In addition to this, you can manipulate moving and still images using hundreds of effects such as stylize, distort, and shatter. Moreover, the program allows you to create grids, radio waves, 3D particles, film grain, fractal noise, and more. Its amazing timesaving tools enables you yo start projects quickly with animation presets and behaviors when creating common animation elements, such as animating text in and out, creating synthetic backgrounds, and more.
