The Plugin Site
has announced the release of Plugin Galaxy for After Effects, this time for Mac OS X. It’s a collection of 20 different After Effects plug-ins which sport 129 different video effects.
Designed specifically for Adobe After Effects 5.5, Plugin Galaxy sports effects like transparency manipulation, blurring, texture and pattern generation, noise creation, mirroring and warping. Metal, chrome, neon, pop art, glass, rainbow, sunshine and star effects are included as well.
You can enhance, colorize and add edges to animations and videos with Plugin Galaxy, or encrypt them as well. The collection also features some effects that its developer said can be rarely found, like feedback, grids, and zooming — all of which can be animated over time to produce motion effects. The plug-ins have sliders, check boxes, color settings and preview coordinates to help you manipulate them to their fullest potential.
Plugin Galaxy for AE is available for both Windows and Mac OS; the Mac OS X version requires Adobe After Effects 5.5 while the Mac OS 9 version works with After Effects 4.x, 5.x, Adobe Premiere 6 and Final Cut Pro.
The full version of Plugin Galaxy for AE costs US$99; the Mac OS X upgrade is $25. It can be
purchased online, and demo versions are available for download as well.
