Version 1.5 New Features:
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. Is a great complement to displacement maps.
ADDITIONAL REFLECTION MAPPING CONTROLS: More built in features for much more control over reflections.
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.
NEW 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.
- Generate and animate true 3D text in the AE comp window
- Easy 3D Deformations – Bend, Bulge & Twist controls
- Generate and animate organic 3D effects
- 3D Displacement Mapping: Use a grayscale image to deform your layer in 3D space
- The Generator: A Built-in particle system
- Works on AE Shape Layers + Layer Masks
- Render depth maps for use with lens blurs + products like Trapcode Particular etc.
- Reflection mapping – Spherical and Cubic
- Shadow casting
- High-speed rendering
Version 1.5 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 (or later) 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.
