ZERO-DAY by beeple

ZERO-DAY from beeple on Vimeo.

An awesome, high-paced, loud, techno/machine/robot animation by beeple (Mike Winkelman) with a warning message about cyber-warfare.

I specially love how the music drives the animation and the amazing finish on both animation and render.

Winkelman notes: "Trapcode Form worked great in the middle part to make the screens all glitchy as well as some ambient dust throughout."

Trapcode Tao (alternativley: Dao/Michi/้“) is a new plug-in I'm writing now. I've been longing for this ever since I made 3D Stroke. After developing Mir, I finally have everything in place. ้“ means "path" in Chinese and Japanese. It has to do with paths. 

Here are some more renders and a sketch I made when figuring out the triangles, normals and winding orders etc:

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.
