Hey Adobe Support Community, 

 

I am currently editing a personal project and I am not really sure whether to use Premiere Pro or After Effects for Transitions. I am aware of the fact that Premiere Pro is for EDITING, whereas After Effects is for COMPOSITING (effects, etc.), but how about transitions? I'm not talking about built in presets in Premiere Pro, but manually making them from scratch. 

 

For example, there are many tutorials BOTH for Premiere Pro and After Effects when I, for instance, search for glitch transitions. So, which one is better for a smoother workflow? Or does it come down to personal preference?

 

Thank you very much!

roughly: use premiere pro to create video.  use after effects to "enhance" to an existing video.

After Effects has a higher learning curve.

What is your skill level in each?

First of all, thank you for replying

I guess I'm new to both of them. I was just wondering which of those two is a better option to make transitions in general? 🙂

Lead editors are likely to use Premier Pro for most everything.  And After Effects is often used by the post production team.  So depending on where you are in the project food chain, you may gravitate to one tool over another.  But ultimately, it comes down to personal preference.

 

If variety is important, I think there are a lot more transition packs available for After Effects than Premier Pro.   So that could be another thing to consider.
