Roto Brush 2: The Powerful new tool in the After Effects beta

If you’re a subscriber to Adobe Creative Cloud, you have the option to download and use the beta version of several Adobe products, including After Effects. In the beta, you can check out Rotobrush 2. There is a lot of buzz about it and it looks like they’ve really done some big improvements to the tool. Consequently, it’s powered by Adobe Sensei, which is an AI engine inside many Adobe tools. Particularly, Sensei runs features like Reframe in Adobe Premiere and Photoshop’s Content-Aware Fill. It uses the new propagation engine and the results are much better than the current of Roto Brush.

Currently, you’ll see Premiere Pro, Premiere Rush, After Effects, Character Animator, Audition, and Media Encoder.

The tutorial comes from NoSleepCreative and he does a nice job of walking you through how to recreate the wavy trails and the ribbon of ovals effects in After Effects.
