ShapeShifter AE 1.8 Mettle

ShapeShifter AE

Overview

3D Extrusions & Then Some!

ShapeShifter AE Goes Beyond Simple Text And Logo Extrusions. Way Beyond!

Work with familiar After Effects text tools and leverage AE text and transition animation presets. This takes versioning to the next level by enabling you to create one animation and then render countless additional animations based on simple changes to the text or the preset. Or swap out your logo or animated shapes or masks in the comp or pre-comp.

Create: 

  • Organic Particle Effects
  • More Organic Particle Effects
  • Easy 3D Text Extrusions
  • Animated Shapes & Logos

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
Spherical and Cubic.
 
WORK ON
