Effects

2D Particles

The BCC 2D Particles filter breaks the source image into particles and disperses them in 2D space.

This filter also provides a variety of explosion, velocity, and gravity controls to adjust the particles movement. You can also control the size, shape, density, and opacity of the particles, and create custom particle shapes and scatter wipes. Use the auto-animation feature to easily generate explosion effects, or animate the filter manually for precise control.

Comet

The BCC Comet filter creates an auto-animated comet that streaks across the screen. The comet is compromised of particles whose sizes, shapes, and colors can be adjusted. You can also set the length and speed of the effect, adjust the camera perspective, position the starting and ending points of the comet, and apply a gravitational force to adjust the comet’s movement.

When you play the effect, the comet’s position automatically animates from the source point to the destination point.

Organic Strands

The BCC Organic Strands filter is a particle based effect used to generate 3D strands with interesting looks and convenient animation options.

Particle Array 3D

The BCC Particle Array 3D filter is a particle based generator style filter. Particle Array 3D generates a 3D array of particles and offers several interesting ways of manipulating the array based on:

  • Graph controls
  • Alternate AE layers
  • Fractal noise patterns
  • Random dispersion

The filter supports AE lights and camera for simple integration into AE 3D compositions. It also includes an integrated Beat Reactor group for creating dynamic animations directly influenced by audio layers.

Particle Emitter 3D

The BCC Particle Emitter 3D filter enables the generation of particle stream effects, and can be used to create a large variety of natural occurring effects such as:

  • Smoke
  • Fog
  • Clouds
  • Dust
  • Fireworks
  • Swarming bees

Users of Adobe After Effects can take advantage of the filters built-in support for AE native camera and lighting systems to generate dramatic scene fly-throughs and for non-AE users, the filter includes it’s own built-in 3D camera and lighting options.

This OpenGL based filter is hardware assisted for enhanced render performance.

Pin Art 3D

The BCC Pin Art 3D filter is a particle based generator style filter that simulates the look of the desk toy where metal (or plastic) pins can be displaced by objects creating a 3D relief.

The filter can use the values of layers in the After Effects composition to define the appearance and arrangement of the particles making up the “Pin Screen” such as:

  • Color
  • Luma
  • Alpha 

Like a 3D-capable LED or halftone type of effect, it can be used to achieve a wide range of both 2D and 3D-looking surfaces. Pin Art 3D supports AE lights and camera for simple integration into AE 3D compositions. Features such as sophisticated built-in wipes and an integrated Beat Reactor group allow for creating dynamic animations within the filter, including animations directly influenced by audio layers.

Rain

The** BCC Rain** filter is an auto-animated filter which generates realistic rain effects. You can composite the rain over any clip in your timeline.

The filter allows you to control the apparent depth of the effect as well as fine tune the:

  • Density
  • Speed
  • Direction
  • Color of the drops

The built in PixelChooser, with integrated mocha planar tracking allows for greater control over which areas of the image the filter should affect.

Snow

The BCC Snow filter is an auto-animated snow generator which can composite snow over a sky color or an image layer. The filter offers extensive options for customizing the effect and allows you to create drifts or make flakes pile up along the edges of an alpha channel.

The built in PixelChooser, with integrated mocha planar tracking allows for greater control over which areas of the image the filter should affect.

Sparks

The BCC Sparks filter generates auto-animated sparks that shoot from a point and disperse. The sparks’ sizes, shapes, and colors can be adjusted. You can also adjust the speed of the sparks, apply a gravitational force, and add an interaction layer.

Wild Cards

The BCC Wild Cards filter is used to generate an array of 3D cards with interesting and convenient animation options .

In Depth: Rain Generators

It has been cloudy here all day and is just starting to sprinkle here so I thought it might be a good time to update this...
