    Alternative to After Effects
    I've just been informed that After Effects does not work properly with the new Intel Mac's yet, and that it will run very slow. Does anyone know of any good alternatives that will run properly on a new Intel Mac?

    There is no alternative to AE... this program was written by God and that's all there is to it. :black:

    Apple Motion is decent for alot of the graphics and animation things you normally would use AE for... if you have a fast enough machine. Apple Shake is an unbelievable program for the compositing side if you don't mind the rough learning curve on it. I think Avid has a program they were trying to pit against AE but I don't believe it was for Mac.

    Basically you're not going to replace AE... it's a staple of the industry. Whatever the problems are with the Intel Macs I'm sure they will be corrected as soon as possible.

    I've tried several of the "alternatives" to AE, but none of them actually are. Sadly, Intel Mac owners like myself are stuck dual booting to windows to use AE until the next version comes out.

    Devastated!

    I've used combustion before which is rather good but I very much doubt that will run on an Intel Mac either.

    What about Quark? Apple just dropped the price down to 500 from 3000 or something

    Isn't Quark a desk top publishing package? :confused:

    But not to worry...I just bought my Dad's old G5 and got AE up and running on that!
