Render VDB Volumes in After Effects
Joren from The Pixel Lab uses Superluminal Stardust, a particle renderer plugin, to import and render VDB Volumes in After Effects. This is something that could only be done in a 3D program for a long time. The Pixel Lab has released several VDB packages, which I’ll link below the video.
If you haven’t tried Stardust before, today is the day! Click the download link with the product information, below the video. Also, check out some of the VDB volumes that I mentioned earlier.
Now with Volumetric Lighting and expanded GPU acceleration!
Superluminal Stardust is a Modular 3D particle system for After Effects. It has an easy to use node based user interface and ships with a ton of presets to create stunning effects quickly and easily.
