Title: Adobe After Effects CC 2017 v14.x Win64/Mac
The 2017 release of After Effects CC allows you to create dynamic, visually stunning motion graphics and visual effects wherever inspiration strikes. After Effects now allows you to seamlessly collaborate with editors through Team Projects and shared templates, quickly and easily create 3D compositions, instantly playback scenes without caching, and use more GPU-accelerated effects in your composition.
Collaborative post-production workflow with Team Projects
Team Projects is a new, hosted collaboration service built on the Adobe Anywhere technology that enables editors to seamlessly collaborate in the editing workflow in real time. Using Team Projects, editors and motion graphics artists can work simultaneously in shared team projects within After Effects CC, Adobe Premiere Pro CC, and Adobe Prelude CC without any additional hardware. Team project data is securely hosted in the cloud and the Media files referenced by your project are saved in local source files or in shared lightweight proxies. Team Projects also includes deep collaboration features such as version control and smart conflict resolution.
New 3D composition renderer: Cinema 4D
This release of After Effects includes a new 3D renderer that uses the rendering technology of Maxon’s Cinema 4D. You can now quickly create 3D text and logos without any specific hardware, bend planes, and extrude 3D text and shapes directly inside the timeline. The simplified 3D workflow allows you to easily control quality and render settings with a single slider, while using the same camera, lighting and text animation tools.
Building on the new high-performance architecture released in the previous version, the latest release improves performance with faster and smarter processing on the GPU, and some under-the-hood features that are going to make things faster all round. Most video footage can now play back in real-time before effects are applied, without waiting for it to cache.
More GPU-accelerated effects
Performance improvements in this release includes more GPU-acceleration-enabled effects. The following effects are now GPU accelerated: Brightness and Contrast, Find Edges, Hue/Saturation, Mosaic, Glow, Tint, and Invert.
Improved live text templates workflow
Till the previous release, you could share a live text template with a Premiere Pro user only by providing a complete project file with relevant assets. In this release, you can package a composition along with its assets into a single, easy-to-share file with everything your editor needs. Just save your composition as a text template using the Composition > Export as Text Template option and the editor can then work on the template and assets within Premiere Pro.
