B&H now has Adobe’s newest version of After Effects, CS6, available for preorder.
Here is what’s NEW for CS6:
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 computer’s hardware.
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.
Ray-Traced, Extruded Text & Shapes
Extrude fully ray-traced text and shapes natively and take full advantage of reflections, environment maps, and more.
Variable Mask Feathering
Create a separate set of splines to precisely control mask feathering. Get the exact shape you want with the proper degree of softness at any point along the mask edge, resulting in a big boost to creative flexibility
Integration with Adobe Illustrator
Instantly convert Illustrator vector art (AI and EPS format) into shape layers. Easily animate vector art in 2D or extrude to 3D.
Rolling Shutter Repair
Remove rolling shutter artifacts such as skew and wobble without forcing stabilization, using an improved version of technology originally introduced with Warp Stabilizer.
New & Updated Effects
Enhance your creativity with 90 new and updated built-in effects, including the complete 16- and 32-bit CycoreFX HD suite (included – English only).
Avid AAF & 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.
Mocha for After Effects CS6
Launch mocha for After Effects CS6 (included – English only) directly within After Effects CS6.
