I don't like the idea of the Creative Cloud and have been considering the Adobe CS6 Production Premium, which contains Adobe Premier Pro C26. However, I heard the Creative Cloud features a masking and tracking feature.
Is this feature available on Adobe Premier Pro C26?
You can mask in CS6, but it's a painful experience. You'd be stuck hand animating the mask. PPro CS6 has no tracking ability. If you go the CS6 route you're better off in After Effects which has a dedicated tracker for that type of work.
