The new version adds a few enhancements, including functionality improvements in the timeline and the ability to remember the contents of the Curve Editor when opening and closing the editor window.

Other new features include:

  • Unlimited compositing;
  • More than 75 filters for keying, compositing and text and motion graphics (Pro only);
  • Project management improvements;
  • Layer/Timeline interface changes;
