    Hi MacRumors,
    I am starting to get into video editing and photography and all of that good stuff. I already know most of the software I'm using but I would like one that could do effects like in this video:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bBTC6Rd78mc
    at 0:09 and other similar effects used throughout the video. So is there a program that can do that other than Adobe After-Effects, that is compatible with my mac?
    EDIT: Sorry if this is in the wrong section, I'm new to MacRumors.

    I'm pretty sure you can do stuff like this in Photoshop CS5.

    Everything Adobe is compatible for mac. After effects will run just fine on it.

    You'll need a motion graphics program such as Motion (comes with Final Cut Studio) or After Effects.

    While it is possible to do this on a frame by frame basis with Photoshop, it wouldn't be easy. Doing this in Motion or After Effects is trivial.
