Welcome

Hi, I'm Mark Christiansen and I'd like to welcome to After Effects CS5 New Features. In this course, I'll give you an overview of the new features added to the latest version of After Effects and show you how to put them to work. I'll show you how to use Roto Brush to automatically select and matte objects in a video clip as they move around the frame. We'll take a look at what it means for After Effects to be a 64-bit native application and see how you can configure your machine to take advantage of these huge improvements to memory allocation. So let's get going with After Effects CS5 New Features.
