One more thought to the mix....

I often find the AE tutorials that say "then apply Tinderbox filter such-and-such" to be similarly frustrating. While I'm sure those extra plug-ins are awesome (I have a few plugs that I use all the time), it's a little disappointing to be reading a tutorial that requires them.

That said, I still read the tutorial and see if I can figure a way to do the same thing without the extra plugs.

You can often do everything you might do in Photoshop within AE, but sometimes it's just so much faster to do it in Photoshop. Same thing is true of these external plugs.

I agree with the above posts that learning Photoshop would be a great boon to you as a motion graphic person, but you absolutely don't have to. It just makes life a lot easier.

By the way: yours was a well written post that brought up something without raising ire of the folks who love Photoshop.
