Content-Aware Fill in After Effects CC 16.1
After Effects CC 16.1 has plenty of great new features, but the biggest news in this release is the new Content-Aware Fill. Until now, this tool was only available in Photoshop. To explain, it removes unwanted objects from a video, using Adobe Sensei technology. In other words, you can remove gear, people, cars, and more with this tool, without rotoscoping or painting.

New features in After Effects CC 16.1
Since we have yet to update and try it for ourselves, here it is, straight from Adobe:
Content-Aware Fill for video
Easily and cleanly remove unwanted objects, including boom mics, signs, and even people, from your clip. Powered by Adobe Sensei, Content-Aware Fill automatically fills the space throughout your clip, saving you hours of painstaking erasing or replacing objects frame by frame.
A new Expressions Editor makes writing expressions easier with line numbers, matching brace highlighting, and code folding. Customize your coding environment with syntax highlighting themes. Identify and fix problems quickly with in-line error messages.
More GPU-accelerated effects include Roughen Edges and Change Color. Both now support 16- and 32-bpc color. Work faster than ever in Team Projects when using multiple assets between team members.
Save guides to share with Premiere Pro editors
Load and save guide setups to reuse in new projects and share with Premiere Pro editors to set parameters for their sequence.
Automatic font syncing
As you move from machine to machine or project to project, any missing fonts will automatically sync from Adobe Fonts, if available.
Expanded format support
RED debayering is now functional for Mercury GPU Acceleration (Metal) on macOS. Now you can import Sony VENICE X-OCN footage.
