Original features

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.

 

ANIMATEABLE SUBDIVISIONS
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.

 
ENVIRONMENT SECTION
Create natural phenomena like fog and mist with no additional rendering time.
 

3D BLENDING MODES

GENERATE AND ANIMATE TRUE 3D TEXT
in the comp window, quickly and easily.

 

EASY 3D DEFORMATIONS
Bend, Bulge & Twist controls.

 

3D DISPLACEMENT MAPPING
Use a grayscale image to deform your layer in 3D space.

 

THE GENERATOR
Replicate your 3D object multiple times on a single layer. Control and animate the replications with one set of controls.

 

FRESNEL
Add the fresnel lens phenomenon to your work. Create additional 3D materials, like water and glass.

 

True 3D blending (transfer) modes built-in at many levels.

 

RENDER DEPTH MAPS
for use with lens blurs + products like Trapcode Particular etc.

 

REFLECTION MAPPING

ShapeShifter AE: The Ultimate Guide
Chris Lavelle (ldistudios.com/) walks us through the features of ShapeShifter AE. He explains every feature in detail, step-by-step. An extremely thorough video manual that can be used as an introduction to ShapeShifter AE, or as a reference guide on specific features. This is a companion guide to FreeForm Pro: The Ultimate Guide.

Mettle Logo Animation

Made with New features for Version 1.75: Spherical Displacement,  Xray render Mode and SkyDome feature we introduce into the Environment section. We used Mettle’s SkyBox with Trapcode Particular to generate the outer space background.

denial.of.service Experimental Work

Sequence created in Ae with ShapeShifter. Thanks to Harry Martis (denial.of.service), whose clients include David Bowie and Banks.

Praschan Requiem Title Sequence

The long typographical morphing sequences are all made with ShapeShifter AE. Great work by Sonia Rechaux for Praschan Requiem, a French Policier, or Crime film.

Model a 3D Aquaman Logo In After Effects

Use your 2D skills and knowledge to quickly create a 3D logo in Ae, with a level of complexity that would be much more time-consuming in a 3D app.
