Trapcode Mir


Welcome to the Trapcode Mir Help manual. The Help is organized by subject in the navigation bar on the left. Click the subject you need help on and the corresponding instructions will open in this frame.

Trapcode Mir creates quick-rendering 3D shapes that are built on the power of OpenGL, previewing your effect instantly so you can keep on designing. You’ll play with a simple polygon mesh that is packed with 3D features, like fractal noise for distortion, texture mapping, repeating geometry, and After Effects light integration.

Mir generates smoothly shaded objects or flowing organic elements, abstract landscapes and nebula structures — all beautifully animated with light and depth. Break the speed barrier in After Effects with motion design that is fast, flexible and fun.
