Adobe has announced a new feature for After Effects editing software. It lets you erase video elements and make automatic modifications to make it appear that objects were never present in the recording. The tool is similar to the Content-Aware Fill feature, released in 2010 in Photoshop. But it focuses on moving images.
According to the company behind the popular editing programs, they designed the new After Effects tool through evolutions in the original feature of Photoshop. This has been receiving great improvements over time. In addition, the company also applied improvements offered by the artificial intelligence platform Adobe Sensei.
The mechanism of Adobe After Effects
The use of the mechanism is also similar to the present in the program of images. The user circulates the object with points and the software does the work of removal. As for video, however, you need to create extra layers to make the feature work. But the work is much easier and automated than editing frame by frame recording. The end result is also impressive. As the video above demonstrates it.
Since After Effects Content-Aware Fill utilizes artificial intelligence capabilities, part of the tool’s processing is done in the cloud. While the rest of the work is on the computer’s hardware, locally. Therefore, it is necessary to have a powerful machine to get the full benefit of the software. We already know it’s not light. In addition to its use for editing, the program also features for animation and computer graphics. These require more power at the time of rendering.
Content-Aware Fill for videos is available in the April update of After Effects via the Adobe Creative Cloud. Check out more information on technology on the company’s website. It brings some detailed tutorials on how to use the novelty.
