Race Around the Track: 20 Years of After Effects

Adobe After Effects is celebrating its 20 year anniversary. I’ve only been using it for 17 of those years, but I’m pretty sure I’ve packed about 100 years of use into that time.

After Effects is my go-to creative tool for almost everything I do, from designing the user interface of Magic Bullet Looks 1.0, to crafting visuals for my films, to creating my Christmas cards. I was delighted to be able to sit down with Adobe’s Michelle Gallina and tell the story of how I came to meet this creative partner that I’ve relied on almost every day since.

The story I didn’t tell is how happy I am to have become friends with so many members of the team that makes After Effects. A heartfelt congrats to the amazing team of Daves and Non-Daves at the plabt. Here’s to another 20 years of me giving you a hard time.

I follow you since quite a long time now but didn't knew about your background.Wow...
Congratulation for keeping your "out of school" philosophy on creation ,
the future is guerilla filmmaking

Great to see the old tool make it to 20 in such good standing. Been using it since 1995 as an apprentice animator and professionally since 2000.

It is probably the piece of software I use most. A canvas with limitless possibilities. A true Swiss army knife for anyone in compositing and VFX.

Keep pressing them on Stu, maybe we can get that algorithm of de-blurring stills in PS which was hinted at MAX conference and incorporated for motion in AE for the next release.

Congrats on your career and your influence on such a great software.
