eFX Pyro Comes to After Effects

Plugin delivers 3D fire and smoke effects By Dave Nagel
ElectricFX has started shipping eFX Pyro, a plugin for Adobe After Effects designed to create authentic 3D fire and smoke effects in Adobe After Effects. The plugin offers a broad variety of keyframeable parameters and uses what the company calls volumetric rendering techniques to produce realistic effects. It works directly within After Effects without the need for additional 3D software, according to the company.

Keyframeable parameters include:

  • Buoyancy
  • Turbulence
  • Vorticity
  • Color
  • Illumination
  • Density
  • External lighting of the effects.

The eFX Pyro plugin supports After Effects 4.1 and 5.0 on Macintosh and some Windows systems. A fully functional demo version is available at the company's Web site, and the full version runs $195. For more information, visit
