After Effects is one of the great innovations ever to be made available to the hungry masses.  One could be down to one's last box of Ramen Noodles and still, with AE, be able to create elaborate video special effects approaching anything seen in a Star Wars movie or any dynamic motion graphics ad.  Yeah, yeah, I know,  if one just stopped paying the monthly fee for the Adobe Cloud Suite, one could afford sixty extra boxes of Ramen Noodles, to which I say that a human cannot live by cheap, favorless food alone! Here are a few samples of what I have created with After Effects.
