Red Giant 2024.2 features Red Giant Geo, a new tool that lets you texture, light, and clone 3D objects in After Effects. Artists can use any layer or comp to customize textures and materials using the full power of After Effects. Rendering performance in Trapcode Particular has been improved significantly and there are new custom blur maps for Bokeh, as well as improvements to Looks’ UI. And the new native support for German and Korean allows artists to use the software in their preferred language.


A simple yet powerful tool for lighting, texturing, and cloning 3D objects in After Effects

Introducing Geo, an all-new plug-in for Adobe After Effects for texturing, lighting, and cloning 3D models. With the aim of offering a simple but powerful 3D solution, approachable yet capable enough for any skill level, Geo slides neatly into your existing After Effects workflow. Select models from the Maxon Capsule library or import your own and fully customize their textures and materials. Create quick, easy arrays in a variety of shapes with the cloner controls. Fully sell your scene by casting shadows directly from your geometry onto any selected layer in your composition.


Grab the model you want and go. Seven supported formats include C4D, OBJ, FBX, GLB, glTF, DAE, and 3DS. This means less hunting for just the right file and more getting right to the good stuff.


Assign up to five materials, each with its own set of physically-based properties, including base color, roughness, metalness, subsurface, transmission, opacity, emmission, and bump (normal and height). Modify or create any texture with the full power of After Effects at your disposal. Get a head start with one of the included surface presets or build entirely from scratch. It’s never been easier to iterate and vary your 3D scenes.


Create realistic glass, water, and other translucent materials with Geo’s refractions based on the real-world Index of refraction table. Not only do they look beautiful, they render crazy fast!


Generate quick and easy arrays in box, sphere, or cylindrical shapes with the integrated cloner. This approachable set of controls will feel familiar to artists accustomed to Cinema 4D’s MoGraph tools. Duplicate, scale, and rotate your geometry on all three axes to create asteroid belts, armies of marching ants, spinning smart phones, or mesmerizing abstract art.


Immerse your geometry into the scene with robust environmental controls. Adjust the color, intensity and angles of the built-in sun light. Assign refraction and environment maps for interactive refractions, image-based lighting and reflections. Get just the right color and strength of your shadows. Define the visibility and fog falloff for a cinematic fade into the distance.


While also a part of the environment group, this slick little feature is worth its own mention. Control the position and rotations of shadows cast from your geometry simply using the AE layer transforms of any selected comp layer. Works amazingly for camera-tracked VFX shots, motion graphics product shots and more. Separate your shadow pass from your geometry for complete compositing control.


Trapcode brings the power of 3D particle systems right into After Effects. Use particle emitters to create fire, water, smoke, snow and other organic visual effects, or create technological marvels and user interfaces with immortal particle grids and 3D forms. With a subscription to Red Giant, get even more 3D geometry input options thanks to Cineware .c4d file import. Use Cinema 4D files (including animation) in particle systems or as 3D models in After Effects.


Magic Bullet is a set of plugins for color correction, finishing and film looks. With powerful real-time color grading tools, video denoising, and cosmetic retouching, you’ll have everything you need to make your footage look great, right on your editing timeline.


Universe is a set of video transition and effects plugins for editors and motion graphics artists. Stylize your footage with authentic retro and modern day looks, and generate beautiful looping backgrounds, glows, text animations and other effects. Universe gives you better results and more shortcuts than anything in your host app.


VFX is a set of plugins for keying, tracking, cleanup, and visual effects compositing, right inside of After Effects. VFX makes it easy to create seamless composites and gives you tools for fast, accurate motion tracking, lens distortion and object replacement/removal. And if you need beautiful glows, distortions and lens flares – VFX has got that too.
