More accurate face tracking

The Face Tracker makes it easy to apply effects to select areas of faces. Use simple tracking to color correct or blur a face; track specific points to change eye color or mouth movements; or track measurements, such as how wide an eye is open. You can even export data to Character Animator.

Easy 2D character animation

Give life to characters you create in Illustrator or Photoshop by acting out their movements in front of a webcam. Adobe Character Animator (Preview) tracks your facial movements, lets you record dialogue or a voice performance, and enables you to trigger actions with your keyboard.

Customizable previews

Preview compositions, layers, and footage based on your experience and preferences. Choose intuitive default behaviors, create customized previews for different triggers, or revert to legacy preview behaviors with a few clicks.

Adjustable UI preferences

Navigate panels faster thanks to streamlined panel groups. Adjust the brightness of interactive controls to get the contrast just right.

Touch-optimized controls

In the first steps toward a more touch-friendly compositing environment, After Effects makes it easier to navigate between panels in a group by letting you choose and activate panels with touch-optimized controls.

And so much more

Also includes: Enhancements that save time when working with expressions, the ability to import JPEG 2000 files, and more.

Keying effects

Preserve fine detail when keying compressed or poorly shot bluescreen or greenscreen footage. Use the Advanced Spill Suppressor to control the amount of green spill left in greenscreen footage.

Live Text templates for Adobe Premiere Pro

Package your After Effects compositions as Live Text templates so Premiere Pro editors can change the text without changing the text color, motion, or lower third background.

Flexible masking options and Premiere Pro interchange

Use masks to apply effects to specific areas of your compositions — no need for additional adjustment or track matte layers — and blend each effect individually into the original layer. Import masks from Premiere Pro via Dynamic Link for further refinement.

Media Browser enhancements

Navigate your media locally or across a network via Adobe Anywhere, and access complex media types like P2 and XDCAM as media, not as nested folders.

Adobe Typekit integration

After Effects CC (12.2)

Faster, customizable output

Reduce file management clutter and organize your images with new customization of output file name and path templates.

Improved snapping

Layer and mask snapping behavior makes aligning both 2D and 3D objects simple, without needing to calculate and type in values. Now snap items to shape paths, bounding boxes, cameras and lights, and within shape layers.

Script enhancements

New script enhancements make it possible to automate output to various formats by using scripts to change render and output module.

Migrate settings

Migrate your settings such as workspace, preferences, and keyboard shortcuts from previous versions of After Effects CC to your current version.

And so much more

After Effects CC (12.1)

Mask Tracker

Quickly create masks and add effects that travel throughout a scene, avoiding hours of manual adjustment. Draw a mask around an object and it follows the object across frames, automatically adjusting position, rotation, scale, skew, and perspective.
See how it works ›

Flexible scaling options

Make every pixel look its best, with your choice of bilinear and bicubic resampling. Use the detail-preserving Upscale effect to maintain quality and sharpness when transforming SD footage into HD, or turning HD into digital cinema 4K.

Property links

Copy and paste an effect, mask, or other properties from one layer to another so that the pasted instance has a live link to the original. Changes that you make to the original properties are reflected in the linked instances.

Faster Warp Stabilizer and 3D Camera Tracker

Analyze your footage up to 80% faster with new speed enhancements added to both the Warp Stabilizer VFX and the 3D Camera Tracker.

HiDPI content viewers for Retina displays on Mac computers

After Effects will now take advantage of a Retina display on a Mac computer to show each pixel of content in a viewer as a single pixel on the display.

Improved snapping

Layer and mask snapping behavior makes aligning both 2D and 3D objects simple, without needing to calculate and type in values. Now snap items to individual layers in a precomposition and to lines defined by a layer’s boundaries, even outside of the layer itself, making alignment easier.

GPU optimizations

Work faster with GPU optimizations. Enhancements in the ray-traced 3D renderer allow you to quickly work with extruded text and shapes. Inclusion of the NVIDIA OptiX 3.0 library improves performance and stability for the renderer.

Media Browser

Access and manage assets with this convenient, dockable panel. Quickly browse, open, and composite virtually any video format. Link to traditional movie, image, and audio files, as well as industry-standard storage media like P2 cards, RED, XDCAM, and ARRIRAW.

And so much more

Also includes: New properties in the Expression Language menu, rectified audio waveforms, enhancements to layers and mask path drawing, and more.
