Review: Red Giant Trapcode Suite 13

Steve Taylor, Senior Creative Director at Digital Spatula, has written a review of Red Giant’s Trapcode Suite, for Videomaker.com.

Trapcode Suite is a set of 11 tools for 3D motion graphics and visual effects plug-ins for Adobe After Effects. The Suite includes Trapcode Particular 2.5, Trapcode Mir 2, Trapcode Shine 2, the all-new Trapcode Tao, Trapcode Sound Keys, Trapcode Starglow, Trapcode Form, Trapcode Lux, Trapcode 3D Stroke, Trapcode Horizon and Trapcode Echospace.

Here's an excerpt from Steve's review on Videomaker.com:

With updates to the user experience, new unique features, enhanced realistic effects like reflectance and shadowing, and the introduction of Tao, After Effects users have more reason than ever to add or update this collection of awesome tools. Every serious motion graphics or visual effects artist must have particle generation capabilities and Trapcode Suite 13 provides the broadest set of powerful but easy to use creative effects.


  • Industry-standard particle generation tools
  • New, easy to use features for customizing effects
  • Some plug-ins GPU enabled for fast rendering
  • New effects for creating unique motion graphics


  • Not every tool is updated with new features
