Adobe has been keeping all digital artists & Film-Makers alike on their toes for the last few years , with consistent releases of their innovative design and production suites. Over here at The ICU we’ve had a successful run with the combination of FCP workflows incorporating Adobe After Effects. Lets take a look at the new features After Effects CS5 has to offer…
Roto Brush-Isolate foreground elements from backgrounds in a fraction of the time it would otherwise take using this revolutionary new tool.
AVC-Intra and enhanced RED support -Work natively with tapeless footage from the newest high-quality Panasonic cameras thanks to AVC-Intra 50 and AVC-Intra 100 support. Take advantage of improved support for RED R3D formats, and gain additional controls for working with raw footage
Color Finesse enhanced-Enjoy an enhanced color correction workflow with the new features, finer control over hue and saturation, and ability to export settings as color lookup tables (LUTs) in Color Finesse LE 3.
Digieffects FreeForm-Turn flat objects into virtually any 3D shape using this popular 3D mesh warp plug-in.
mocha for After Effects v2 enhanced-Apply motion tracking to hand-drawn masks and import variable-width mask feathers. The powerful mocha shape plug-in is also included.
Auto-Keyframe mode-Animate quickly by setting starting keyframes automatically.
Refine Matte effect new-Apply intelligent edge tracking, dechattering, and motion blurring capabilities to any layer with a problematic alpha channel, such as keyed footage.
