3D Layer for AE, FCP
Digital Anarchy has introduced , a new video effects plugin that creates a three-dimensional layer with visible 'thickness'. It supports After Effects, Combustion, or Final Cut Pro: "Its raytracing render engine creates beautiful reflections, refractions, and renders. Your 3D Layer can be bent, warped, punched through, texture mapped, and of course animated. This plug-in is what you've been waiting for since After Effects added 3D." The plugin is $180 and requires After Effects 5.0 or later. It runs on Mac OS 9/X.
