Adobe unveils brand new version of After Effects

It's been an exciting day of new Adobe releases, and After Effects users haven't been forgotten. The new version of the motion graphics software will be released exclusively through the Creative Cloud - along with new versions of Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Dreamweaver, and will be called not, as we'd expected, CS7 but 'After Effects CC'.

That means you won't be able to buy the new After Effects in the shops, or download it for a one-off fee. You'll still be able to buy After Effects CS6, and Adobe will continue to provide bug-fixes and the like. But other than that, it's goodbye to boxed products and hello to monthly subscriptions: $19.99/£17.58 for After Effects alone or $50/$46.88 for the whole suite of tools.
