What's new in After Effects 17.5?

 

Roto Brush 2:

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 around it. After Effects automatically highlights the selection around the edges and tracks the object. To know more about Rotobrush 2, check out these resources:

 

 

3D Design Space:

After Effects 17.5 has 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. For more details, see 3D Design Space.

3D Transform Gizmos:

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. For more information, see 3D Transform Gizmos.

Improved camera tools for navigating 3D:

After Effects 17.5 introduces improved camera tools for navigating 3D space that give you more flexibility and control over the objects in your scene. Unlike earlier versions where you can only orbit around the center of your screen, you can now select a focal point and orbit, pan, and dolly around a scene layer, viewing it from every angle. For more details, see Improved camera tools to navigate in 3D.

 

Beta Features: Adobe After Effects Beta

  • Real-time 3D Draft Preview (public Beta) will empower artists to explore ideas easily and make creative decisions faster, providing real-time feedback as they work.
  • 3D Ground Plane for better spatial relationships (public Beta) will provide a horizon line and vanishing point to aid After Effects artists designing in 3D. Users can toggle a grid on and off for accurate orientation and use snapping to align objects in space or in relation to each other.

What's fixed?

  • Fixed an issue that caused a crash when changing a drop-down list value in the Essential Graphics panel.
  • Fixed an issue where After Effects would frequently crash during playback or while idle in the background.
  • Fixed an issue where After Effects could hang when reading from the disk cache while in low memory situations.
  • Fixed an issue that caused a crash when trying to use hotkeys and shortcuts before creating a composition.
  • Fixed an issue with motion graphic texts that caused incorrect rendering for South Asian Languages.

A lot of the event is not working. The schedule, events, and a bunch of other pages return this:

Sorry about this, Rick.

Have you tried the YouTube stream? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-VVGx47lNb8

 

I'll get the other sections checked.


Thanks,

Rameez

Max finally woke up and ran for about 10 minutes before it froze up. I think it might be bandwidth issues in ISP routers. My city is fairly well served but we get bottlenecks once in a while. I have no idea how many virtual servers it takes for 100K + viewers, but I think some of them are getting clogged up.

I'm trying to watch the session with Woodkid but when I go to the page, there is no video. Tried multiple browsers so it's not me.  Is there an issue with his page?

Hey L337AZN,

 

I'm pretty sure it's because celebrity sessions were only available during the live event.

 

Best,
Rameez

That is a bit strange since it's listed as "On Demand"
