Binski, I agree with Sarge



I agree with Sarge. AFX is the mega-deep-end for compositing software and there’s only one that goes way deeper than that called ‘Nuke’.

For a teen I would suggest Adobe Elements (Premiere & Photoshop) or Sony Vegas Movie Studio. They won’t cost you an arm and a leg and they have some good intermediate tools for the kid to learn. Before you get anything, make sure his computer meets the basic system requirements to run the software.
