Create and animate complex terrains. Simulate animated water from a still image. Create billowing fabric. Create and animate characters. Animate and morph your 3D objects. Replicate or clone your 3D objects multiple times on a single layer with The Generator feature. And much more!
FreeForm Pro: The Ultimate Guide
Chris Lavelle (ldistudios.com/) walks us through the features of FreeForm Pro. He explains every feature in detail, step-by-step. An extremely thorough video manual that can be used as an introduction to FreeForm Pro, or as a reference guide on specific features. This is a companion guide to ShapeShifter AE: The Ultimate Guide.
3D MESH WARP
Bend and distort on x, y, z. Add up to 400 control points on a single mesh layer, and control and animate each point in 3D space.
Replicate your 3D object multiple times on a single layer. Control and animate the replications with one set of controls.
3D DISPLACEMENT MAPPING
Use a grayscale image to displace or deform your layer in 3D space. Great for terrain and character animation.
3D SHAPE MORPHS
Create and transform from one 3D shape to another.
Add the fresnel lens phenomenon to your work. Create additional 3D materials, like water and glass.
DISPLACEMENT MAP CHANNELS
Isolate different regions on your 3D model, and give them different reflections and finishes.
DISPLACEMENT MAP NOISE
Easier to create natural-looking organic surfaces and animations using mathematical algorithms instead of additional geometry. Is a great complement to displacement maps.
ADDITIONAL REFLECTION MAPPING CONTROLS
Many extra built in features for much more control over reflections.
Control the amount of geometry in your 3D model. Add more geometry for extreme close-ups in your animation, and diminish the geometry for long-shots of the same model.
Create natural phenomena like fog and mist with no additional rendering time.
3D BLENDING MODES
True 3D blending (transfer) modes built-in at many levels.
Spherical and Cubic.
