Adobe After Effects CS6 for Mac is a full-featured, professional 2D & 3D digital effects and motion graphics program. This version of the venerable, highly regarded software introduces a 3D camera tracker and employs a global performance cache, which takes advantage of your computer's 64-bit architecture in order to super-charge the program's performance.

In terms of digital animation and compositing, there's little you can't do with After Effects CS6, and with OpenGL acceleration you can do it all with alacrity. Create title sequences & special effects for videos, and composite objects into scenes realistically. Track & rotoscope with mocha, the 2.5D planar-tracking program that now launches directly from within After Effects CS6. With 90 new or enhanced effects, After Effects CS6 continues to eliminate the need for many individual plug-ins, and even other standalone programs. Now integrated into After Effects, for instance, is the CycoreFX HD suite.

Other new features include variable mask feathering, plus the ability to convert Adobe Illustrator vector art into shape layers and to import Avid AAF and Final Cut Pro 7 files by using Pro Import AE. There's also a repair function that fixes the rolling-shutter artifacts that many CMOS imagers tend to introduce into footage. For the CS6 version, Adobe has both expanded After Effects and strengthened its performance with native support for 64-bit operating systems that allows the program to address all the RAM that your OS allows.

New for CS6

Global Performance Cache
Create more in less time, even in high-resolution projects. This revolution "under the hood" makes After Effects fast and responsive by taking full advantage of the 64-bit power in your computer's hardware
3D Camera Tracker

Ray-Traced, Extruded Text & Shapes
Extrude fully ray-traced text and shapes natively and take full advantage of reflections, environment maps, and more
Variable Mask Feathering
Create a separate set of splines to precisely control mask feathering. Get the exact shape you want with the proper degree of softness at any point along the mask edge, resulting in a big boost to creative flexibility
Integration with Adobe Illustrator
