‘Act of Valor’ Made with Premiere Pro, After Effects and Other Adobe Tools

Here’s a short video that takes you behind the scenes of ‘Act of Valor‘, which was shot on the 5D Mark II, and shows how Adobe products were used to help make the film.  I knew that Adobe products were used quite a bit on the film; however, I was still surprised to hear that most of the visual effects in the film were done in After Effects.

It looks like most/all of the Adobe products that Bandito Bros used can be found in Adobe Production Premium.
