Trapcode Suite 13: What's new and stuff

Recommended Posts

I just thought I'd pop in and drop a few notes on the new Trapcode Suite. Starting with the TL;DR:



TAO is new. Make 3D geometry from 3D light paths. Reflections, IBL, repeaters, more. Kinda like if MIR and 3D Stroke had a baby.



MIR: a few new things, you can loop and control your fractals a lot better, render quads, do a second wireframe render pass. Much better VRAM management for hefty cards.



Particular: The brand new "Effects Builder" pop-out window. Preview your settings in real time, browse and save presets and "blocks" which are subsets of categories (much like MB Looks).



Shine: Connect to 3D Lights without having to use expressions. Mix fractal noise with shine automatically. New color maps.



Starglow: NEW COLOR MAPZ!



Sound Keys: Almost forgot this. New color mapping and quantization of the meters. Turn on and off UI elements to isolate the meter outputs.
