What’s New In Adobe After Effects CC 2018 ?
- Data-driven animation
Animate motion graphics, such as charts and graphs, using imported data. With custom schemas, third-party partners can write data that can be used by others to generate motion graphics.
- Immersive effects
Add virtual reality effects to your 360/VR videos without creating unwanted distortions at the poles or artifacts along the back seamline. Effects include Gaussian blur, color gradients, chromatic aberration, de-noise, digital glitch, glow, fractal noise, and sharpen.
- Immersive Video Titling and Graphics
Instantly format graphics, text, images, or other video clips to look correct in a 360 video.
- VR Comp Editor
Using a view window rather than working directly with 360/VR footage lets you edit from the same perspective you see when the video is played back in a headset or on a smartphone.
- Extract Cubemap
Convert 360 footage into a 3D cube map format to easily do motion tracking, remove objects, add motion graphics and visual effects, and more.
- Create VR Environment
Automate the creation of necessary compositions and camera relationships to create a 360/VR authoring environment for infographics, animated sequences, abstracts, and more.
- VR Converter
Easily switch between editing formats and export to a variety of formats including: Fisheye, Cube-Map Facebook 3:2, Cube-Map Pano 2VR 3:2, Cube-Map GearVR 6:1, Equirectangular 16:9, Cube-Map 4:3, Sphere Map, and Equirectangular 2:1.
- VR Rotate Sphere
Easily adjust and rotate your 360 footage to level horizon lines, align viewpoints, and more.
- VR Sphere to Plane
See your footage in a perspective-based view similar to what it would look like with a headset even if you’re not wearing one.
- Expression access to mask and shape points
Animate your graphics like never before. Link masks and shape points to other masks, shapes, or layers with expressions without animating frame by frame. Work with one or multiple points and control handles, and apply new data-driven features.
