Trapcode Suite brings the power of 3D particle systems right into After Effects. Use particle emitters to create fire, water, smoke, snow and other organic visual effects, or create technological marvels and user interfaces with immortal particle grids, text and 3D forms. Combine multiple particle systems into one unified 3D space and design emitters that emit full emitters for creating visually stunning results. With GPU acceleration, Trapcode plugins help you get beautiful results fast.
Physics & Fluids
Trapcode Suite includes a physics engine with powerful behaviors, forces and environmental controls. Particular brings particles to life with new flocking/swarming and predator/prey behaviors, and adds more realism with combined bounce and air physics. Particular and Form both include the ability to create organic fluid simulations where particle systems interact with beautiful results.
3D Objects & Surfaces
Create flowing surfaces, mountainous terrains, endless tunnels, and abstract shapes. Use paths and motion to generate beautifully complex geometric shapes, ribbons and extrusions. Whether you are creating motion graphics or visual effects, the possibilities are endless.
Lights and Glimmers
Bring light and life into your motion design. Simulate organic, 3D-camera aware volumetric lighting. Use masks and paths to add light streaks that can bring your logos and text to life and add starry glimmers to accent the highlights in your work.
Sound and Motion
Use audio to generate keyframes that drive animation and effects. Scale, rotate and move to the beat, or use drum hits to create particle effects. Duplicate and offset layers and their motion with ease. Trapcode Suite gives you the power to automate complex animation easily.
Cinema 4D File Import With a subscription to Red Giant Complete, get even more 3D geometry input options thanks to integration with Cineware .c4d files. Bring C4D file geometry into your projects as Particular emitters, Form particle objects and Mir 3D models, including animation, normals, texture coordinates and transformations.
Trapcode Particular (NEW)
Create organic 3D particle effects, complex motion graphics elements and more. Build particle effects visually in the powerful Designer. Trapcode Particular is GPU-accelerated and includes physics for simulating air and bounce, fluid dynamics, flocking and more. Particular uses the After Effects 3D camera and lights, and allows you to use 3D models, text, masks and OBJ sequences as emitters.
Create immortal particle grids and 3D particle objects with Trapcode Form. Build effects visually in the powerful Designer. Dissolve your particle objects in fluids or create complex fractal animations. Create stunning MoGraph with 3D models, text, masks, and animated OBJ sequences. Drive animation with sound and dissolve text and logos. Form uses the After Effects 3D camera and lights, and is GPU-accelerated.
Create 3D objects, Fractal Surfaces, Terrains and Wireframes in After Effects with Trapcode Mir. Design flowing surfaces and abstract shapes for motion graphics or import 3D OBJ Models. Replicate and fractally distort your Mir surfaces and OBJs, and display them as polygons or vertices. Mir runs on the GPU and works with After Effects’ 3D camera and lights.
Trapcode 3D Stroke
Create organic 3D Shapes and Lines from your masks with Trapcode 3D Stroke. Logos, text and paths take on lives of their own. 3D Stroke preset shapes give you starting points. Get pinpoint control over shapes, colors, looping and more.
Create ultra-fast, 3D light ray effects with Trapcode Shine. Design volumetric light rays for your text, mograph or footage. Simulate clean rays or fractal smokiness with depth. Shine is After Effects 3D camera-aware.
Create stylized glints and glows for motion graphics and text with Trapcode Starglow. Add Glimmer to your highlights with 49 Presets to get you started. Starglow is fully customizable and easy to use.
Trapcode Sound Keys
Instant Audio-driven Motion Graphics in After Effects with Trapcode Sound Keys. Visualize your audio for motion graphics and use any audio to drive animation and effects. With Sound Keys you can isolate audio bands for total control.
Create 3D geometries animated along a path and more with Trapcode Tao. With Tao you can generate geometric shapes from masks, paths, and motion. Tao works with After Effects’ 3D camera and lights.
With Trapcode Lux, After Effects lights are made visible. Create 3D Volumetric point and spot lights and add Drama and realism to your 3D Comps. Lux is fully customizable and camera-aware.
Instantly clone and offset animated layers with Trapcode Echospace. Automate complex, multi-layered 3D animation with ease and control layer instances without writing expressions. With EchoSpace, you can create dynamic ‘falling domino’ or ‘follow-the-leader’ animations.
Create infinite (360 degree) backgrounds for After Effects 3D with Trapcode Horizon. Use image maps or create a multicolor gradient. Horizon is fully AE 3D camera-aware.
Trapcode Suite is made up of several different tools that each have their own compatibility info. Every tool runs on Mac and Windows and is compatible with Adobe After Effects, while some of the tools also work in additional host-applications.
