Title: Adobe Premiere vs after effects - for stock
Post by: izzikiorage on July 25, 2017, 13:09
I've been using after effects for editing my stock videos. Mainly stabilization, saturation bump up, some curves and then encoder to convert it to mp4.

Was wondering if premiere is better for this task? Especially if i need to do 4-5 clips in one go

In my opinion for stock footage AE is better, although AE and Premiere overlap in a lot of things, so Premiere can also be used.
Premiere is more effective if you want to put together many stock clips and do a short movie, especially if you plan to use music or other sounds.
But for individual clips without sound AE is more powerful

Thats what i also started off with. But seems that premiere is much better at color grading.

I really want something like a lighttoom for video.

I know that I don't answer to your question, but if you only need to color grade and stabilize, as alternative, you could also try the (free) DaVinci Resolve

Did give that also a shot. The free version is super hard to learn hence never even considered getting the paid version. Is it really better when handling multiple clips and doing stabilization and color grading?

After Effects for maximum control over single clips for stock.

Premiere for editing them together into a film. Premiere has easier access to scopes and stuff but I still prefer the control you get in AE for single clips.

Personally I like it a lot.
At the beginning it is not very simple to use because the system of nodes is not a very conventional approach, but you have tons of tutorials on You Tube.
Stabilization and tracker are extremely fast and gives excellent results.
The control of color is very fine and precise and offer you a lot of possibilities in one screen.
Editing more clips at once using the group fonction is very productive.
The hardest part is to change a little your mind comparing Resolve to other more traditional products as Premiere or Final Cut Pro.

Enough long but complete tutorial (basics) here:
