Adobe After Effects 5.5 delivers a comprehensive set of tools to efficiently produce motion graphics and visual effects for film, video, multimedia, and the Web. This Production Bundle contains all the tools in the Standard version plus 16-bit color support, vector paint capabilities, network rendering, and additional keying, motion control, visual effects, 3-D channel, and audio tools. It also includes the Zaxwerks 3D Invigorator Classic, a plug-in designed to help easily produce broadcast and film-quality 3-D graphics. After Effects offers a high level of integration with Adobe Premiere, Adobe Photoshop, and Adobe Illustrator to produce professional results. And now get native support for Mac OS X.

After Effects 5.5 features increased control over lighting properties, allowing users to cast colored shadows or simulate the effects of stained glass. Create spotlights that cast light in the shape of stars or logos. After Effects 5.5 also includes eight new effects, giving you more than 90 effects to use alone or in combination to produce looks that are tailored for any project. And now you can apply effects more efficiently and organize them however you like with the new effects palette. Just drag and drop effects from the palette and arrange them using customized folders or list them alphabetically.

After Effects 5.5 offers more import and output options. Create RealMedia streaming or Web download files that support RealVideo, RealAudio, and RealVideo with audio. Get support for work in 16-bit-per-channel formats such as Maya IFF, QuickTime, RPF, and SGI files. Import Macromedia Flash files and MPEG-1 files to use in your compositions. Cross-media delivery of high-quality digital content with After Effects has never been easier or more flexible.
