Why don't you support 32-bit operating systems anymore?
We've heard from our customers that performance is critical, and from a technology perspective, we know that only 64-bit operating systems can deliver the power video professionals require. By focusing on 64-bit operating systems and native 64-bit support for Adobe After Effects, we offer superior performance and large-project stability.
Don't I need a node-based compositing tool for high-end visual effects work?
After Effects already offers the flexibility of node-based tools - often at a fraction of the cost. You can precompose elements into their own composition module and use track mattes, stencil and silhouette alpha modes that apply to multiple layers, a vast number of plug-in effects, and a powerful Expressions language to create dynamic relationships between parameters.
Can After Effects deliver the performance that professionals require?
After Effects offers native 64-bit operating system support for optimal performance and the ability to use all the RAM that your operating system allows. With Global Performance Cache, OpenGL acceleration, RAM and disk caching, and multiprocessor and multicore support - including the ability to render multiple frames in parallel - After Effects can deliver the performance you need.
