New Yanobox Storm Creates Stunning Procedural 3D in Ae

A new plugin from Yanobox generates and renders evolving 3D surfaces right in After Effects.

Adobe Ae users get a new alternative for creating 3D work in the motion graphics app. “Storm” is a plugin that procedurally generates complex organic forms and evolving 3D surfaces with realtime animation and shading. Storm offers shaders, geometry, and fractal noise all on one plugin, letting users easily make animated 3D shapes and backgrounds.

Storm Can Create Inspiring 3D Visuals.

The plugin has a self-contained rendering engine, which means you don’t have to import 3D models or textures. The new After Effects tool from Yanobox also works on your computer’s GPU for speedy interactions even when working with millions of polygons. The plugin lets you start with parametric primitive shapes and holds several modern 3D features, like falloff effectors, volumetric and directional color, specular and diffuse lighting, fog, and everything else that you would expect working with 3D.

The plugin also ships with over 200 animated presets and templates to help get you started.

Yanobox Storm, like their Nodes 3 plugin, works on the FX Factory platform, which offers ubiquitous support for hosts like Ae, Final Cut, Motion, Premiere Pro, but only on macOS, unfortunately. Visit FxFactory to learn more about Yanobox Storm here.
