After Effect

Just wondering if I use Maya, is After Effect the best for compositing?

Not nessicarily the "best", but like any 3D application, there are 2D compositing apps that do different things.

So, it really depends on what your shot needs.

I personally like After Effects, but I'm thinking of getting Combustion when I get the money.

I own Commotion Pro v3, and it's outdated now due to a version upgrade, and an ownership change/buyout by Pinnacle Systems, but IT ROCKED for everything I needed at the time.

it's got a GREAT tracker, and roto-splines that are so good, that the now-defunct MILL FILM used it exclusivly to roto, and composite all the shots for THE GLADIATOR.

If you have compositing-specific questions, one of our newest members, Paul, has a compositing forum site called:
