Last October, the Netflix Post Technology Alliance was announced, bringing together some of the biggest technology names in film production and post production. This week Adobe announced that After Effects was selected for the Netflix Post Technology Program’s newly introduced VFX category of tech resources for the Netflix ecosystem. The Netflix Post Technology Alliance program helps manufacturers who build and market products used in the post-production and delivery of Netflix original productions to ensure that tools comply with Netflix specifications and industry standards.
Despite questions (what is a movie?) surrounding streaming movies and Academy Awards, Netflix is proceeding full bore in production, post production, and content management. Hollywood studios can’t quit Netflix — even if they want to, with the New York Times claiming that Netflix’s first-floor waiting room is ‘The Town Hall of Hollywood.’ Still expanding, Netflix’s production hub outside of Los Angeles will be in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Last fall, After Effects’ founding team was honored with a Scientific and Engineering Award from The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for breaking new ground in the science of filmmaking.
