Digital Anarchy Releases Anarchy Toolbox

After Effects collection includes 9 effects tools By Dave Nagel
Digital Anarchy has released Anarchy Toolbox, a set of nine tools for Adobe After Effects. The tools in the collection range from painterly effects and blurs to distortions and transformation utilities. The package is available now for Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows.

Anarchy Toolbox includes nine individual filters for After Effects, many of which build upon functions available in After Effects, providing additional controls. Others are completely new. Specific plugins include:

  • Anarchist Edge, which produces glowing and painterly edge effects;
  • Designer Blur, which builds blurs based on a user-definable shape;
  • Path Distort, which uses an animatable Bezier path to warp images;
  • Gradient Path, which uses Bezier paths to define gradients;
  • Noise Complex, a noise filter with a variable frame rate, offering the ability to use grayscale images to control the amount of noise;
  • Smooth Tiler, which can turn non-tiling images into tiling images and also produce kaleidoscopic effects;
  • ReSizer, which uses new algorithms for resizing images;
  • Advanced Displacement Map, which allows you to combine up to three different grayscale maps to create distortions, along with control over blur, scale and contrast;
  • Color Sampler, which samples footage and returns the color of the pixels at the sample location for generating Expressions based on an image's color.

Anarchy Toolbox is available now for an introductory price of $129. It supports After Effects 4.1 and later on Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows. For more information, visit
