Mylenium Presets for Trapcode Form Pack 1 - Backgrounds - featured

Gorgeous presets for Trapcode Form!

This collection of After Effects projects is supposed to provide some base elements for your design work. Each file contains one or more compositions that can be used as backgrounds by themselves or can serve as complementary components in your own compositions.


Highlights

How do I use them?

You can work with the projects in two ways. Either you open the files, adjust the settings and add your own elements to them or you import the projects into other projects. You have full access to the effects parameters as well as each individual composition.

All projects are generated 100% inside After Effects without any external footage sources. The only times when this happens is when linked audio files are used to drive animation. In these projects you only need to replace the audio and adjust the frequency ranges. Keep in mind that the perception of sound and music is different for everyone and that different types of music contain different frequencies and amplitudes, drastically changing the result of the output.

Examples

01 - Square Dance

Using a custom particle shape with low opacity, the particles serve as a base to create an interesting additive blend that is further accentuated by adding a glare effect.

This project also uses Trapcode Starglow.

available in PAL, NTSC, HD 720, HD 1080
squares 02 - Golden Squares

An infinite stream of squares is traveling right to left, complemented by subtly moving background squares. Furthermore fine curvy lines give the illusion of circuitry far in the background.

This project also uses Trapcode Starglow.

03 - Flight of the Phoenix

Similar to a underwater snail species known as Spanish Dancer, this setup creates a string of mirrored flapping tentacles. The look is refined by a second instance following the movement to create the illusion of fire.

04 - Plasmaball

Held by strings of electrical arcs, a plasma ball spins and wobbles.

Watch Movie

This project makes excessive use of custom layer
maps for Displacment, Opacity and Particle Size,
generated in sub-comps.

available in PAL, NTSC, HD 720, HD 1080
05 - Spiral Array

An array of tapered spirals with randomized positions that continually "drill" into one direction.

Watch Movie (pops)

This project uses an animated displacement map whose parameters are linked to expressions. Color is achieved using a Quick Map.

available in PAL, NTSC, HD 720, HD 1080
06 - Blinkenlights

Three stripes that have a unique wave motion
based on a displacement map. Lights that
switch colorsare added on top as a second
instance with a custom particle shape.

View Movie (pops)

Each stripe is placed in a separate composition for
maximum flexibility. All parameters can be controlled
from the main composition using expressions.

available in PAL, NTSC, HD 720, HD 1080
07 - Blinkenstripes

As a design variation on the previous project, the
setup shares certain components, but also intro-
duces new ones like a different switching pattern
for the lights

This project also uses Trapcode Shine.

available in PAL, NTSC, HD 720, HD 1080
08 - The Eye

Two instances of Form are combined to create an eye/ torch surrounded by a halo.Based on a sound file, waves of energy flow thru them.
View Movie (pops)

An audio file is used to drive the intensity of the fractal displacement, particle size and opacity
Replace the audio in the project and adjust the range of Audio Reactors to see the influence.
available in PAL, NTSC, HD 720, HD 1080
09 - Spiral Blink

Based on an audio input, flashes of light travel through
a gently but steadily rotating spiral.

Watch Movie (pops)

Replace the audio in the project and adjust the
range of Audio Reactor 1 to see the influence.

available in PAL, NTSC, HD 720, HD 1080
10 - Dancing Tentacles

Modulated using Quick Maps, strings converge in one point and move like hair in the windbased on fractal motion which is controlled by audio.

View Movie (pops)

Replace the audio in the project and adjust the range of Audio Reactor 1 to see the influence.

available in PAL, NTSC, HD 720, HD 1080
11 - Numbers Soup

View Movies (pops)

Built from multiple instances, bubbles with numbers and letters emit from a boiling surface. The effect is intensified by a steamy environment and fake volumetric shadows. Because of the multiple layers and the extensive use of custom particles, motion blur and depth of field, rendering can take up to 5 minutes per frame at HD1080 resolution.

This project also uses Trapcode Shine.

available in PAL, NTSC, HD 720, HD 1080

 

All presets require Adobe After Effects® 7 or Adobe After Effects CS3 as well as the Trapcode Form plug-in. Additional plug-ins may be required as stated on the project-specific explanations.
