Company of Science and Art
|Fate||Acquired by Aldus|
Company of Science and Art (CoSA) was a small software company headquartered in Providence, Rhode Island. It was founded in 1990 by Greg Deocampo (also a member of the video art collective Emergency Broadcast Network), David Foster, David Herbstman, and David Simons; it operated for slightly less than three years.
However, during its brief existence, CoSA created the category-defining After Effects desktop animation and compositing program, releasing version 1.0 in 1992. In 1993, CoSA was acquired by Aldus; Aldus was in turn acquired by Adobe in 1994. The name is currently used by an unrelated visual effects company, CoSA VFX.
