Noise Industries, developer of visual effects tools for the post-production and broadcast markets, says its development partner, Yanobox, has released Yanobox Nodes for the FxFactory platform.

Yanobox Nodes is a visual effects generator designed to work inside Apple Final Cut Pro products, Apple Motion and Adobe After Effects CS3/CS4/CS5. Its toolset provides artists with the ability to link together graphics and text for the creation of 3D animations leveraging the speed of a GPU accelerated platform. Users can distribute graphics and text in 3D space into various shapes such as spheres, circles, and spirals and connect them with a succession of dancing lines and curves.

The dynamic user interface enables parameter customization and built-in oscillation, and key-framing abilities add to animation options. Users can further personalize each visual narrative by adding custom images to nodes.

Yanobox Nodes is available for $99 USD via the Noise Industries website ( A trial version is also included with the standard FxFactory installer.
