Founded in Montreal as a production studio by Chris Bobotis and Nancy Eperjesy in 1992, we are a large team of artists and programmers who have consistently embraced art and tech, and pushed forward the notion of empowering artists with digital tools, developing software by artists for artists,
Mettle’s first commercially available 3D plugin for After Effects, FreeForm, used our proprietary 3DNAE Technology. Recognized for technical excellence and artistic capabilities, FreeForm was licensed by Adobe in 2010. More exceptional 3D plugins followed: ShapeShifter AE and FreeForm Pro. We applied our 3DNAE tech to develop our 360/VR plugins, introducing the first one, SkyBox, in April 2015. That success was quickly followed by more 360/VR plugins for Premiere Pro and After Effects.
Mettle supports the artistic community with a commitment to developing digital tools, promoting customer work and offering customers the opportunity to present their work at events like NAB Las Vegas, IBC, and Adobe Max. We extend heartfelt thanks to our customers for the enormous body of exceptional work that is #MadeWithMettle.
