Some AE fun with Trapcode’s 3D Stroke
If After Effects is your thing, then you have a ton of plugins and already know about 3D Stroke. If you’re into dabbling, then you’ll want to check this plugin out as a trial at your first opportunity.
3D Stroke is just what the name implies – it allows for the creation of strokes to happen in 3D space much more easily than you can in After Effects by itself.
The fact is that I have never included an AE project file that contained third party plug-ins – it’s doesn’t allow for everyone to use the project file. However, I have to say that this plug-in is just plain fun to use and if you’re willing to give it a look, I’d download the trial for 3D Stroke right here
Once you play with it, you’ll know how often it is used and seen on TV and in content creation. It’s definitely one of those kinds of plug-ins. Let me know what you think.
I’ve also decided to give Blip.TV a try for playing back content. YouTube is popular, but it’s killing me in terms of quality – again let me know what you think of the new playback.
