Excellent new features! I am certain some will come in handy on a daily basis! I wonder what they did to the interface as well!
I was about to start a media encoder thread a few days ago.
Unlike Creattive, I was on the other end of the spectrum. It’s maybe fair to mention that my experience comes from using CC 2014 and results would certainly differ with other versions.
Funny, they removed the h264 format from Ae and now kindly ask users to render it via AME. “Fine” I say. I do that and come to realize that AME renders it almost twice slower than Ae. Alright, I do a google search and find that plenty of folks complain about slow AME CC / 2014. Additionally, I ran into a couple of benchmark tests users did – results were always in favor of directly exporting from Ae. I can say the same, as far as my experience goes. Adobe confirmed there was some sort of an issue with AME. I am positive I can find the thread at their forums if needed. Very frustrating, seems like a job half done.
As far as workflow goes – I always export an image seuqnce fist, then whatever the client requests. Having an image sequence is far more flexible than any video format. Seems to be the safest rout as well.
Just use a few instaces of curves or whatever and live a happy life.
Silly question guys, I just downloaded the latest AE CC 2014 from Adobe. Started as trail and checked the version – it says “184.108.40.206” and the updater says I am up to date. However, I keep reding an update 13.0.2 has been released. Isn’t the trail version the last one there is? I looked in their download update section – no such thing as 13.0.2. Am I missing something?
I dont like them. Please get the old ones back.
Ah the magic!
Personally, at certain point I got bored. It was the routine I guess. Havent given up though.
