What's New 1

What's new in After Effects CC 12.1 This section describes the new and updated features in After Effects CC 12.1. See the What's New in After Effects CC (12.0) for information on the changes in the After Effects CC (12.0) release. See this page for After Effects CC system requirements. Mask Tracker Detail-preserving Upscale effect HiDPI content viewers for Retina displays on Mac computers Updated Cineware functionality New OptiX library for ray-traced 3D renderer Bypassing whitelist for GPU acceleration of ray-traced 3D renderer Improved performance for analysis phase for 3D Camera Tracker and Warp Stabilizer Enhancements and changes to properties New properties in the Expression Language Menu Rectified audio waveforms Changes to snapping to align layers in 2D and 3D Enable Video Preview to external devices (Mac OS) Changes and enhancements to layers Project panel folders open automatically on drag Changes to mask path drawing Miscellaneous New and Updated Features To the top Mask Tracker The rigid mask tracker transforms a mask so that it follows the motion of an object or objects in a movie. The tracked object must maintain the same shape throughout the movie, though it can change position, scale, and/or perspective and still be effectively tracked. When a mask is selected, the Tracker panel switches to mask tracking mode and displays the following controls: Track forward or backward either one frame at a time or to the end of the layer Method with which you can choose to modify position, scale, rotation, skew, and perspective for the mask Select Animation Track Mask with a mask selected, or context-click a mask and choose Track Mask from the context menu to display the Tracker panel. See Mask Tracking for detailed information. To the top Detail-preserving Upscale effect The Detail-preserving Upscale effect can scale up images by large amounts while the image details are preserved and the sharp lines and curves stay sharp. For example, you can scale up from SD frame sizes to HD frame sizes, or from HD frame sizes to digital cinema frame sizes. For more information, see the Detail-preserving Upscale effect section. To the top HiDPI content viewers for Retina displays on Mac computers After Effects makes use of the Retina Display on the Mac so that each pixel of content in a viewer is shown as a single pixel on the display. This affects the following contents: The Footage panel The Layer panel 2

The Composition panel including the video content and some UI elements within the content area This does not affect pointers, buttons, or other panels of the After Effects user interface. To the top Updated Cineware functionality There are two new settings in the Cineware effect's Options dialog box. You can specify the instance of Cinema 4D to use with After Effects: For Cinema 4D Render Path: Choose which version of Cinema 4D (R14 or R15) for rendering while working in After Effects. Cinema 4D Executable Path: Choose which version of Cinema 4D to use when opening a .c4d file from After Effects, such as when using the Edit Original command. See Updates to Cinema 4D for detailed information. To the top New OptiX library for ray-traced 3D renderer After Effects CC (12.1) now uses the new OptiX 3.0 library. The earlier version of After Effects CC (12.0) and CS6 (11.0) used the OptiX 2.0 library. The new OptiX library has the following main advantages over the Optix 2.0 library: Fixes a crash on Mac OS X v10.9 (Mavericks) Improved performance, including improvements with multiple GPUs To the top Bypassing whitelist for GPU acceleration of ray-traced 3D renderer The GPU Information dialog box has a Ray-tracing menu from which the user can choose GPU or CPU. In previous versions of After Effects, if the installed hardware is not on the list of tested and supported GPUs, the GPU menu item is disabled (grayed out) and the following text is displayed below the menu: GPU not available - incompatible device or display driver". There is a new option for GPU under Edit Preferences Previews GPU Information: "Enable untested, unsupported GPU for CUDA acceleration of ray-traced 3D renderer". If the checkbox is enabled, After Effects uses the GPU-accelerated ray-traced 3D renderer with any GPU that meets minimum requirements. List of new cards in CUDA whitelist for OptiX The following cards have been added to CUDA whitelist for OptiX (for GPU acceleration of the ray-traced 3D renderer): GTX 675MX (Windows and Mac OS) GTX 680MX (Windows and Mac OS) GTX 590 (Windows) GT 650M (added for Windows; already present in Mac OS list) GTX 760 (Windows) GTX 770 (Windows) GTX 780 (Windows) GTX TITAN (Windows) Quadro K6000 (Windows) Quadro K4000 (Windows) Quadro K2000 (Windows) Quadro K5000M (Windows) Quadro K4000M (Windows) Quadro K3000M (Windows) Quadro K5100M (Windows) 3

Quadro K4100M (Windows) Quadro K3100M (Windows) Quadro K2100M (Windows) To the top Improved performance for analysis phase for 3D Camera Tracker and Warp Stabilizer The background process that analyzes footage for the 3D Camera Tracker and Warp Stabilizer is now much faster. Depending on details of the footage and other factors, the increase in speed for the analysis (tracking) phase has been measured at 60-300%. To the top Enhancements and changes to properties Reveal Properties With KeyFrames The commands to reveal modified properties in the Timeline panel have changed; the Animation menu now has three commands to reveal properties: Reveal Properties with Keyframes (keyboard shortcut U) - Reveal any property that has a keyframe. If a property has both keyframes and expressions, the property is shown but the expression itself is not shown. Reveal Properties with Animation - Reveal any property that has a keyframe or an expression. Reveal All Modified Properties (keyboard shortcut UU) - Reveals keyframes, expressions, or all modified properties (including keyframes and expressions) that are not animated. Linking properties To link properties from one layer to another: 1. Select any property or set of properties. 2. Choose Edit Copy With Property Links. 3. Paste the properties on any layer in any composition. The pasted properties now remain connected to the layer from which the properties were copied. This ensures that any change made to the original property is reflected in all of the instances of the pasted property links. You can copy an entire layer with property links and paste it to create duplicates that follow the changes made to the original. You can also link entire property groups in a layer. For example, copy the transform group and paste it onto another layer to link all the transform properties without selecting them individually. To the top New properties in the Expression Language Menu The following new properties have been added to the Expression Language Menu: irisShape irisRotation irisRoundness irisAspectRatio irisDiffractionFringe highlightGain highlightThreshold highlightSaturation 4

See the Add and Edit expressions section for more information. To the top Rectified audio waveforms In After Effects, audio waveforms are shown as "rectified" audio waveforms. This means that the magnitude of the audio is shown only in one direction from the horizontal axis on a logarithmic scale. This makes it easier to estimate the perception of the loudness of a sound. You can switch back to the old method of showing audio waveforms by deselecting Rectified Audio Waveforms in the panel menu of the Timeline panel. To the top Changes to snapping to align layers in 2D and 3D There are two new options next to the Snapping checkbox in the Tools panel: Snap Along Edges Extending Beyond Layer Boundaries: Enables snapping to lines outside a layer’s boundaries. For example, snap to the line defined by the extension of a layer’s edge in 3D space. This makes aligning layers in 3D space much easier. Snap To Features Inside Collapsed Compositions And Text Layers: Turns on internal wireframes for layers inside compositions with collapsed transformations and for individual characters in per-character 3D text layers. For example, this can be useful for snapping a layer’s anchor point to a different layer in the composition. To the top Enable Video Preview to external devices (Mac OS) To enable video preview to external devices on Mac OS, select the new Enable QuickTime Video Preview option in the Video Preview preferences category. If this preference is checked, After Effects will request a list of external video preview devices from QuickTime. Caution: Enabling this option may cause Adobe QT32 Server to crash, which will cause After Effects to fail. Earlier versions of After Effects automatically requested a list of external video preview devices from QuickTime. To the top Changes and enhancements to layers Center anchor point Set the anchor point to be in the center of the layer content: Layer Transform Center Anchor Point In Layer Content Ctrl Alt Home or Ctrl double-cl
