Avid AAF and FCP 7 XML file import with Pro Import AE
Import and work with files created in Apple Final Cut Pro 7 or earlier versions, as well as Avid Media Composer and Symphony, letting you integrate After Effects with professional production workflows.
Multiprocessor and multicore support
Render and preview faster by taking advantage of your computer's power. After Effects uses multiple processor cores to calculate complex effects and to render multiple frames simultaneously.
Real-time, high-fidelity OpenGL support
Work with speed and precision using OpenGL, which enhances the display of blending modes, motion blur, anti-aliasing, track mattes, high-quality shadows, and transparency and accelerates the rendering of common effects.
Coordinated RAM allocation
Coordinate RAM usage across multiple Adobe Creative Suite® Production Premium components with unified memory management. Make the most of your system resources without learning complex memory management settings.
Layer and composition proxies
Prerender time-consuming compositions and assign them as proxies without changing the structure of your project. Temporarily replace large source comps with lower resolution versions to speed up work.
Fluidly key, mask, rotoscope, and paint composites
Work efficiently with an unlimited number of masks, imported or created in After Effects. Animate masks and their parameters over time. Take advantage of Academy Award–winning Keylight from The Foundry, Roto Brush, and other compositing tools.
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.
Isolate foreground elements from backgrounds in a fraction of the time it would otherwise take using this revolutionary tool.
Control which parts of a 2D or 3D layer are visible by adding and animating a virtually unlimited number of masks on any layer. Individually control their feather and transparency.
Use Academy Award–winning Keylight from The Foundry to create mattes of green screen and blue screen footage, even for difficult situations such as reflections, semitransparency, and hair.
Animate the shape of masks over time as well as their parameters, such as feather and opacity.
Copy paths in Adobe Photoshop® and Illustrator® software and paste them as masks in After Effects. Use the Shape effect to import masks tracked in mocha for After Effects CS6* from Imagineer Systems Ltd.
Create RotoBezier masks from scratch or convert them from Bezier masks.
Use any layer's pixel data (alpha channel or luminance) to determine the visibility of an adjacent layer.
Combine masks using Add, Subtract, Intersect, and Difference modes.
Specialized keying effects
Employ Difference, Color Range, Color Key, Linear Color Key, Extract, and Luma Key effects as needed for a specific job.

Motion Sketch and Smoother
Quickly draw an animation path for any layer and set its velocity with Motion Sketch; then fine-tune the shape and speed of the path with the Smoother. Integrates with the Puppet tool to create natural animation.
Specify an auto-orientation option for each layer. Layers and cameras can easily auto-orient along 2D or 3D motion paths. 3D layers can also auto-orient toward the camera.
Use the Puppet tool to animate text or images naturally with organic, pin-based deformations.
Independent x, y, and z keyframe values
Separate bundled x, y, and z value keyframes into their own curves that can be edited individually. Also recombine these streams back into standard bundled keyframes.
Link the behavior of a property to that of another to easily create dynamic relationships, using the convenient pick whip or mathematical expressions. Simulate physical behavior realistically with minimal need for keyframes.
Multiple keyframe interpolation types
Animate motion or properties quickly and easily for smooth and elegant eases; linear paths; or sudden, stepped motion. Edit velocity and ease interactively in the Graph Editor or numerically.
Create natural-looking zoom effects by scaling exponentially instead of linearly.
Adaptive motion blur
Adjust motion blur on a layer-by-layer basis to produce more realistic animations. You control how the motion blur is calculated to customize its look and enhance its smoothness.
