My very first editing software that I ever laid hands on was Final Cut Pro. I learned it at school. I never new anything about After Effects until I started watching videos on YouTube.
I was silly enough to think that I can do anything I wanted on Final Cut until my friend turned me towards Adobe software. I was instantly hooked and the amount of tutorials available on YouTube made my life easier.
I’m very happy to see my progress after a year and it’s great to see companies such as Video Copilot and Red Giant create awesome plugins that just make After Effects better. I’m grateful for Adobe and their great business and there is no turning back!
