Trapcode Mir and Trapcode Suite 12 released

Trapcode Suite 12 and Trapcode Mir is now released:

http://www.redgiantsoftware.com/blog/2012/07/31/trapcode-suite-12-is-here/

Here is a quick walk-through of Trapcode Mir:

For a more comprehensive description of functionality, check out the Trapcode Mir training.

Mir works in AE CS4 and up. (It may work in earlier versions but not tested and not supported)

Please note that Trapcode Mir is a GPU-based plug-in. It requires an Nvidia or AMD GPU that supports OpenGL 2.1 and has 512MB VRAM. It may work on lesser cards, for example a 256MB card may render SD comps, but crash on HD comps. Intel GPU's are currently not supported. We recommend a recent Ndvida/AMD GPU with 1024MB VRAM.

Other product fixes included in the Trapcode Suite 12 update (these are of course free updates):

  • Form and Particular  – fixes the issue of CS6 not updating sprite textures, layer emitters, and layer maps correctly when editing an input layer.
  • Lux 1.3.0 -  adds dither for 8 and 16 bit  (smoother gradients Lighting)
  • Echospace – fixes a bug with Layer Delay.

Trapcode Suite 12 ships with two Guru Packs by David Vinson for Shine and Particular, giving you 105 bonus presets for broadcast-ready design.

Kiss – A Love Story by RACECAR

Fresh of the the festival circuit, we proudly present the internet premiere of our short film Kiss.

"Le soleil est le passé, le terre est le présent et la lune est le futur."

As Paul Auster once said “The sun is the past, the earth is the present and the moon is the future.” In our first independent short film we explore the consequence of something as innocent as a kiss. A love story between the sun and the moon. We believe that every solar eclipse is the moons attempt to reach the sun...

Joseph notes: "We LOVE your Trapcode plugins, couldn't live without them. I think we use them in almost every project we make!

Trapcode plugins were used in Kiss - in the abstract section, when the sun and moon meet as well as in the pre explosion and the full explosion. (Particular the most)"
