Updates: CycoreFX HD, Path Tools and Sphere Utilities Updates


CycoreFX HD 1.7.1:
This update features new random seed controls in Particle World and Particle Systems II and a start time control in Pixel Polly. Light Sweep now has 32 bpc support and an improved light model for all bit depths. Also included are 35 plug-ins with 32 bpc support (float). CycoreFX HD is 64-bit native for After Effects CS5.x.

CycoreFX HD is the professional version of CycoreFX that allows work at higher bit depths. CycoreFX HD also contains several new plug-ins such as the more advanced Rainfall and Snowfall simulators. Rainfall and Snowfall allows to easily and quickly create "real-looking" rain and snow when there is no time to get into a complex particle generator. The HD package features an impressive total of 73 plug-ins.

Upgrade to the HD package and you get:

  • 16 bpc support in all effects.
  • 12 additional plug-ins.
  • 32 bpc support (float) in 35 effects (more coming).
  • Added functionality, eg. motionblur, support for AE lights, more controls and options.

Cycore FX Path Tools 1.1.1: This update features new composite with original controls in Rakka and Wiggle Stroke. Path Tools is 64-bit native for After Effects CS5.x.

Path Tools is a package containing two powerful plug-ins, Rakka and Wiggle Stroke. The basic requirement for both plug-ins is a mask path. Rakka also needs a layer to "rack-up", or repeat, along the selected mask path. From there, the combinations are almost endless to create cool and original looking animations, backgrounds or effects. You can create stunning animations with minimal effort ― animations that were once only possible with particle generators. Using Wiggle Stroke you can do anything from "wiggling" frames to completely crazy looking thread/wire animations, all from a single mask path. Path Tools supports 32 bpc color (float) and will become an indispensable addition to your toolbox.

Cycore FX Sphere Utilities 1.1.1:
This update features speed improvements across all four plug-ins. Sphere Utilities is 64-bit native for After Effects CS5.x.

Sphere Utilities is a package containing four plug-ins that are essentially tools to be used to create, edit and animate spherical maps. Using Sphere Utilities these tasks become as easy as moving text from left to right on the screen. Need to draw a line from Seattle to Uppsala or animate an airplane flying from Melbourne to LA crossing the date line? Sphere Utilities is a must have. Crossing the date line is a task that currently involves a lot of manual work, duplication of the layer and hand-matching the motion. These animations can then be used directly in After Effects with CC Sphere, or any other plug-in that supports spherical mapping, or in your favorite 3D application. Sphere Utilities supports 32 bpc color (float) and will be a welcome addition to your toolbox.
