Most prior topics on this are 8 months or older and was wondering if anyone has come across anything recent.
After Effects runs $900+. WAX needs video in AVIformat to work and it looks to be in 4:3.
If you are working in 16:9 and want to exlpore the art of keyframing, burning downyour neighborshouse, meteor shower in your city park, muzzle flash from your car's headlights, and other effects, do you know if there are any packages out there for the buget minded (and thin walleted) that might work? I am looking for something beyond those 30 day free trials that I can actually take my time learning.
