New in Adobe After Effects CS3 Professional
Shape Layers

Easily create and animate vector graphics with new Shape Layers. Add and animate strokes, fills, gradients, and vector effects. You can convert text into shapes and animate them just like any other shape type.

Puppet tool
This new, fast, and intuitive animation tool lets you squash and stretch images or text to bring it to life as an animated character. Use Motion Sketch to record the position and speed of your puppet movements, the Starch tool to stiffen areas of the character, and the Overlap tool to control the depth of elements of your puppet.

Adobe Photoshop CS3 Extended integration
Enjoy a streamlined workflow with support for importing layered Photoshop images that include video layers. Sophisticated Photoshop Layer Styles can be easily modified or animated within After Effects. Import Vanishing Point data from Photoshop into After Effects to build 3D compositions automatically.

Tight integration with Adobe Flash CS3 Professional
Work more efficiently to create and edit Flash animations. Preserve vectors from animations created in After Effects for lean and clean delivery, and create Flash Video more easily. Import SWF files as vectors with alpha channels preserved, and batch render Flash videos with embedded cue points.

Per-character 3D text animation
Explore new text animation possibilities by making individual characters in your text--or an entire phrase--move and rotate in 3D space.

Brainstorm
Jump-start animations with Brainstorm, a new user interface that offers variations on selected design and animation parameters. Choose which properties and effects you want to explore, and Brainstorm will propose animated variations.

Complete color management workflow
Enable color management simply by selecting a Project Working Space. Doing so helps ensure the color accuracy of imported files as they are displayed and rendered and allows you to preview how footage will look on other devices.

Adobe Clip Notes
Streamline the review and approval process. Render your work into an Adobe PDF file that enables anyone with Adobe Reader software to make timecode-accurate comments. When you import the comments into After Effects, they appear as markers on the Timeline.

Enhanced performance
Harness your computer's processing power with new multicore and graphics acceleration plus disk caching so you can spend less time waiting and more time creating. Distribute rendering across your entire network to maximize output performance.

3D compositions from Vanishing Point
Export Vanishing Point data from Photoshop Extended, and then import into After Effects to automatically build a 3D composition from the 2D Photoshop image.


Additional Features
Innovative compositing and animation tools
Create high-impact communications by combining moving imagery, still images and graphics, text, and sound in 2D or 3D space and then animating virtually any aspect of each element.

Text and 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 new motion graphics.

Extensive visual effects
Manipulate moving and still images using hundreds of effects such as stylize, distort, shatter, and time remapping. Create grids, radio waves, 3D particles, film grain, fractal noise, and more.

Timesaving tools
Start projects quickly with animation presets and behaviors when creating common animation elements, such as animating text in and out, creating synthetic backgrounds, and more. Use new Brainstorm to quickly experiment and refine designs using parameters you define. Learn fast with Tool Tips and training resources in the box and on the web, and streamline your review process with Clip Notes to create and import comments.

Comprehensive masking and keying tools
Control which portions of a layer are visible by importing, manipulating, and animating masks; flexible auto-tracing options and RotoBezier masks make it easy to get precise results. Key bluescreen and greenscreen mattes with the Academy Award-winning Keylight and a host of supporting tools.

Powerful motion controls
Animate graphics and text using the Puppet tool. Apply motion blur to produce more realistic animations, or use Timewarp to slow down and speed up footage. Precisely match the motion of source footage using Motion Tracker, and get the look of a locked-off shot using Motion Stabilizer.

Enhanced performance
Harness your computer's processing power with new multicore and graphics acceleration plus disk caching so you can spend less time waiting and more time creating. Distribute rendering across your entire network to maximize output performance.

Professional results for every media type
