Bring your motion graphics into a new dimension by using 3D models and animated OBJ sequences as particle grids. Choose from Form’s newly-expanded library of over 60 OBJs, or easily load your own models using the new OBJ Loading Panel directly in After Effects or within the Designer.
Use any image in your composition as a particle by assigning it to a 2D sprite or textured polygon. Form 3 now includes over 270 still and animated sprite images, easily loaded directly within After Effects or in the Designer via the new Sprite Loading Panel.
Form’s particles can react to the audio in your After Effects composition. They can be set up to change size, position, opacity, and many other properties in response to any audio source in your comp.
Get more control over your particle parameters with the new graphing system, updated for Form 3. Animate controls over time for the color, size, opacity, and dispersion of your particles, as well as their fractal and audio reactivity. Draw your curves from scratch, or start with presets and adjust.
Form uses After Effects’ 3D Camera and Lights so you can fully integrate your particle Effects with your motion graphics and live-action vfx shots.
Form 3 Includes over 70 new fully-customizable Designer presets for creating backgrounds and motion design elements.
