If you are working on Election coverage promos and such, you might like to know that we are soon to release a new version of our 3D Flag plug-in which has tons of new features in it, some of them work especially well for election graphics.
The flags can have different pictures on the front versus the back.
Animations are now loopable. Perfectly, frame-accurately loopable.
Flags can be rolled up then dropped, or arranged as curtains and opened.
You can set the flags in customizable floor stands, wall brackets or lamp posts.
Flag decorations, top caps and stands can be built in other 3D programs, and will import as full 3D geometry inside of AE.
The physics is now more realistic, and it's easier to create several flags that look like they are part of the same wind, but have their own "personality."
You can now flatten out a moving flag so it becomes a flat plane, or start as a flat plane and unflatten it into a moving flag. Useful for transitioning between flags and flat footage.
