I went to the June AEPDX/3DPDX user group meeting in Portland recently. It was a good chance for some folks from Adobe and Maxon to show off the latest features of After Effects CC and Cinema4d Lite via the Cinemaware plugin. I have to say the new features are definitely pushing the product in the right direction. I think the tighter integration with Cinema4d is a good thing and will be looking to see how it evolves. The improvements to the warp stabilizer, including the new reverse stabilize feature is insanely great. I’ll be looking to do some some tests over the summer with that. It will take a while to delve into all the new goodies, but I think they will fill out my tool belt nicely as well as improve my workflow.
