Adobe After Effects Presets #23

Plugin Projects for Adobe's AE / Trapcode By Ko Maruyama
A bunch of DMN readers have started to put together some nice presets.  We're still in a Particular frenzy - but it's a popular cause.  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, and  see what we've done.   Emerson has gone CRAZY - creating almost 40 presets in one session.

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.

Emerson at work

Emerson has come up with a series of his own crazy experiments.  Almost 40 different presets in this bundle.  You'll have to come back each day this week to get the daily preset.  Emerson is busy at his Mac every day, coming up with new ways to bend the software into interesting new animations.

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 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.
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.
