Aetuts+: My First Visit To NAB In Las Vegas
Adam Miller talks about his time at NAB in Las Vegas, and his impressions of the demo of After Effects CS6 he saw while there.
“I also got to see a demo of AE CS6. The new features are quite exciting. They’re going to be including a very user-friendly 3D Tracking featured that spun off the Warp Stabilization back end. The introduction of Ray Tracing will allow for basic 3D extruded text within AE without needing 3rd party plug-ins. The end result of the extrusion was a bit limited, but for what for most people want, I think this will be a well-used addition. There are other functions than just 3D text, but it was by far the most common practical use.”
