I am with Harm on this. While there is overlap, for NLE work, it's PrPro, and for smaller graphics animation, it's AE. Yes, there is that overlap, but I keep to PrPro, until I need to go to AE. Some of the "similar" Effects are easier in one vs the other.
Just a few comments,
To put it in another way, Word and Excel both belong to the Office Suite, like PR and AE belong to the Production Studio.
Word and Excel are completely different tools, but there is overlap. You can create tables in Word, and you can have text in Excel. You can have footnotes in both.
The same with PR and AE.
Good analogy. Why did I not think of that? [Sounds of forehead being slapped should be inserted here, so long as they are not © material.]
Thank You gentlemen for the replies !
as i noticed AE gives us more control over the effect controls or i should more advanced control than Premiere !
what are some of the thing you can't do in Premiere, which you CAN do in AE ? few important ones if you don't mind !!
From another angle...
Premiere is a motion image Editor and you work in realtime.
After Effects is a Compositor (like a Photoshop supercharged) and you can not work in real time.
Premiere works with audio and video whereas its difficult to work with both in AEFX.
Have a play and it soon become apparent what each of the applications is best suited at. (Note: they are complimentary tools to be used in conjunction)
BTW - some of the plugins work in each application. Not all though.
what are some of the thing you can't do in Premiere, which you CAN do in AE ?
Aside from the plug-ins that are only available for AE, I think one of the easiest differences to grasp is what you can do with titles. AE is far superior for creating dynamic titles. Premiere titles are fairly static by comparison.
The Animation (on top of page by view and effect) might be be something that is not used or seen with Premiere ?
I have no idea what you're asking.
As Shooterz says, "Have a play" - meaning, you are going to have to use each program to see for yourself how they differ.
So, for example, do this tutorial for premiere (or any other):
And do this for After Effects.
I've picked one for each that shows its most relevant strengths - video for Premiere and motion graphics for AE.
Thanks Stan for the very helpful links , appreciated !!
