Features summary | After Effects (December 2021 release)
Universal text engine
Working with multiple languages in After Effects and Premiere Pro is easier and faster now.
Instead of going to Preferences every time you need to use a different script, simply start typing in the chosen language. For graphics that include Middle Eastern and South Asian languages, Left-to-right or right-to-left settings can be applied directly in the Essential Graphics panel. Different scripts can be combined in the same graphics elements and all text layers are interchangeable, making text layers and graphics easier and faster for multi-lingual editing.
I joined Adobe recently and will be partnering with the After Effect team regarding Right to Left languages. Since I'm a native Arabic speaker, I would like to know more about the issues and challenges you, as After Effects users are facing while using the app with Arabic texts. Feel free to write to me in Arabic as well if you prefer. Looking forward to receiving your feedback
