A client I'm working for would like things to cue on click (like in old school powerpoint) for a project i'm working on.
An example being - a bear must pop up when an actor says a certain phrase.
Is there an easy way to do this in AfterEffects or Premier Pro?
Thanks in advance.
Sorry, but no. There is nothing in either application that allows, live, interactive inputs.
do you mean to make it interactive for a live presentation? no, not Ae or Premiere do interactive BUT you could render mp4 and use them in a software that creates slideshows. even with power point. here's an example: After Effects + PowerPoint on Vimeo the instructions are in the comments.
