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

Learn about the powerful and improved Roto Brush 2 which is currently in the current 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.
