Trapcode Echospace is out!

Trapcode Echospace is a new plug-in for Adobe After Effects 6.5. It is used to duplicate, manage and animate layers in a convenient manner. It works similair to an echo effect, but instead of creating 2D echoes, it creates new instances of a layer in 3D space - hence the name Echospace.

Trapcode Echospace can be applied to footage, text, solids or even nested compositions. It features a built-in animation delay to create time-rippling effects. It can also add randomness to the positions of layers to spread them out randomly in 3D space.

The price is USD 49. More info here:

Nice job Peder! A worth addition to your fine collection of AE plugins. We will be seeing alot of this being used in commercials in the upcoming months.

So then it's just a animation helper? Too bad, I really had hoped it would offer some true instancing power. Will give it some try.

Well, I would not say it's just an animation helper, it actually creates new instances of the layer. Watch the training movies and you'll see how it works:

The upside of creating actual layers is that they will intersect, cast shadows, react to DOF etc as a normal AE layer does (coz they are normal AE layers!)

Well, yeah, if you consider AE's 3D renderer sufficient, that may be true. I for one don't - it's slow, has serious quality issues and never really works the way one would expect it to work. So I had hoped it was one of your 3D render plugins just like Particular, Lux or even 3D Stroke that introduce their own 3D space and elegantly circumvent aE's own 3D pipeline. I know it would have been hard to implement all the bells and whistles like shadows, but I'm sure many more people would have loved you for it...

I'm sure many people will love him for this as well.

Kudos Peder! I'm sure it's not easy what you do, but very easy for people to take what you do for granted.

Seriously Peder, your work makes people think I know what I'm doing! Great job. I'm gonna use Echospace in my next spot.
