Roto Brush 2 is a faster and more accurate rotoscoping tool that separates a foreground object from its background. Powered by Sensei, Roto Brush 2 selects and tracks the object, frame by frame, isolating the subject automatically. You can identify the subject by drawing a rough stroke through it. After Effects automatically highlights the selection around the edges, and tracks the object. If you don’t like the selection, you can simply add or remove areas of the selection using intuitive keyboard commands.
Though the UI remains the same overall, Roto Brush 2 is different because it uses machine learning solution to propagate selections over time making the tedious process of rotoscoping a quick and easy task.
Developing 3D content is a common workflow for motion designers today. This release introduces a new mode to help you design and composite 3D content natively in After Effects. You don’t have to constantly jump back and forth between 3D applications just to animate a single scene. This mode helps you make working in 3D faster and more approachable. This release introduces the 3D Transform Gizmos, and Improved camera tools in the 3D Design Space.
The 3D Transform Gizmos allow you to rotate, scale and position a camera. Similar to Adobe Dimension, the 3D Transform Gizmo gives you the power to see how far you have repositioned the camera, the amount of rotation you have applied, and how small or large you have scaled. The camera can also be controlled using the new keyboard shortcuts, which make it easier to switch between them. Instead of having to select a specific gizmo, you can hold down the option key on your keyboard and use different mouse buttons (left, middle and right) to orbit, dolly and position the camera. When done, simply deselect the option button, and you are right back to the original tool you were using.
