Tabaat Al Mushahid – Title Sequence
This title sequence for the Saudi morning newspaper review show, Tabaat Al Mushahid, shows a really practical use of FreeForm. The newspaper sequence was shot with a Canon 5D, with some blank areas left on the newspapers. The graphics were then added and peeled off/distorted in After Effects with FreeForm
True Detective Title Sequence
Chris Morris (studiobreeder.com) used FreeForm/FreeForm Pro to distort and add dimension to the footage in After Effects during compositing.
Character Animation in After Effects.
Mettle`s FreeForm plug-in is a key component of Dave Legion’s character animation. It streamlines the workflow in AE, and lets you control your character more like a puppet. A key feature is the ability to rotate your character`s head 180 degrees in 3D space.
Character Animation in AE
Dan Gies, a Master of character animation, utilizes FreeForm because it allows him to do a more intuitive and creative method of character animation. A key feature is the ability to have 180 degrees of head rotation from a single image. This is an enormous time-saver. Thanks to Dan for giving everyone this fully rigged 3D puppet.
After Effects Guru Mylenium (Lutz Albrecht) created this amazing underwater sequence. The top of the Jellyfish was created with FreeForm, while the tendrils were created with Trapcode Particular. Lutz was kind enough to share his project file.

Create Textured 3D Sequences
Gary Bird created this fun sting for a childrens’ history program in Australia. He combines many animated elements with a textured map. The displacement map feature makes it fast and easy to create the textured map from a single image.
FreeForm Receives Worldwide Recognition
Matt Silverman and the good folk at Bonfire Labs were commissioned by Adobe systems to craft the Adobe stinger for the CS5 launch to showcase some of the great new features. This clip includes sequences that are made with FreeForm, which was bundled with CS5 under the name digieffects FreeForm. Thanks to Adobe for that honour and recognition. FreeForm still offers the same great features, is now known as mettle FreeForm, and has been optimized to work up to 10 x faster. Don’t Wait… Create!
3D Animation, Quickly and Easily
Chris Bobotis, the creator of FreeForm (mettle.com) put together this Animated 3D U.I. Gadget to show some of the plug-in’s capabilities. Chris comes from a designer/art director/creative director background. Inspiration for our plug-ins came from his desire for a more productive, creative and intuitive way to work in After Effects.
