Design and animate complex 3D logos directly in After Effects. Create visually rich unique organic shapes that can morph and replicate with The Generator feature. Create and animate true 3D text in the AE comp window. ShapeShifter AE is powered by 3DNAE, mettle’s proprietary 3D Engine, so it’s blazing fast.
ShapeShifter AE Features:
GENERATE AND ANIMATE TRUE 3D text in the comp window.
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.
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. 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: True 3D blending (transfer) modes built-in at many levels.
INTUITIVE INTERFACE CONTROLS that feel built into After Effects.
USE EXPRESSIONS AND TRACKERS on control points.
GENERATE DEPTH MAPS that work with other applications and plug-ins.
HIGH SPEED RENDERING
REFLECTION MAPPING: Spherical and Cubic
WORK ON After Effects Shape Layers + Layer Masks
ShapeShifter AE plug-in features give you more creative options in After Effects.
Create organic 3D effects in AE.
Lightning Fast Rendering & Easy 3D Extrusions. ShapeShifter AE works right in the AE comp window and uses AE’s native text, built-in presets and effects, AE shape layers and AE masks.
Easy to Create Complex 3D Animations entirely in After Effects. Works well with built-in After Effects text + animation presets.
Work with familiar After Effects text tools. Create one animation and then render countless additional animations based on simple changes to the text or the preset. Easy to change your logo or animated shapes or masks in the comp or pre-comp.
System Requirements: After Effects CS5, CS6, CC and a GPU(Display Card with 1GB of VRAM (or higher). 512mb of VRAM will suffice but our products really sing on cards with 1GB of VRAM or higher.
