The easy way to do complex layer deformations in After Effects. Three main features: Mesh Warp, Displacement Mapping and Render Primitives.
Intuitive Character animation. Shape morphing. Terrain creation. Water simulation. Organic backgrounds. And much more.
3D MESH WARP
Move and rotate your 3D layer in 3D space with FreeForm’s Mesh Controls. Position X,Y,Z; Rotation X,Y, Z; and Anchor Point X,Y,Z controls. Add up to 400 control points and corresponding tangents, each of which can be controlled with bezier handles.
Gives you the ability to create detailed organic shapes quickly and easily. Use grayscale “maps” to define the height of displacement on your mesh. A black & white cloud pattern can quickly become a mountain range. A simple gradient makes a curved ramp. Displacement maps can also be animated, giving you rippling water, flowing curtains and blowing flags.
A very intuitive, easy to use method for aligning or breaking your tangent handles. Create smooth curves or sharp angles easily with FreeForm’s Tangent Alignment. You can choose to turn alignment on or off.
3D MESH CONTROLS
Move and rotate your 3D layer in 3D space with FreeForm’s Mesh Controls. Position X,Y,Z; Rotation X,Y, Z; and Anchor Point X,Y,Z controls.
