VFX 2024.1 now features obscuration and a Light Ball core projection option. As groundbreaking as Real Lens Flares itself, obscuration allows you to add fully integrated flare effects to any shot! Light Ball core projection gives flares a physical presence in the scene, and VFX Spot Clone Tracker helps you improve your tracking game with a new Tracker Only feature.
VFX 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 also includes tools for adding shadows and reflections that speed up some of the essential parts of creating a professional composite.
VFX 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 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 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. Real Lens Flares simulates real glass and legendary lenses to render the most beautiful and realistic lens flares, with dozens of presets to match any mood or style.
VFX 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.
