Yes, it's true, just as it says here (
"The Vector Paint effect has been removed. Compositions created with a previous version of After Effects that use the Vector Paint effect will still render, but you will not be able to modify the Vector Paint effect properties in these compositions. Instead, use paint tools and shape layers."

Even as far back as After Effects CS3, we've been telling people to use the paint tools and shape layers, not Vector Paint. Here's a quote from the very first sentence of the Help section on Vector Paint in After Effects CS3 (
"For most drawing and painting tasks, use shape tools and paint tools, not the Vector Paint effect."
