PLUG-INS
VC Reflect Plug-in Out Soon

We have developed a fancy new plug-in for After Effects that simplifies the creation of 2D reflections as seen one of our early tutorials. The plug-in offers many helpful new features and a tutorial will be out soon. The best part of all, you get it absolutely FREE.

Patrick should be posting the tutorial sometime tomorrow and the project file will include the Plug-in. Should work with AE 7 and newer and when 64 bit After Effects comes around, we’ll port it as well.

NOTE: Our Easy-Reflect preset will most likely be retired since it lacks many features and relies on awkward recipe. Look, we had some fun… but I think it’s time we see other people. We’ll still be friends.

ALSO: QuickMatte, my other pet project, will be out when I have time to explain how to use it fully. I haven’t had a lot of time to dedicate to it with so many projects going on but I will tell you that, everything the plug-in does can be done in AE, it just makes things easier. It will be out soon, I was planning on releasing after the 100th tutorial sometime.

Reflecting on the Past

A long time ago, I made a tutorial on simulating reflections over a watery surface which I had to revisit recently. I cleaned the project up a bit and now you can use it as a template with your own video. Play around with the displacement map and you can get some interesting results.
