Plugin produces cloud effects in After Effects, Final Cut Pro By Dave Nagel
Digital Anarchy has released a new plugin for Adobe After Effects and Apple Final Cut Pro. The new plugin, Aurora Sky, is designed to produce cloud and other vapor effects. The After Effects version is currently shipping, while the version for Final Cut Pro is in beta. Those who purchase the beta version now will receive the full version when it's released.

According to Digital Anarchy, Aurora Sky takes advantage of the 3D capabilities of After Effects and also has a built-in camera for creating fly-though effects. The software also allows for the use of texture maps and cloud shaping maps to create custom skyscapes. And it supports "true" volumetrics. The plugin can produce clouds, smoke, fog and other vaporous effects.


Aurora Sky for After Effects is available for a limited time for $159. The normal list price is $199. Aurora Sky for Final Cut Pro is in beta and available now for $129 for a limited time. Those who purchase the beta will receive the full version when it's released. The software supports Macintosh and Windows. A demo version is also available.
