PLUGIN PRESETS for After Effects

TRAPCODE Projects using lights By Ko Maruyama
Emerson Velasquez and I have started to create some presets for After Effects.  These are actually project files, and not just Animation Presets.  Some of the elements that we will feature here are simple, but others may rely on complex animations.  Download the ones you want to see what we've done.

Plugins help you easily create visuals that would otherwise take up too much production time.  While some plugins, like Fast Blur are fairly easy to control, sometimes the plugins themselves can eat up production time.... especially highly detailed plugins like TRAPCODE PARTICULAR.

Emerson and I are playing around with several different plugins, but in the next few weeks, we'll focus on the TRAPCODE bundle.   Every week (or every other week), we'll present some more presets; some obvious, others complex.

We'll present things from the standard plugins as well as third party sets.  If you have any questions about them, you can check out the PLUGIN CENTRAL forum, or if your question is After Effects specific, you can check out the AFTER EFFECTS forum here on DMN Forums.  You'll want to check in to those forums for special discount notices and other announcements that you won't find on the regular stories.

There are many tutorials and projects that will come up at this site which may not be directly related to this thread.  In order to make sure that you don't miss a new feature, take a minute to get your FREE subscription to RENDERS newsletter.  This way, you'll be sure to get an overview in your mailbox.

If you have a project or animation preset that you want to share with the world, let me know at komaruyama on my Gmail account.

This week I've made a set of light rigs for TRAPCODE's Particular and LUX.  Although the effects are fairly simple, the light rigs may inspire you to create something else, or just to have for future use.
