Profound Effects Ships Useful Things 1.2

After Effects plugin lets users generate custom effects By Dave Nagel
Profound Effects has released version 1.2 of Useful Things, a plugin for Adobe After Effects. Useful Things allows users to generate, save and share custom effects for After Effects. It's available now for Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows.

Useful Things ships with more than 110 functional scripts for creating special effects. According to Profound, each script is like its own plugin, able to present its own user interface and perform a custom effect. For the effects that ship with the plugin, source code is provided. In addition, when a customer registers Useful Things, he or she gains access to the Profound eXchange, which contains a searchable database of new effects contributed by other users or by the company. Each entry in the database contains a summary and preview of the effect with a link for downloading.

The new version adds 40 new or improved effects and also includes workflow enhancements. Current users can upgrade at no charge. The full version runs $395. For more information, visit
