Create sophisticated motion graphics and cinematic visual effects for delivery to virtually any screen using industry-standard Adobe® After Effects® CS6 software for motion design and compositing.
3D Camera Tracker
Place and track 3D elements on 2D footage for precise visual effects and motion graphics. The 3D Camera Tracker automatically analyzes 2D footage in the background and places elements on that footage, with complete control over depth of field, shadows, and reflections.
Innovative compositing and animation
Combine moving and still imagery, graphics, and text in 2D or 3D space. Animate practically any aspect of each element and add sound for virtually any result you can imagine.
Responsive 64-bit performance
Work effectively on high-resolution projects — even at 32-bit-per-channel color in HD, 2K, and 4K compositions. See longer previews using all system RAM. Spend less time waiting and more time creating with smart disk caching.
Global Performance Cache
Create more in less time, even in high-resolution projects. This revolution "under the hood" makes After Effects fast and responsive by taking full advantage of the 64-bit power in your computer's hardware.
Unparalleled Adobe integration
Enjoy a streamlined workflow with support for importing Adobe Photoshop® images and layer effects. Move easily between After Effects and Adobe Premiere® Pro software via Adobe Dynamic Link. Import Adobe Illustrator® files, and then animate each layer.
Unlimited creative options
Manipulate moving and still images using effects such as stylize, distort, and shatter. Create grids, radio waves, particles, and more. Combine third-party plug-in effects for Hollywood-caliber results.
Animated text and vector graphics
Create text and vector graphics in After Effects using familiar Adobe tools, and then animate those elements to create visually innovative motion graphics
Comprehensive masking and keying tools
Isolate moving foreground elements from backgrounds fast with the Roto Brush tool. Remove bluescreen and greenscreen backgrounds with Academy Award–winning Keylight from The Foundry*.
Powerful motion controls
Remove unwanted movement with the Warp Stabilizer, or precisely match the motion of source footage with mocha for After Effects CS6. Apply realistic motion blur. Use Timewarp to slow down and speed up footage.
32-bit floating-point pipeline
Exploit extended highlights and shadows with the dynamic range of real-world light. Freely push values above monitor white and recover detail without clipping.
Expressions and scripting
Use expressions to link individual parameters, effects, and layers in a variety of ways — even across compositions. Also add custom capabilities to After Effects and automate repetitive tasks with robust scripting support.
Rich pool of third-party plug-in developers
Add extra capability to After Effects with plug-ins from third-party developers. Discover unique, creative effects; particles; 3D objects; and specialized workflow tools.
Professional results for any media type
Deliver your work virtually anywhere. Compatibility with an extensive list of output formats lets you produce animated content for media ranging from film and broadcast to the web and mobile devices.
