AFTER EFFECTS VS PHOTOSHOP
A little self-promo in After Effects. I find creating simple animation to be more flexible and superior in After Effects than Photoshop. After Effects can take animation to levels that seem impossible in Photoshop. I would only choose PS if working with stills. However, AE does not export GIFF files but you can easily open your QT movie in PS and export into a GIFF. For this project I used Illustrator to create and manipulate the typography, After Effects for animation and Photoshop to export into a GIFF file.
