Real-time 3D Draft Preview in After Effects gives users immediate feedback on 3D designs in the Comp panel so they can make creative decisions faster and iterate on designs more easily.

3D Ground Plane, on the other hand, helps designers orient their designs in space, providing a horizon line, vanishing point, and grid with snapping for positioning and aligning objects with precision.

More Efficient Composition Toolbar in the latest version of After Effects is more logically organized and presents tools contextually, based on the current task.

Besides that, Multi-Frame Rendering provides up to 300% faster rendering when exporting compositions with multicore CPUs. Plus, a streamlined Render Queue now highlights the most important information to simplify the export process.

Last but not least, Media Replacement in Motion Graphics templates, enables creators to step up their personal brand, add stand out visual style to their videos and use templates to provide dynamic visual treatments, all without having to know After Effects.

Character Animator

Content creators using Character Animator will find a new robust project file format for newly created or Saved-As projects that’s faster and more compact as well as being more resilient to power loss and file-syncing conflicts.
