Trapcode Form - Multiple Forms

Multiple Forms (NEW)

For the first time ever, explore endless creative possibilities when you combine multiple Forms (particle grids or OBJ-based systems) in the same 3D space. Create beautiful, complex effects through the interaction of different forms, all within one instance of Form. Forms in multiple form setups can share parameter settings (such as disperse, fractal field and more), and can be saved as a single preset.
