Adobe After Effects Alternatives

Arguably one of the best video effects editors in the business, Adobe After Effects provides users with a robust suite of tools and documentation to enable both novice and professional video editors to do what they need to in order to create stunning visual effects for video and film.

Alternatives with a similar workflow include HitFilm Pro (which has a free option available), Blackmagic Design Fusion, and NUKE.

For more especially purposed programs that are concentrated on 3D modeling, screen capturing and recording, and advanced motion tracking instead of post-processing and video effect editing, you've come to the right place!

Adobe After Effects alternatives are mainly VFX Software but may also be Motion Graphics Software or Video Editors. Filter by these if you want a narrower list of alternatives or looking for a specific functionality of Adobe After Effects.
