Red Giant has released Trapcode Suite 13, an upgrade to its set of tools for creating motion graphics and visual effects in Adobe After Effects.
In addition to major updates to Trapcode Particular, Shine and Mir, the release introduces Trapcode Tao, a new plugin for generating 3D geometries along a path. The update also includes new features in Trapcode Form, Sound Keys and Starglow.
Trapcode Particular’s new Effects Builder lets artists drag and drop blocks of particle behaviors and styles, and includes a built-in instant preview window for immediate feedback. In addition to the library of Sprites, users can choose from more than 130 new presets to help kick off any project. You can instantly create flames, spaceflight, fireworks, explosions, smoke and more with tools to customize just about every detail. For existing users who prefer to work with particle effects the old-school way, Trapcode Particular 2.5 includes its standard After Effects user interface.
Trapcode Suite 13 is available today and can be purchased for $999 ($199 upgrade) through Red Giant. Customers can purchase individual products or the entire Trapcode Suite 13. Complete pricing info is available at www.redgiant.com/products/trapcode-suite .
