Macworld Review: Adobe After Effects CS6
I’ve written a review for Macworld on Adobe After Effects CS6 – this turned out to be my very first 5-mice rated product review I’ve written in the many years I’ve reviewed for Macworld!
After Effects CS6 showcases rebuilt, enhanced compositing and motion graphics tools
By Jeff Foster, Macworld.com – May 28, 2012
The release of After Effects CS6 is proof that Adobe actually listens to customer requests and stays current with the needs of today’s filmmakers, editors, and motion graphics artists. Beyond this release’s impressive list of new features, there are much-needed and long-awaited performance improvements.
Adobe has implemented several structural developments like the new ray-traced 3D rendering engine and Global Performance Cache that it rebuilt from the ground up, providing not only faster performance, but increased professional capabilities. New tools such as the 3D Camera Tracker, Rolling Shutter Repair, and variable mask edge feathering are serious professional compositing tools. The enhanced integration between After Effects CS6 and other Adobe tools makes the workflow faster and more fluid than before.
