How After Effects panels relate to Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign
At its core, After Effects is a design tool — and it works just like other Creative Cloud design apps you are already familiar with. In fact, aside from a few naming differences, the After Effects workflow for file linking works the same as InDesign and Illustrator. And After Effects layer effects and non-destructive smart filters work exactly like Photoshop.
