Adobe® After Effects® CS6
Industry-standard Adobe® After Effects® CS6 software helps you deliver cinematic visual effects and sophisticated motion graphics. Maximise 64-bit performance with Global Performance Cache, which preserves previews whenever possible for a faster, more responsive workflow. Extend your creativity with the 3D camera tracker, text and shape extrusion, photo-realistic light manipulation, superior masking, and innovations such as Roto Brush and Warp Stabiliser.
Innovative compositing and animation tools
Create high-impact communications by combining moving imagery, still images and graphics, text, and sound in 2D or 3D space and then animating virtually any aspect of each element.
Responsive 64-bit performance
Work effectively on high-resolution projects—even at 32-bit-per-channel color—inside 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 Mac's hardware.
Unmatched integration with Adobe applications
Enjoy a streamlined workflow with support for importing Adobe Photoshop® images that include layer and vanishing point exchange data, as well as Adobe Illustrator® graphics that scale crisply to any resolution.
Unlimited creative options
Manipulate moving and still images using hundreds of effects such as the Warp Stabiliser; combine effects to create Hollywood-caliber special effects.
Text and vector graphics creation and animation
Create text and vector graphics and extrude them into 3D, and then animate these 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 The Foundry's Academy Award–winning Keylight (included; UI is in English only).
3D camera tracker
Track 3D elements with complete control over depth of field, shadows, and reflections. Automatically analyze and place 3D track points onto 2D footage in the background while you work.
Avid AAF and FCP 7 XML file import with Pro Import AE
Import and work with files created in Apple Final Cut Pro 7 or earlier versions, as well as Avid Media Composer and Symphony, letting you integrate After Effects with professional production workflows.
