announcing the After Effects CC (12.1) update, one of several October 2013 updates for Adobe professional video applications
Today, we released the After Effects CC (12.1) update, which is now available to all Creative Cloud members.
Among many other changes and fixes, this updates enables After Effects CC to run on Mac OS X v10.9 (Mavericks). This full update makes it unnecessary to install the previous After Effects CC (12.0.1) patch. Unlike the After Effects CC (12.0.1) patch, the After Effects CC (12.1) update can be used to update the trial version of After Effects CC (12.0).
If the update hasn’t yet appeared in the Creative Cloud desktop application for you, you can go ahead and check for new updates from within After Effects or any other Adobe application by choosing Help > Updates. You can also force the Creative Cloud desktop application to refresh its list of available updates by quitting and restarting the application. One way to check for updates is by closing all Adobe applications other than Adobe Bridge, and choosing Help > Updates in Adobe Bridge; this ensures that all processes related to Adobe video applications have been quit and can be updated safely.
Ideally, you should install the updates automatically through the Creative Cloud desktop application or by choosing Help > Updates, but you can also directly download the update packages from the download page for Windows or Mac OS by choosing the “Adobe After Effects CC (12.1)” update for your operating system. (IMPORTANT: The After Effects CC updates are not at the top of the page; scroll down to find them.)
If you have difficulty with this update, please bring questions and issues to the After Effects forum. Don’t ask questions in the comments on this blog post, which fewer people will see.
We have also been working with several providers of plug-ins, codecs, and hardware devices to assist them in updating their software to fix some errors and crashes. Please take this opportunity to download and install updated codecs, plug-ins, and drivers from these providers, as relevant to your work.
