(music playing)…Okay, time for the big bottom-line question:…Should you upgrade to After Effect CS6?…Well, there are both pros and cons.…For example, if you're a Photoshop user who really relied upon Photoshop's video…layers or the 3D objects you can create inside Photoshop using Repousse, or, say, the…3D model import, none of those are supported in After Effect CS6.…There are some big changes to both Photoshop and After Effects this cycle.…
They couldn't get compatibility together in time, unfortunately, and even though…the ray tracer is cool in After Effects CS6, it doesn't have the beveling…options that Repousse does. It doesn't have the 3D model import.…So you might look elsewhere for those features.…Another reason not to upgrade is if you rely upon custom Pixel Bender effects.…Pixel Bender's not supported in CS6 either.…That's another thing to watch out for.…Another reason is, if you've not already upgraded to After Effects CS5.5, do know…that even though After Effects CS6 can save back to a 5.5 project, it cannot…
