Adobe tells me that they haven't sold a perpetual licence version of Adobe AE since 2017 and if I am to use it I need to subscribe to their bloody expensive Creative Cloud malarkey. As I already have standalone versions of PS Element and Premiere Elements and Lightroom - I'm not so inclined. Is there any way I can get AE for free/cheap/2nd hand? If there's a free alternative that can import the AE project file type, I'm all ears. All I want to do is take an AE template from envato market https://videohive.net/category/after-effects-project-files/logo-stings and add in my own images/change colours etc as needed to make a video sting for a YouTube channel.
