    Exclamation Best software for editing text effects?

    I need to edit a video similar to this one for work, but this is the first video my company has done like this so we need to purchase software.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0eUeL3n7fDs

    Basically, I need to be able to manipulate text and some simple graphics in a variety of ways. In the past I've used After Effects for videos such as this (a bit overkill, I know), but that's no an option with my new company. I need to find another program that is relatively inexpensive and will let me manipulate various characteristics of text.

    Thanks for the help!

    Blender would be freeware.

    I would have thought if you are already familiar with After Effects that would be an ideal choice for this type of video. Thinking of initial purchase cost over the time it would take you to source, purchase and learn a new piece of software. It's simple economics.

    Or don't they think your time has any value ?

    @XXRay; I thought Blender was a 3D animation/modelling software?

    @Midnight Blue: I agree that buying AE would be the easiest. The problem is that I'm a summer student and this is my last week, and my boss is on vacation. No one else wants to make such a costly decision while he's away, and there's a huge rush on this project so we have to make a decision now. :/

    I'll keep petitioning for AE, but some alternatives would be appreciated.

    You may be better off using something like a free trial of AE or can you just get a months subscription of their cloud service ?

    That's a good point; I totally forgot about their free trials. Thanks!
