Track faces with greater accuracy

The Face Tracker makes it easy to apply effects to select areas of faces. Use simple tracking to color correct or blur a face; track specific points to change eye color or mouth movements; or track measurements, such as how wide an eye is open. You can even export data to Adobe Character Animator.

Easily animate 2D characters

Give life to characters you create in Illustrator or Photoshop by acting out their movements in front of a webcam. Adobe Character Animator tracks your facial movements, lets you record dialogue or a voice performance and enables you to trigger actions with your keyboard.

I love adobe after effects. The program has nearly infinate possibilities. Now if they could solve the crash isses with cc shatter.

Ease of use 8 of 10 Functionality 9 of 10 Value for money 9 of 10 Overall score 9 of 10

Tight integration with Photoshop and Illustrator and one of the easiest compositors to understand and use (but they're all complicated). Uses a familiar layered timeline interface. A myriad of great 3rd party plug ins (3D, light filters, special fx etc), some of which cost more than the application! Pro version includes extra base filter pack.

I'd like it more if Adobe had included autosave with my version, but unlike other compositors AE rarely crashes and allows you to work to deadlines. Suitable for pros and hobbyists with plenty of spare cash!
