Sure Target 2 and Optical Flares Update!

In keeping with the habit of providing the most valuable FREE content and tools for After Effects on the net, we are making one of our favorite free presets even better! Sure Target, our fast, easy-to-use Camera animation tool is easier and more powerful with Version 2.

Version 2.0 features easy 1-click rigging and un-rigging, so you don’t have to remember technical details for setting it up in a pinch so you can concentrate on the design of your project. It even makes the layer 3D so you don’t forget! We have also included improved organic movement control as the camera moves through 3D space. Expect the update soon!

OPTICAL FLARES UPDATE:
Our upcoming product for creating next-generation 3D lens flares, Optical Flares is nearly completed, however I see an opportunity to make it even better with a little more time.

Optical Flares is capable of building amazing 3D lens flare presets with precise and realistic qualities. Now imagine the power of a free network where customers could upload and share these amazing presets online?

The Video Copilot Preset Network is a perfect solution to continue the spirit of the website of sharing and contributing knowledge and presets, as well as enhancing the value of the product. This will also allow the style of lens flares to evolve beyond the built-in presets as artists develop them.

With this in mind, we have decided to wait about a month to give us time to incorporate this preset network and improve the built-in preset browser to allow multiple collections to be loaded at once. This is an exciting new endeavor and we know customers will benefit even more from this amazing software plug-in.

I'm Sorry Shape Layers! I love you!
I must confess… I was never a big fan of shape layers…  we just didn’t get along.  I was used to using masks but suddenly (around AE CS3) the same mask tool began creating Red vector shapes. At first, they seemed cool enough but after accidentally adding shape layers to my comps, instead of masks, I lashed […]
