Adobe® After Effects® CC simplifies and accelerates the motion graphics workflow with an amazing 3D ray-traced rendering engine based on NVIDIA® OptiX™ technology. You can now simply and quickly design realistic geometric text and shapes in 3D space, eliminating the traditional time-consuming back and forth with external 3D tools. This new ray-tracing feature becomes truly interactive with NVIDIA GPUs¹, delivering final frames nearly 40x faster than with high-end CPUs alone.²

3D Ray Tracing

GPU-accelerated ray tracing enables 3D beveled and extruded text and shapes to be created directly inside After Effects CC at maximum speeds without the need for an external animation tool. Design more physically accurate scenes to create beautiful results such as reflections, transparency, soft shadows, and depth-of-field blur with NVIDIA GPUs and interact smoothly with the new Live 3D pipeline between After Effects CC and Cinema 4D.

Global Performance Cache

The Global Performance Cache feature makes After Effects CC faster and more responsive than ever before by taking full advantage of the power of your computer's hardware. NVIDIA GPUs allow you to accelerate previews when drawing images to the screen for a highly interactive experience.

Simplifying the Motion Graphics Workflow.

¹ NVIDIA OptiX technology has not yet been implemented by Adobe in After Effects CC for GPUs that are based on the latest NVIDIA Maxwell architecture. GPUs affected are Quadro K2200, GeForce GTX 750/750Ti and all 900 seies for desktop, GeForce GTX 850M/860M & all 900M for laptop. Please contact Adobe in the After Effects forum for more info.
