The organic, generative design plugin evolved from our critically acclaimed FOLD. FLOW lets you explore and iterate simple or complex curving and flowing forms in 3D space, using any video source in your timeline.
FLOW is especially useful for graphic design, visual arts, live performance, and motion design. It lets you explore new creative avenues, and the results will set you apart from the competition with outstanding, bold designs.
Available now for Adobe Premiere & After Effects, as well as Apple Final Cut Pro and Motion. Zoetrope has partnered with the FxFactory platform to deliver full multi-application support.
Zoetrope FLOW is a singular plugin with the following parameters:
Manual or Automatic Animation
The animation section controls the movement of individual points in the system. in Auto mode, you control the LFO type and speed (built in behaviors) In manual mode, you get a slider that is a seamless loop of change from 0. to 1.0 of floating point accuracy, for each axis.
Sliders for resolution, growth, complexity & scale affect the way the form curves and distorts. These parameters also interact and affect the way that the animation parameters will occur. All the parameters are keyframeable or controllable by behaviors.
You can render FOLD with 3 different rasterizations. Direct mode maps the source video direct to the shape. Tiled mode applies a tile effect. Streaked mode uses a motion blur algorithm with alpha transparency for beautiful and subtly blended forms.
Rotation & Translation
FOLD is a 3-dimensional object that can be moved & rotated in space. Parameters are exposed for the X, Y & Z axis for each and are also keyframe enabled.
Available for FCPX, Motion, Premiere Pro, and After Effects.
