FAQ

What is After Effects CC and who is it for?

After Effects CC is the industry-leading animation and creative compositing software used by a wide variety of motion graphics and visual effects artists. It offers superior control, a wealth of creative options, and integration with other post-production applications — and it’s available only in Creative Cloud.

I use a Mac. How does the lack of 32-bit support affect me?

The lack of 32-bit support does not affect the majority of Mac computers that use Intel® processors. The only Mac users affected by the lack of 32-bit support are those using Intel based Mac computers with Intel Core™ Duo (single-core) processors. Refer to the After Effects CC system requirements to make sure your computer meets the minimum system requirements.

Does After Effects still support 32-bit operating systems?

No. The performance benefits of native 64-bit support make it the best choice for the demanding technical requirements of working with video, particularly HD and higher resolution content. Offering only 64-bit support enables Adobe to optimize performance even further.

Will my existing plug-ins work with After Effects CC?

Any 64-bit plug-ins designed for After Effects will work in After Effects CC. Any 32-bit plug-ins for After Effects will need new versions designed for 64-bit computing. For more information, contact the plug-in manufacturers..
