New Features in Adobe After Effects CC 2021 – Roto Brush 2

New features in ADOBE AFTER EFFECTS 17.5 (2021)
New Features in Adobe After Effects CC Fall 2020 (2021)

In this new features video, I am going to show you the most important new features in the new version of after effects 17.5

I am going to show you the new Cursor adornments for mask and shape creation as those come in super handy and solve a problem all artists had in after effects:
drawing a mask and by accident creating a shape layer.

THen I go over the 2 core new features:

the new updated 3D experience with a new transform gizmo, a new design space and new camera tools for improved navigation such as the pan, dolly and orbit around cursor, mouse, camera and point of interest

I am going to show you how to create a default camera and why you don’t even have to create one in first place.

After that I am showing you how to create your first shot with the new improved and super cool new Roto Brush 2

Use Roto Brush 2 to separate a foreground object from its background faster and more accurately. Powered by Sensei, it uses machine learning to propagate selections over time, saving hours of laboriously rotoscoping frame by frame.
3D Design Space

Use the new mode to design and navigate content in 3D space better and faster in After Effects. This release introduces the following tools:

3D Transform Gizmos
Camera tools for improved navigation in 3D
3D Transform Gizmos

Use the new 3D Transform Gizmo to rotate, scale and position a camera. Use the Dimensional guides to view how far a camera has moved or how many degrees it has been rotated. Quickly switch between gizmo modes to focus on a single task.
Improved camera tools for navigating 3D

Quickly move around 3D space right after turning a 2D layer into a 3D layer. Add multiple cameras to a scene based on various viewpoints. Intuitively orbit, pan, and dolly around a scene using customizable keyboard shortcuts.
