Adobe announced today After Effects 6.0, a major upgrade to its motion graphics and visual effects software. The new version integrates a “revolutionary” new text engine for creating typographic animations. It also adds OpenGL support, as well as integrated vector paint, a new motion tracker, keying tools and scripting support. After Effects 6.0 comes in two editions — Professional and Standard. The Pro edition combines 2D and 3D compositing, animation and effects tools from the Standard edition with advanced features including: motion tracking and stabilization controls; additional keying tools; over 30 additional effects; and render automation using scripting and 16-bit per channel color support. After Effects for Mac OS X is expected to ship by the end of August. It will be priced at US$699 for the Standard Edition and $999 for the Pro Edition.
