Volume n’ Tricks

Design from new perspectives and amaze yourself: Give beautiful volume to your layers without using 3D layers or cameras.

Save your time, giving volume to your design.

Volume n’ Tricks is a single button that you can dock in your workspace. The button calls the UI whenever you need it.

Volume n’ Tricks is a handy toolkit within After Effects:

  • Create 24 isometric projections (3*4 * RTL and LTR) + 8 skew (bias) projections.
  • Create a scalable isometric grid.
  • For text and shape layers, define an extrusion with a unique volume FX
  • Set up light and its brightness angle
  • Cast a (mimicked) shadow and manage its property
  • Apply a gradient and choose different blend modes
  • Fine-tune a pretty smooth light falloff.
  • Extrusion is available for shape and text layers, and also vector files (illustrator .ai) and .eps
  • Footage can be projected in all directions
  • And much more…

Everything is in 2D, using a single flat layer. You can add keys to almost all properties, especially Extrusion.
Vn’T doesn’t duplicate layers, except to backup a text or illustrator layer (.eps, .ai): You work on a single layer 😉

Your colleagues or friends do not need the plugin to open or modify your files.

Design from new perspectives and amaze yourself:

Turn your layers in 2.5D without 3D layers or Cameras!

Tip: If you create volumes from complex shapes or just want to move your extruded layers easier, we invite you to pre-comp them:
it will be faster and handier.
