Studio 4Available in suites three and four, a Bill Picture offers SFX, compositing and animation services using the latest Adobe After Effects CS5 and Apple Motion products.

Adobe After Effects is a digital motion graphics and compositing software published by 
Adobe Systems. Its main purpose is for film and video post-production.
Adobe After Effects is primarily used for creating motion graphics and visual effects.
It allows users to animate, alter and composite media in 2D and 3D space with various built-in tools and third party plug-ins. Also possible with After Effects, are 2D1/2 animations projects. A 2D1/2 animation project consists in pushing Adobe After Effect to the limit by animating photos and/or graphics in a 3D fashion, in order to reach a full 3D look result (like those you can watch in the 'galleries' section). The obvious advantage of this technique is a much lower cost and a faster execution (no 3D modeling process) with no comparison with the costs and deadlines required for a full 3D project. Of course, some projects still require a full 3D execution. But very often, for an equivalent result, it is not the case.

Apple Motion is a motion graphics and compositing application similar in some ways to After Effects. With version 3, Apple added 3D compositing, vector paint, and motion tracking to Motion's toolbox. This added power, plus the GPU accelerated nature of Motion, allows it to be seen as a competitor to the more established packages from Adobe and Discreet. Features of Apple Motion include the ability to create custom particle effects (as well as using pre-built ones) and to add filters, effects and animations in real time.
