This week we’ve launched a new category of $5 Effects. Simpler, useful tools that might ordinarily be packaged as part of a larger set of effects for much more money. But why pay for all the effects you don’t need when you can buy just what you need, when you need it, a la carte? The aim for $5 Effects category is to not only be affordable but to be a place for everyday tools that might otherwise not have a home. The first two original effects published are Reflect and Word Cloud.
Reflect is just what you guessed. Add it to an anything and you’ve instantly got a reflection in 3D space. You can animate the X, Y, and Z location and the X & Y rotation. It features a virtual floor that the image or object can disappear into. Adjust the reflection opacity and blur/falloff.
Word Cloud lets you swirl 10 words or phrases around an object with adjustable size, speed & direction, all without any keyframes. Paste 10 words into the text box and you’re ready to go.
