After Effects 24.0 is Here

Greetings, After Effects Users!

The October release of After Effects 24.0 is here, packed with exciting new features and a host of bug fixes! You can grab this exhilarating update right now from the Creative Cloud desktop app. Let's dive into all the amazing possibilities awaiting you!


System Requirements

The system requirements for After Effects 24.0 have changed. Please visit the System Requirements page for details.


What's New

Next-Gen Roto Brush

A new AI model extracts objects from footage faster and more accurately than ever and requires fewer corrections. Refine your results for a beautiful composite, even when tracking objects that overlap or working with hard-to-mask footage, such as hair and transparencies.

OpenColorIO workflow enhancements

Additional OpenColorIO effects under the Effects & Presets panel add flexibility to this industry-standard color interchange workflow.

Text Scripting support

New scripting hooks for text and font manipulation save you time and effort while working with complex text animation workflows.

 

 

 

What's Fixed

 

We heard you! We have been hard at work fixing issues in the latest release of After Effects.


  • When using the Cinema 4D renderer, After Effects no longer shows the ‘zero denominator comparing ratios’ error when trying to preview.
  • Hide After Effects on macOS 13 and later now works consistently.
  • Resolved a performance slowdown that occurs when revealing many property streams from the Properties panel. 
  • CPU and GPU render for the Fill effect no longer mismatch when All Masks is checked, but the layer has no masks.
  • The video layer no longer freezes when the Shadow/Highlight effect is applied, and Effect Opacity is set to 0.
  • Improved performance of the CC Particle World effect when using animated textured particles.
  • Added Shutter Phase control in the CC Force Motion Blur effect and fixed potential invalid RGB values up zero alpha pixels in 32 and 16 bpc.
  • Fixed UI issues on macOS for the CC Split 2 effect.
  • Fixed potential invalid RGB values up zero alpha pixels in 32 and 16 bpc for the CC Power Pin effect.
  • Fixed potential invalid RGB values up zero alpha pixels in 32 and 16 bpc for the CC Light Burst 2.5 effect.
  • Fixed incorrect area sampling radius when using the CC Ball Action effect.

What's in Beta

Design in a whole new dimension using dedicated 3D-related features such as native model import, alignment tools, Image-Based Lighting, and high-fidelity, GPU-accelerated renders.


3D model import

3D model import in After Effects allows you to import 3D model files in OBJ, GLTF, and GLB formats and render them in the same 3D space as native After Effects cameras, lights, and other 3D layers.  

Image-Based Lighting

Use 360-degree High Dynamic Range Image (HDRI) files as a light source to realistically place 3D models into a scene with complementary lighting and shadows. Image-Based Lighting uses an image to produce realistic lighting, reflections, and shadows on 3D layers by surrounding the scene with an image-based environment map. Be it a subtle lighting effect or strong shadows, Image-Based Lighting enables you to ensure that your 3D objects appear as though they naturally belong to the environment your animation needs. 

Advanced 3D Renderer

A new high-quality, performance-oriented composition renderer, Advanced 3D, enables you to render beautiful 3D motion graphics with high-quality antialiasing and transparency. Advanced 3D has an underlying rendering engine that is shared with other Adobe and Substance products and uses Adobe Standard Material properties for physically-based rendering.

2D/3D Interoperability

You can combine 3D assets such as 3D models or extruded text and shapes with 2D ones in your compositions. This increased flexibility in After Effects allows you to mix 2D and 3D elements to create more visually stunning and engaging animations within a single space.

Animated lights and cameras

You can extract lights and cameras from GLB and GLTF models in a composition. When you import a 3D scene with light and camera data, After Effects automatically creates new light and camera layers. If the lights or cameras are animated, keyframes will be created too.

3D Snapping

You can now snap layers in 3D space while dragging the constrained X, Y, and Z position handles of the 3D Gizmo. This includes the XY, XZ, and YZ combo handles of the 3D position gizmo. You can use both constrained and non-constrained snapping while working with 3D model layers to align and position your 3D layers and objects with pixel-perfect accuracy.

3D Model-Driven Effects

Combine 2D and 3D workflows in one composition by using the “as rendered” frame of a 3D model layer as a source. This workflow enables you to apply 2D effects to portions of 3D scenes and create highly stylized renders using effects that reference another layer, such as Displacement Map, Vector Blur, Calculations, and more. 

How to update After Effects to 24.0

Open the Creative Cloud desktop application and click the Updates tab on the top left. Find After Effects in the list and click Update.

Hi I have AE 24 version 55 and I'm trying to import 3d obj files and it keeps giving an error message.  I have the cinema 4D plugin and every tutorial i watch shows it working seamlessly. I really need to get this working and am finding no solution online. My mac is new so not sure what is going on? Help!

Hi domkadika,

 

What's the format of the file you're trying to import? You should be able to import the .OBJ file without any issues. Feel free to share the file here, we'll try to import it at our end for testing.

 

Thanks,

Nishu

When I used the app.project.replaceFont(fromFont, toFont) function in 2024,
it didn't work, so I added a try catch to debug it,
and it popped up a message saying that app.project.replaceFont was not defined.
Does it already working?

Unfortunately, I still cannot work with Cinema 4D lite with this latest AE version without having AE freezing everytime I try.

I outlined the problem in this thread. I was really hoping this would get solved in the next major release. Solving bugs like this one has an absolute priority over new features. Adobe, you charge for this functionality yet I am waiting for 8 months for this to work, this is very annoying.

Now Adobe removed the ability to edit properties from the timeline there is now way to simply edit the Mask properties interactively that I can find!? They can't be added to the new properties panel. This is a major workflow PITA!

I'm pretty sure you guys have a memory leak in this version.

 

For the first time using After Effects (started with v16, I believe), after using v24 a while I get a "low memory" warning. I have to reboot my machine to resolve it - until it happens again.

 

I have 64Gb RAM and 8Gb NVIDIA graphics card. Never had any issues before this version.

Hello, I'm trying to import 3D OBJ files into Adobe Edge version 55, but it keeps displaying an error warning. Every tutorial I've seen for the Cinema 4D plugin I own shows it operating without a hitch. I'm desperate to get this working, but I can't locate a solution online. Since my Mac is new, I'm not sure what's happening. Aid!
