B&H# ADAECS5M Mfr# 65053273
More Info

Adobe's After Effects CS5 for Mac brings professional effects, 2D and 3D compositing, animation, rotoscoping, color correction, and precise keying controls to your production, all with maximum efficiency due to native 64-bit support. Full integration with other Adobe applications means you can import/export files between After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator, and Premiere Pro, adding just the effect or design element you need, at the highest possible quality. For more than a decade After Effects has been the go-to effects program across a wide spectrum of applications--from film and broadcast to mobile media and interactive design.

Note! Adobe After Effects CS5 requires a 64-bit operating system.

Responsive 64-bit Performance
Work more easily with complex high-resolution projects and see longer RAM previews thanks to native 64-bit operating system support. Enhanced disk caching allows you to spend less time waiting and more time creating.
Integration w/Industry-Standard Adobe Applications

Text & Vector Graphics Creation and Animation
Create text and vector graphics in After Effects using familiar Adobe tools, and then animate these elements to create visually innovative motion graphics.
Comprehensive Masking & Keying Tools
Control which portions of a layer are visible by drawing and animating masks. The revolutionary new Roto Brush tool handles rotoscoping in a fraction of the time. Remove bluescreen and greenscreen backgrounds with the award-winning Keylight.
