VFX Suite 2 introduces Bang, a fully procedural 3D muzzle flash generator with 3D positioning, allowing for the quick and easy addition of muzzle flashes to your footage. Bang gives full creative control over the look of muzzle flashes, including shape, color, decay and duration.
VFX Suite 2 also upgrades the Primatte Keyer to be compatible with Apple Metal GPU acceleration for optimal performance on supported systems.
VFX Suite offers a powerful toolkit for realistic visual effects composites in After Effects. With Supercomp, light and atmospheric effects interact with all of your layers and the elements of a scene in a far more natural way than can be modeled with a simple stack of 2D layers. Lens Distortion Matcher makes it easy to match any camera lens, whether it’s wide angle, fisheye, GoPro or anything else, so your composited elements fit perfectly into your shot. VFX Suite also includes tools for adding shadows and reflections that speed up some of the essential parts of creating a professional composite.
VFX Suite gives you fast, automatic chroma keying. Whether you are using a green screen or blue screen, Primatte Keyer can regularly pull a perfect key with a single click. Primatte's cleanup tools help turn even the most difficult shots into solid and professional composites. Take your chroma keying results even further by using Primatte in combination with Supercomp's post-keying tools.
VFX Suite features lighting-fast, accurate planar tracking, right inside of After Effects — no need to step out of AE for great corner-pin tracking results anymore. Whether you’re pinning a rectangular sign or something not rectangular at all, King Pin Tracker has you covered. Also included is Spot Clone Tracker, a powerful tool for quickly removing anything from skin blemishes to unwanted objects in your shot.
VFX Suite’s Optical Glow generates a blazing fast, drop-dead gorgeous, photo-realistic glow effect — great for use in visual effects and motion graphics. It’s easy to use and is by far the most beautiful, highest-quality glow ever made for Adobe After Effects. Knoll Light Factory gives you 3D lens flares from Industrial Light and Magic, and includes over 200 presets based on films from the 1960’s to the present day.
VFX Suite makes it easy to generate beautiful prismatic displacement effects for visual effects and motion graphics. Unlike the Displacement Map effect in After Effects, Chromatic Displacement uses the displacement image as a height map, which gives you beautiful, organic results — perfect for creating force fields, heat ripples, light refractions, cloaking effects, and much more.
