your video. In addition to the new user interface that is introduced
in this version you will find a Graph Editor to improve control of
keyframe editing, a new Timewarp function allows you to variably
control the playback speed of your footage and hundreds of new
presets for animation and behaviors that will allow you to quickly
add animation effects to your footage. On the technical side of
things, After Effects now has support for 32-Bit HDR Color, OpenGL
2.0 3D acceleration and several new file formats. You can even
export video from After Effects directly to a Flash Video (FLV)
file, allowing you to easily deliver your content on the web.
