AE Trapcode Presets #9

Harry Makes New Presets! By Ko Maruyama

Harry has joined the fray, offering some REALLY COOL PROJECTS that you can use for your After Effects animations.  These are actually project files, and not just Animation Presets.  Some of the elements that we will feature here are simple, but others may rely on complex animations.  Download the ones you want to see what's been done.

Plugins help you easily create visuals that would otherwise take up too much production time.  While some plugins, like Fast Blur are fairly easy to control, sometimes the plugins themselves can eat up production time.... especially highly detailed plugins like TRAPCODE PARTICULAR.

Harry Frank is an animator who hails from the midwest and is a veteran of the craft.  Like many of us, he creates both 2D an 3D animations.  Because he works in the heartland of the car industry, Maya is the 3D tool of choice.  You can check out some more of his work, or hire him to make your project look cool by clicking here:

Emerson and I - and NOW HARRY -  are playing around with several different plugins, but in the next few weeks, we'll focus on the TRAPCODE bundle.   Every week (or every other week), we'll present some more presets; some obvious, others complex.

We'll present things from the standard plugins as well as third party sets.  If you have any questions about them, you can check out the PLUGIN CENTRAL forum, or if your question is After Effects specific, you can check out the AFTER EFFECTS forum here on DMN Forums.  You'll want to check in to those forums for special discount notices and other announcements that you won't find on the regular stories.

There are many tutorials and projects that will come up at this site which may not be directly related to this thread.  In order to make sure that you don't miss a new feature, take a minute to get your FREE subscription to RENDERS newsletter.  This way, you'll be sure to get an overview in your mailbox.

If you have a project or animation preset that you want to share with the world, let me know at komaruyama on my Gmail account.

to download the file

This week you can download a set of various presets for TRAPCODE's effects .  Although the effects are fairly simple, the setups may inspire you to create something else, or just to have for future use.
