Hi folks – today we are releasing Universe 2.1, an update to Red Giant Universe, our GPU accelerated plugins for editors and motion graphics artists.
With a focus on awesome, easy-to-use text effects, the The Universe 2.1 update includes 6 new text tools and updates to 2 existing effects.
- AV Club – Mimic the lo-fi, noisy text you find on ancient video tapes, old infomercials and local access cable channel shows.
- Luster – Give your text a slick 1980’s retro look. Luster applies a metal sheen to text, and includes a refraction-based bevel for a glassy simulated 3D look.
- Title Motion – Create text and shapes and then instantly add dynamic animations that bring them on and off screen. Great for titles, lower thirds, callouts and more.
- Ecto – Create haunting, evolving titles with this glowing fractal-based effect, inspired by Ghostbusters and Stranger Things.
- Long Shadow – Apply a colored, long shadow to text, logo or shape, for both classic and modern motion design.
- Glo Fi II – Give text an ethereal moody look by instantly adding silky smooth, self-animating, fractal-based glow effects to titles. A simple UI make it easy to apply evolving, organic glows.
- Line – This update adds the ability to add text at the start and endpoint of a line.
- Holomatrix II – This update includes blurred, chromatic distortions, a new strobe effect and much more.
