I am a beginner in AE. I bought an after effects video project. now I want to edit it...but I need to edit the English version of AE !! (I have the German version)
I can simply change language in AE and then I have the English or is the English version different?
what can I do?
See this thread to force AE to English: Change language in After Effects CS5
As for editing, After Effects is NOT a video editing app. Premiere Pro is. After Effects is designed for creating shots or short sequences. If you want to edit a video that is longer than just a few shots then use Premiere Pro or other NLE. After Effects is for Compositing and Motion Graphics and that's about it.
