Bloatware. Honestly. After buying the license, I found multiple instances of Cinema 4D installed as well. Did I ask for it? NO. Did they warn or even say it would be installed? NO. It's already a pain that you are forced to install Creative Cloud and all other stuff. It's cool if you use it, but it shouldn't be forced if you don't want to use it. Can't wait to find a proper alternative, like Affinity is to InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop.

When you buy one app, you should get one app installed. No more, no less.

Bloatware, when I bought After Effects they never ask me to install 7 cinema4d apps!! and 4! icons with different apps, why they fragment AF in 4 different icons/programs? i just need AF no other shits.

Best for particle simulations, camera tracking and visual effects.

This is the best application for particle simulations, camera tracking and visual effects in general. After Effects has a huge support community with plenty of tutorials and plugins (many are free) to keep you busy during winter months.

My beef is with the Creative Cloud's monthly subscription based license. Adobe had the audacity to sent emails to their clients explaining that users must upgrade to the current version or risk being sued for copyright infringement. In addition, older hardware has being phased out forcing clients to purchase the latest Windows 10 PC.

I shall continue to use CS5 for as long as possible or until Adobe abolishes this subscription based nonsense. Until then I absolutely refuse to upgrade to the latest version.

Its the gold standard for special effects industry

If you need a modelling program to go with it, I suggest using elements-3D, built by andrew kramer
