What I learned at NAB - Part 1

The Plug-in pavillion which was next to our booth had some of the coolest new things on the show floor. In no particular order:

The new version of Particular from Trapcode will support 3D particles and depth of field. Best of all it is a free upgrade.

Peder also told me about the launch of Trapcode People, a site intended to promote the "free exchange of creativity". Lots of cool files for exchange there.

If you own an Autodesk stone+wire disk array, and have been frustrated about not being able to use it with After Effects (or Premiere Pro for that matter) then Creative Technology C>me might be just the solution you were looking for.

GridIron debuted Nucleo Pro (intro pricing $295 US) which will adds speculative rendering, background rendering, and commit to disk capabilities to AE.

Cinema 4D has without a doubt in my mind the best 3D integration with After Effects. Maxon introduced Mograph a Cinema 4D module that easily creates very cool 3D motion graphic elements.

More NAB discoveries to come...
