AE Plugin Newton 2 -- Anyone Using It?

Recommended Posts

From what I can tell Newton 2 is sort of like having the dynamics from Mograph inside After Effects. Still seems like a pretty young product and other than a review by 3D World (which doesn't load for non-subscribers AFAICT) it's hard to find any user reviews out there.

Anyone here have experience with this plugin and/or know someone in your studio who uses it? Definitely has potential but holding off until I hear some first-hand experiences. Also guessing version 3 probably isn't too far away, but hard to tell as plugins can go a long time before updates show up, once they reach a certain level of evolution.

 

Any tips appreciated.

Yes, people are using it. Like here:

Thanks Todd. I have seen that and it's encouraging. Thought I read somewhere that only a small portion of it was done with that plugin, although either way it seems pretty cool.

 

However I wasn't asking if Apple uses it but whether anyone here does and hopefully to get their experiences in terms of stability, etc. ;)

I've used it on a few projects and have had to issues at all in terms of stability. I use it with AE CC but I don't think I have used it since the last couple of CC updates.

 

It's a super fun plugin to use once you get the hang of it. It is fantastic for doing 2D fluid simulations as well.

Thanks for the info Spunj. One of the things I've been trying to get a sense for is, is there anything this plugin can do that you can't do in C4D using a flat perspective and Mograph + Sketch and Toon materials? I was experimenting a bit yesterday and don't use S&T that often, but it seemed like it was possible.
