I'm working on a video with some friends, and I've got Magix Movie Edit Pro 17 HD. So far I've liked it, it does alot of the stuff I want to do (fades, transitions, green screen, etc), but I've been on Youtube looking at some of the crazy special effects people are doing with Adobe After Effects.
I don't want to spend that much for Adobe After Effects, and this is totally a hobby vs something I want to invest in. SO rather than go whole hog and get After Effects, it looks like alot of those can be done in Adobe Premiere Elements.
Before I splurge and buy that, curious how easy they are to do in Premiere Elements? I know it will take some time, and I've been looking at tutorials for the approach with those things. If I get Adobe Premiere Elementsm will I be able to do glowing eyes, mask my eyes with flame behind them, fire lasers, make energy blasts, etc?
THe other option I saw was to get something called Effects Lab Pro, from FX Home. That looked like it did exactly what I wanted, but was more expense (I can get Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements combined for less).
Thanks for any help! Just want to make sure I don't blow my cash on the wrong package. Thanks!
