Plugin-in effects for After Effects
on Jul 6, 2010 at 2:02:33 am

I am going to experiment with different effects in After Effects
and I am in need for all kind of good plug- ins for After Effects,

I need some good color correction or color tweaking plug-in, and
a good plug-in for making the images look dirty or distorted in different kind of ways.

Any recommendations?

Thank you.

Color Finesse is an excellent color correction tool that comes for free with AE. Also AE comes with tons of other good tools to which Todd linked. There are some third party plugin such as Magic Bullet Looks and Magic Bullet Colorista, but they don't really do anything you can't already do in AE. They just make it a lot easier.

AE comes with some presets (like "Bad TV") that distort your footage using the included effects. Plus you can mix together tons of different effects with AE depending on what look you're after. Twitch is a third-party plug-in that is used all over the place these days.

[Leo Lagerwall] "Maybe a bit more artistic style plug in that really changes the look of images in different kinds of ways?"

I hate to sound like a lawyer but with a vague explanation like that, all I can say is, "Tell me what you want to do, and I'll tell if you can do it."

Tell you what: since you're exploring the world of third-party plugins, I think you ought to make a visit to the Red Giant Software web site. They've got probably the most comprehensive selection of plugins for AE. Check 'em out. See what they do. Check out the tutorials and demos. See how plugin makers bundle plugins. See if you can afford them.
