See what new can do.
After Effects is always getting better, with new features rolling out regularly. And with your Creative Cloud membership, you get them as soon as we release them. Here are some of the latest updates.
Streamline graphics creation with Master Properties
Create multiple variations of a single composition with Master Properties. Choose properties like text, position and colour to adjust in context, without having to open a precomp to make changes.
A more advanced Puppet Engine
Twist and bend layers with greater control and smoother deformations. Add pins to any shape and the Advanced Puppet Engine adds mesh detail where you need it most.
Improvements to data-driven animations
Easily import and view native data files (including JSON, CSV and TSV) right in the timeline. Use the pick whip to link properties directly to data without enabling expressions first.
Immersive VR editing
Tools for 360/VR are now deeply integrated into After Effects. Edit VR with a VR headset mount, stitch videos without distortion, apply seamless effects and motion graphics to 360 videos and more.
Getting started is fast and easy.
