Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Wrap-up, part of After Effects CS5.5: New Creative Techniques.
And that's a survey of some of the major new features in Adobe After…Effects Creative Suite 5.5.…Whether or not it's enough for you to upgrade, well frankly it's up to you.…However I will say in their favor Adobe has made it easier to upgrade with this release.…One you can finally save backwards a version, from 5.5 to CS5.…That makes it a lot easier when you have mixed environments or maybe your…clients or co-workers haven't upgraded as quickly as you have.…Secondly there's no penalty with release.…Remember CS5 was a biggie, 64-bit. People had to upgrade all their plug-ins,…people had to upgrade their operating systems. Not in the case with 5.5.…
A lot easier of an upgrade.…Now there is a lot of features that did not get upgraded in this version.…Text has been left alone, shape layers has been left alone, masking has been left alone.…A lot of stuff has been left alone.…On the other hand, 3D space has seen the first major upgrade in ages and it's lovely.…I love the falloff lighting.…I love the better depth of field for 3D cameras.…
