  • New features to Form, Tao and Sound Keys
  • New presets for Mir and Tao
  • Bug fixes for Particular, Form, Mir, Tao, Form, and Lux.

Now to get more specific…

Trapcode Sound Keys 1.4

Trapcode Particular 2.6

  • Effect Builder updates:
    • New switch for disabling motion blur within the builder
    • Minor bug fixes

Trapcode Mir 2.1

  • New Presets – there are 25 brand new presets (a total of 43 in all) to help jumpstart your work
  • New feature – Visibility settings accommodate higher-resolution projects
  • Minor bug fixes

Trapcode Lux 1.4

  • Minor bug fixes

Trapcode Tao 1.1

  • New Presets – 25 New presets have been added to help jumpstart your work.
  • Negative OAS Duration – The OAS Duration property now allows negative values (see below).
  • Faster Rendering with New Light Modes – In addition to “Entire Path” and “Build Up,” there are now 3 new Tao Light Modes that can speed up render times (see below).
  • Minor Bug fixes

TAO – Allow negative OAS Duration:

When OAS Duration is set to negative, the OAS sampling happens from Current Time and backwards in time. So for example, if OAS Duration is set to -10, and Current Time is 10 (the TLI is at 10 seconds) the OAS values are sampled from 10 seconds and back to zero. This is useful for example for audio visualizations, so that for example a beat in the values can travel over time over the path.


New TAO Lights modes:

  • Build-up and Remove
  • Build-up (fast)
  • Build-up and Remove (fast)

The new Build-up and Remove mode is useful when building huge, long structures with TAO Lights and only the newest part is actually visible. With this new mode the plug-in can disregard the older part of the path, making it faster.

The new Build-up (fast) and Build-up and Remove (fast) do not sample the real length of the path leading to much faster rendering for long paths.

All three new modes are really only useful when dealing with very long paths, tens of thousands of segments, where only the newest part of the path is visible.

    I from México and I have a question
    Are the price on your web site in dollars or mexican pesos?

    1. The prices on our site and in US dollars, so the Trapcode Suite Suite 14 is $999.00 USD.
      I hope this helps!
