ever before been able to translate changes in speed in first-> sequelae clips.

    Adobe creative that was imported is a promo of 60 s with various clips in different formats (Gopro h264, dv pal quicktime etc.). Images not exceeding not the amount just sequelae must manage. videfiles 15-20-30 seconds each.

    I've never had this problem before with first <>- aftermath.


    I found the solution!

    In my first adobe project that I tried to import, some of the clips have been "right click" and apply "scale to the size of the image.

    Each video clip that had "adapt to the size of the image' in my sequence first pro from adobe would incorporate as its own composition in After Effects, rather than just a videofile and some of the clips could be cut down to be invisible.

    So if you have a problem with a clip import does not correctly in a sequence of after-effects, check that "adapt to the size of the image" is not applied to the clip in first pro.

    I removed the scale to the size of the image in the project to create and everything is now fine in sequels.

    Sorry for the post.

  • Cannot install the Premier Pro and after effects CS2

    I'm having trouble installing Adobe CS2. I use the "no validation" version to because the software I bought doesn't validate not because he is too old. I was able to install all programs except for Premiere Pro and After Effects. I extracted the files for first Pro first because it's a zip file. On these two programs, opens the configuration and I confirm the English as the language, and it continues for about a second and then goes and closes completely. He will not continue the installation, it comes close. All other files that I downloaded from this page properly installed. Any ideas? I really need to use these two programs. Also, I need the Extras_2 because I the Premium version, but the list of files is only Extras_1.

    Here's an update: I found another download site and download these two files that does not have, and this time they installed properly, so I no longer need assistance in this case. Thanks to everyone who offered help!

    I use a TV regular ole plugged into the HDMI port on my graphics card to production and to see my work on a larger screen, thanks to pass mercury. 2014 CC gave me no problem. Make the same settings in CC 2015 and first works like a pro, but After Effects is a no-go. I tried to ensure that the window cross the edges of the screen, try it with or without first opened, with or without "disable in the background."

  • Why is 'Edit in Audition' greyed in Premiere Pro and After Effects?

    Since the launch of CC 2014 option in Premiere Pro and After Effects to 'Edit in Audition' is grayed out. Right-clicking on a clip in Premiere Pro is not an option for hearing. I can't send my compositions, sequences or clips to Audition for audio editing. I contacted Adobe Support staff earlier this evening. They suggested to go to my Mac system preferences and allow the root user, log out of my account, connect to the root user, stop and start in safe mode. None of these scenarios worked. He is always grayed out in the two user accounts.

    Is this a known issue? I even uninstalled and reinstalled the hearing. Still nothing. All my Adobe apps are updated. My Mac is updated. Yet once, never had this problem before.

    I'd appreciate any help!

    Thank you!

    See you soon,.

    I may have an answer for you, but do not know if my resolution will work for Macs.

    First of all, here is my system and the initial info. I use a work computer, OS is Windows 7. I've just upgraded to Adobe CC 2014 a week ago, and I also uninstalled previous versions of all my programs creative cloud after installing new versions (CC 2014 is not simply to update the previous version, it installs a new program and does automatically uninstall previous programs of CC). Not sure whether to for this resolution to work the uninstall.

    In any case, after I installed first Pro CC 2014 and 2014 CC hearing, the Clip edit in Adobe Audition command was available in the Edition in the Menu bar menu, but has been disabled in the context menu to the sequence (for the context menu, it was visible, but gray and disabled). When I tried to use the command in the Edit menu in the Menu bar, he gave me a dialog box fill and it has created a new folder (called "Adobe Audition to Exchange"). So, the command, when selected from the 'Edit' menu has obviously uses a different process from the command in the context menu. Anyway, I didn't want a new record created, or to fill a dialog, I wanted to just behave like he used to. In fact, when I right click on the sequence and select Edit Clip in Adobe Audition on the shortcut menu, it just opens the hearing and the audio waveform is visible.

    I was able to solve this problem and get the right click command works by reading a few articles on this same issue of Adobe CC (not CC 2014) and those to help understand how to solve this problem in Adobe CC 2014.

    Here's what I did:

    • I had to find my .sesx files in my system. They are NOT in the same place, as they were for the previous version of the CC (at least, they were not for me). I had to use the command search and find extensions of .sesx to locate.
    • Found under the path C: > users > Public > Public Documents > Adobe > hearing > 7.0 > model Session. Note that (for me), there is a folder called 6.0 at the same level as the record of 7.0 . I selected the 7.0 folder this folder contained the most recent set of files of .sesx. I checked the folder 6.0 and those are the .sesx of the previous version files, so I deleted this folder as a cleaning step.
    • I clicked on one of the. sesx files in the folder Templates of Session chosen then Open with on the shortcut menu. The Open with dialog box displays and provides a list of programs.
    • I selected Adobe Audition CC 2014 of the list of programs (you may need to browse to find it) and always use the selected program to open this type of fileselected. I then clicked on OK to submit the order of configuration and close the Open with dialog box.
    • I rebooted first Pro CC 2014 and the Clip edit in Adobe Audition command is now enabled in the context menu and worked properly.
    • I cried with joy... OK, not really, but I'm still peeved at ridiculous regression errors and lack of extensive testing of new versions of the software, so I'm glad the frustrating problems.

    Don't know if this will help you, or if you already solved your problem. Whatever it is, good luck!

  • Premiere Pro and After Effects start since December 2015 update

    Apparently I'm not the only one having this problem since Adobe put out a new update for these two programs a few days ago. I've updated, now Premiere Pro and After Effects launch. Not at all. Keeps giving an error message. Uninstall/reinstall does not help. Everything worked well until the recent updates and I've been a Cloud customer for two years now. Considering that this isn't the case just for me, but several others, it probably has to do with something in the update.


    Too bad, think the answer might be here.

  • Cannot download Premiere Pro and After Effects

    I downloaded Adobe Application Manager and it lists 13 applications, but it does not list Premiere Pro or After Effects.

    I went back to the download applications page and I click on Premiere Pro but down right navigation bar says aam://SAPCode=PPRO but nothing happens.

    I guess that's referencing the Application Manager, but the program is not listed.

    On the side of the MAO, he said 13 programs listed, but on the applications page, there are 17 programs.

    Is there another way to download the application?

    Can I go to Premiere Pro page and download the application as a member of cloud to Adobe?
