Compliance with Licenses. If you are a business, company or organization, you agree that upon request from Adobe or its authorized representative you will within thirty 30 days fully document and certify that use of any and all Adobe software at the time of the request is in conformity with your valid licenses from Adobe. Specific Provisions and Exceptions. This section sets forth specific provisions related to certain components of the Software as well as limited exceptions to the above terms and conditions.
To the extent that any provision in this section is in conflict with any other term or condition in this agreement, this section will supersede such other term or condition. If you obtained the Software in Germany or Austria, and you usually reside in such country, then Section 6 does not apply; instead, Adobe warrants that the Software provides the functionalities set forth in the Documentation the “agreed upon functionalities” for the limited warranty period following receipt of the Software when used on the recommended hardware configuration.
As used in this Section, “limited warranty period” means one 1 year if you are a business user and two 2 years if you are not a business user. Non-substantial variation from the agreed upon functionalities will not and does not establish any warranty rights. To make a warranty claim, during the limited warranty period you must return, at our expense, the Software and proof of purchase to the location where you obtained it.
If the functionalities of the Software vary substantially from the agreed upon functionalities, Adobe is entitled — by way of re-performance and at its own discretion — to repair or replace the Software.
If this fails, you are entitled to a reduction of the purchase price reduction or to cancel the purchase agreement rescission. For further warranty information, please contact the Adobe Customer Support Department. Instead, subject to the provisions in Section If the Software is pre-commercial release or beta software “Pre-release Software” , then this Section applies. The Pre-release Software is a pre-release version, does not represent final product from Adobe, and may contain bugs, errors and other problems that could cause system or other failures and data loss.
Adobe may never commercially release the Pre-release Software. If you received the Pre-release Software pursuant to a separate written agreement, such as the Adobe Systems Incorporated Serial Agreement for Unreleased Products, your use of the Software is also governed by such agreement.
You will return or destroy all copies of Pre-release Software upon request by Adobe or upon Adobe’s commercial release of such Software. The Tryout Software may contain limited functionality and is to be used for demonstration and evaluation purposes only and not for your commercial purposes. Shape layers can contain a compound shape—a group with any number of shapes—so that animations or settings for a particular layer affect the entire group of shapes on that layer.
And now, you can convert text to a Shape Layer, which means you can apply vector warping to its shape in addition to rasterized effects. And speaking of text, you can finally move individual text characters in 3-D also called Z-space through the animators. When Adobe released its powerful text animators in After Effects 7, users were ecstatic at the possibility of creating mind-blowing titles and animated text sequences—until they discovered that they could manipulate only the x and y coordinates within a text layer.
Puppet show The new Puppet tool is intuitive and powerful, giving you the ability to take a rasterized image layer and animate it by stretching and bending character parts and limbs. By using the Pin tool to mark out joints and overlays, and the Starch tool to stiffen areas of the mesh, you can animate and warp a character with either exaggerated or natural movements.
Previously, the only way to do this was to create several layers and try to distort them individually. The organic motion that the Puppet tool creates with a graphic layer is truly phenomenal. If you select various layer and effects properties and then click on the Brainstorm button, the program gives you a number of possible size, shape, color, or motion options that you can refine and change as you select new criteria.
It provides more than just a random selection of colorization or layout options—you get a previsualization grid of animated variations utilizing all the elements of the selected layers. From that grid, you choose the option that you want to apply. Photoshop Extended integration Never before have Adobe After Effects and Photoshop been as closely integrated as they are in this new video production suite.
One element of the feature remains slightly disappointing, however. Upon importing a PSD file, you can either merge the effects onto the layer or ignore them.
