For Video Editing
Video editing: Joining pieces of one or movies together in time to make one movie, almost always after cutting out some of the durations of each. Video editing: cutting and re-ordering unaltered video and audio clips in time. The metaphor is horizontal.
1. Adobe Premiere
One of the best out there, believe me. With the industry-leading video editing software, you can edit virtually any type of media in its native format and create professional productions for film, TV and web.
2. HitFilm Pro
This one, is two-in-one. Composite, Edit & make Visual Effects, all these with 1 Softwares, that is HitFilm Pro 2017. Pro editing. Superpowered visual effects. Next-generation films.
3. For Visual Effects
Visual effects involve the integration of live-action footage and generated imagery to create environments which look realistic, but would be dangerous, expensive, impractical, or impossible to capture on film. Visual effects using computer-generated imagery have recently become accessible to the independent filmmaker with the introduction of affordable and easy-to-use animation and compositing software. In Short, you know that gun fires, blasts, smokes and woosh husshh yeaashsh suppa ?
1. After Effects
THE BEST OUT THERE. Period. Adobe After Effects is a digital visual effects, motion graphics, and compositing application developed by Adobe Systems and used in the post-production process of film making and television production. Among other things, After Effects can be used for keying, tracking, compositing and animation. It also functions as a very basic non-linear editor, audio editor and media transcoder. In Short, just as the paragraph says. x)
As I said above, this is for time saving, easy to use and very user friendly but after effects is some thing else, alien like. You can make great VFX with HitFilm but you can make amazing and outstanding VFX with After Effects and there are many reasons for it. There are a lot of user-made scripts and plugins also available for After Effects. Never mind, HitFilm is still good for beginners out there, they also post tutorials on YouTube for free.
This is kinda advance and you cant just learn this in a week or two, but you as long you have good sources and tutorials/courses you can make this in time. but still, this will take a lot of time. high-end PC is required for Modeling and Rendering.
1. Cinema 4d
Cinema 4D is the professional 3D package for your needs. If you want to create advanced 3D graphics but need a helping hand to ensure you create jaw-dropping graphics quickly and easily, then Cinema 4D is the choice for you. Despite being designed for advanced 3D, the extra tools found in Cinema 4D Studio are still designed to be user-friendly and intuitive. Generating advanced 3D effects such as hair is surprisingly easy and fast, with Cinema 4D doing much of the work for you.
2. 3DS MAX
3D modeling, animation, and rendering software. 3ds Max® 3D modeling and rendering software helps you create massive worlds in games, stunning scenes for design visualization, and engaging virtual reality (VR) experiences.
Houdini 16 enhances core modeling, rendering and animation tools while focusing on performance and scalability for Film, TV and Games. A new network editor along with viewport radial menus make Houdini more approachable for new artists and even more productive for TDs. New terrain-building, character rigging and shading workflows, and hundreds of new tools and improvements make this a must-have release.
This is an amazing software, highly recommended from me + its not that hard compared to above two in my opinion. Make sure to learn it of you want succeed as a VFX Artist.
For Photo Editing and Vector Graphics
1. Illustrator – Vector Graphics
2. Adobe Photoshop – For Photo Editing and Manipulation
As a VFX Artist, you’ll have to use Photoshop a lot. So make sure to learn it. The world’s best imaging and design app is at the core of almost every creative project. Work across desktop and mobile devices to create and enhance your photographs, web and mobile app designs, 3D artwork, videos, and more.
SFX – Sounds
You can get sounds from a lot of sites, you can also buy sounds and music for your videos. you can also get paid sounds effects and music from my site FOR FREE. x)
