Adobe After Effects CC is part of Creative Cloud™. That means you have access to all the latest updates and future releases the moment they’re available. Sharpen your skills and master new tools with a rich library of training videos. And Creative Cloud is integrated with Behance, so you can share your projects and get immediate feedback from creatives around the world.
Live 3D Pipeline
Objects and scenes from popular 3D modeling and animation software CINEMA 4D can be used directly as footage inside After Effects CC without rendering first. This eases roundtripping between the programs and opens up numerous creative possibilities.
Refine Edge tool
It’s the end of hard matte lines. Keep the details when separating complicated foreground elements like frizzy hair or motion-blurred edges from complex backgrounds. This means you can create natural-looking composites without keying specially shot footage.
Warp Stabilizer VFX
A major upgrade to the much-loved Warp Stabilizer, VFX adds the ability to choose which objects within a scene get stabilized, reverse a stabilization, and preserve a scene’s original scale to fix tricky shots such as aerial fly-throughs.
3D Camera Tracker
The 3D Camera Tracker makes it possible to reproduce the original camera movement in a scene so you can add new layers — including video and text layers. It also now features much-requested Track Optimization, so you can refine tracking points over time.
Global Performance Cache
Create more in less time, even in high-resolution projects. With Global Performance Cache, your previews are saved and ready when you are, even if you close a project and open it later. Duplicate compositions and undo edits without waiting for After Effects to catch up.
Optimized and accelerated
Inspiration doesn’t like to wait. That’s why After Effects crunches pixels using multiple processors and has improved support for NVIDIA GPUs. It’s a full 64-bit application that uses all the RAM your OS allows, for caches and to render multiple frames simultaneously.
After Effects CC (2018) New Features:
Animate motion graphics, such as charts and graphs, using imported data. With custom schemas, third-party partners can write data that can be used by others to generate motion graphics.
Add virtual reality effects to your 360/VR videos without creating unwanted distortions at the poles or artifacts along the back seamline. Effects include Gaussian blur, color gradients, chromatic aberration, de-noise, digital glitch, glow, fractal noise, and sharpen.
Immersive Video Titling and Graphics
Instantly format graphics, text, images, or other video clips to look correct in a 360 video.
VR Comp Editor
Using a view window rather than working directly with 360/VR footage lets you edit from the same perspective you see when the video is played back in a headset or on a smartphone.
Convert 360 footage into a 3D cube map format to easily do motion tracking, remove objects, add motion graphics and visual effects, and more.
Create VR Environment
Automate the creation of necessary compositions and camera relationships to create a 360/VR authoring environment for infographics, animated sequences, abstracts, and more.
Easily switch between editing formats and export to a variety of formats including: Fisheye, Cube-Map Facebook 3:2, Cube-Map Pano 2VR 3:2, Cube-Map GearVR 6:1, Equirectangular 16:9, Cube-Map 4:3, Sphere Map, and Equirectangular 2:1.
VR Rotate Sphere
Easily adjust and rotate your 360 footage to level horizon lines, align viewpoints, and more.
VR Sphere to Plane
See your footage in a perspective-based view similar to what it would look like with a headset even if you’re not wearing one.
Expression access to mask and shape points
Animate your graphics like never before. Link masks and shape points to other masks, shapes, or layers with expressions without animating frame by frame. Work with one or multiple points and control handles, and apply new data-driven features.
Enhanced 3D pipeline with Cinema 4D Lite R19
Work in 3D right inside After Effects with Cinema 4D Lite R19. Get viewport improvements with enhanced OpenGL and updated Cinema 4D Take System, support for Parallax Shader, Vertex Color, and BodyPaint Open GL, and the ability to import FBX2017 and Alembic 1.6.
Render layer transforms and motion blur on the GPU.
Keyboard shortcut mapping
Find and customize keyboard shortcuts quickly using a visual map.
Helpful start screen
Speed through project setup and jump into editing with a new, intuitive start screen that also includes easy access to CC Learn tutorials.
Auto-saves in Team Projects
Check when auto-saves of your edits were made. Easily revert to a previous auto-save or create a new team project from an auto-save.
New font menu
Get font previews and select your favorites with filtering and search options.
Motion Graphics templates in Adobe Stock
Sell your Motion Graphics templates on Adobe Stock, or share them with Premiere Pro users, who can use most templates without having After Effects installed.
