On March 10, 2021, Adobe released a new version of their compositing software, After Effects (version 18.0). Maxon is pleased to announce that the latest version of all Red Giant products are compatible, and it is safe for users to update to the Adobe After Effects 18.0.
Not to be outdone by the development team, the Maxon Training and Education Team has also been hard at work creating tutorials that include leveraging the brand new tools in After Effects 18.0 with both Cinema 4D and Red Giant tools. Check out these great videos:
