Simple MP4s


I was hoping someone might be able to give me some advice. I'm currently working for a client who requires frequent pieces of graphic design for social media posts. I was hired as a graphic designer, but increasingly I've been asked to supply short animations. I had no real experience in this field, but as the animations were simple, I coped, using Photoshop's timeline and stop motion facilities. However, each subsequent animation is more complicated than the last, and now I'm spending half a day compiling frames in photoshop, when I know there are more appropriate programs out there. I need to learn how to tween etc.

What I'm asking is therefore, what would be the best package for me to learn? The animations I'm making usually involve photographic cutouts moving about the place, with spinning wheels etc. Mostly bitmap stuff.

Is After Effects good for this type of thing?
