New: What’s New in After Effects 2022 – Oct 2021 Release
The After Effects 2022 release, aka the October 2021 update. includes Multi-Frame Rendering (MFR), which accelerates After Effects up to 4x with the CPU. In addition, they’ve added a Composition Profiler, which shows the CPU usage of each layer in the timeline. Finally, After Effects notifies you about renders!
We’re putting together a list of plugins that have been updated to support MFR.
What’s New in After Effects 2022 – October 2021 release
The following is from the Adobe Help Documents, which you can find here.
Faster Previews and Renders with Multi-Frame Rendering
Accelerate your creative process by taking advantage of the full power of your system’s CPU cores when previewing and rendering. After Effects automatically adjusts resource usage to render your compositions as fast as possible on your machine.
Reimagined Render Queue with Remote Notifications
The Render Queue, also taking advantage of Multi-Frame Rendering, highlights the most important information such as your rendering progress. Get notifications even on your smartwatch, when renders are complete via the Creative Cloud desktop or mobile app.
Learn which layers and effects in your composition are taking the most time to render in relation to other layers and effects. The layer profiler highlights which areas of the composition impact your processing time and enable you to optimize your project for faster rendering as you iterate.
Work faster even when you’re not working. After Effects renders your composition when it has been idle for a set amount of time, so your composition is ready to preview when you are.
Export Faster with Adobe Media Encoder
With Multi-Frame Rendering, export your compositions up to 4x faster using the full power of your system and without upgrading your hardware. Render while you work on your compositions while Adobe Media Encoder renders faster in the background.
Improved playback for 10-bit HEVC
New hardware-accelerated decoding for 10-bit HEVC 422 provides improved playback and editing on Intel Windows systems.
Enable LUT Interpolation method selection
Enables you to select the LUT Interpolation method from the dropdown under Project Settings. Currently, After Effects only supports Trilinear or Tetrahedral interpolation.
Unified version numbers
With this major release, all the Adobe video and audio applications will align on version number 22.0, making it easier to ensure compatibility across the applications.
Currently in Beta
Scene Edit Detection
Powered by Adobe Sensei, automatically detect scene changes in an edited clip and place scenes as layers for a faster project setup. Scene Edit Detection makes it much quicker and easier to reuse part of an edited video clip.
