From Adobe Ilustrator to After Effects

In my Digital Foundations class we recently started working with Adobe Illustrator and After Effects. Adobe Illustrator lets you create forms instead of only manipulating them like in Photoshop. You can professionally illustrate and color your ideas. Like Photoshop, Illustrator consists of layers and it is convenient to know how you want your illustrations to move and interact before you import the document into After Effects. After Effects lets you animate your illustrations. you can set up the time frame and add Effects to your piece. At this point I am learning about the settings in After Affects. It seems like the amount of affects and settings in these programs are endless. This allows creative thought and development in technology.
