Optical Flares for Nuke Available Tuesday!

The day has finally come… Optical Flares for Nuke will be available this Tuesday!  The Nuke version includes several brand new textures and presets along with several new features and improvements.

NOTE: Originally I decided not offer upgrade pricing since this version required major customization, including rebuilding the UI and all new 3D engine BUT, recently I’ve decided to reward our past Optical Flares customers with a Cross-Grade pricing of $99.95 for a limited time.  So if you already own Optical Flares for AE, you can get the Nuke version for 50% off.

Optical Flares for Nuke: $199.95
Cross Grade from After Effects Version:  $99.95

3D Noise in Element 3D V2!
One of my favorite new features in Element 3D V2 is the new 3D Noise options and deformation!

I don’t know what these things are but I feel like eating ice cream and licorice now! […]

This blue beauty was rendered with Raytracing, not Element 3D ? Am I right?
This car looks so good & detailed. I hope we can see it in the Vehicle Pack later this year.

Like I said, Videocopilo has way much more respect for costumers than Adobe. So, Andrew, are you going to star 'renting" After Effects? :)

Flour Fusion: Real Particles
Creating particles in After Effects is awesome! We have all used Particular and Particle world but why not combine those particles with some real ones! Sometimes you need to create elements that are so complex and organic that you are better off taking out the camera and making a mess. In this example we use […]
