Trapcode Suite refreshed for AE CC 2015

Trapcode Suite has been updated for CC 2015. One problem remains with Sound Keys - it cannot generate new keyframes when run in AE CC 2015. Your old project will load and work fine, it is just new generation that doesn't work. This issue will require a fix from Adobe, they are aware and on it.

Because of this issue we recommend that you keep CC 2014 side by side. The CC 2015 installer by defualt removes any previous installations, so read this before you install CC 2015.

More info and how to get the updates.

Tove Styrke music video by Slobodan Zivic

The super cool and talented Swedish artist Tove Styrke has a music video for the awesome track "Even If I'm Loud It Doesn't Mean I'm Talking to You" directed by Slobodan Zivic that uses Trapcode Mir to create beautiful geometric patterns. Also, check out the sweet 303 that solos at 2:10 -- just lovely.

FITC Tokyo 2015 Titles

Trapcode Form was used in these amazing titles for the FITC Tokyo 2015 conference. Lots of tools and tricks are used of course, and Form plays perhaps a small role here but a good example of non-obvious and creative use of Form. Read more about the making of in this great Motionographer article.

Nicolas notes here in the comments "We actually used FORM quite a bit in this. Most of the textures of the glitch were generated with form."

These titles feel fresh, exciting, new and yet relatable. The music is great too. It's pretty much a perfect work in my opinion. Enjoy! And congrats to the makers!
