There were also OpenColorIO workflow enhancements. Now you can experience enhanced workflow capabilities with OpenColorIO in After Effects. It allows you to discover the new OCIO Look Transform and OCIO CDL Transform effects, conveniently located under the Color Correction category. These effects utilize the power of OpenColorIO to effectively process color in your projects. The best part is that you can utilize these effects without enabling OpenColorIO color management in your project, providing seamless integration and flexibility in your color correction process.

Some enhancements have been introduced with new scripting hooks for text and font manipulation. These powerful hooks are designed to mirror the functionality available in the After Effects UI, providing seamless integration with scripting capabilities.

In addition to extending the TextDocument object, two new objects have been introduced: Fonts Object, which grants access to comprehensive information about the font environment on your device, as well as enables you to retrieve a list of all available fonts and iterate through them effortlessly. The second one is Font Object, which offers detailed information about a specific font, including the font technology utilized. It helps disambiguate situations where multiple fonts with the same Postscript name are installed on the system, ensuring precise control and selection.

These new scripting hooks enhance your ability to manipulate text and fonts with ease, opening up a world of creative possibilities in your projects.
