Otprilike ovo su plugini za koje mislim da su neophodni

 

trapcode

http://www.trapcode.com/

dobar set plugina

shine - je dobar za ono hollywood isijavanje texta, simulira nesto kao volume light

3d stroke - veoma zanimljiv plugin koji iscrtava neki stroke koji kasnije moze da se benduje tako da izgleda kao da je 3d + po celoj putanji daje razlicitu sirinu linije sto deluje kao neki animirani loft iz maxa. Apsolutno je nemoguce reprodukovati ovu stvar u samom ae bez ovog plug*a

 

 

zaxwerks - http://www.zaxwerks.com/2004/AEInvig_PRO_Hilights.html

plugin uz pomoc kojeg se moze praviti 3d text u stilu NBA spica i superamerickih slicnih stvari

 

 

ReelSmart Twixtor

must have plugin sto se tice usporavanja i ubrzavanja, kao i fejkovanog motion blura

 

 

 

evo jos jedne liste plugina - http://toolfarm.com/pluginfinder/index.php?PluginsList

Trapcode... daa...

iako, meni njihov omiljeni plugin jeste PARTICULAR.

http://www.trapcode.com/products_particular.html

solidan i brz particle sistem, sa dosta dobrih preseta. lako je razumeti rad sa njim, tako da se provali brzo.

 

 

moj omiljeni set plugina za after jeste Genarts SAPPHIRE. listu efekata mozete naci ovde:

http://www.genarts.com/sapphire-ae.html

Sapphire je karakteristican jer su svi efekti koji su u njemu, a nalaze se i u default after effectsu - brzi i do nekoliko puta. Blur je brzhi, Glow je 10x brzi, itd. pored glow-a (ima jedno 10 vrsta glowa) i blura, koristim i njihov hue/saturation jer su svi parametri "animabilni" za razliku od native AE hue/saturationa. ima dobar set TIME efekata kao i sijaset raznih generatora ii.. ma.. A MUST sto bi rekli.

 

naravno, za magic bullet svi znaju, al ajd da ga pomenem.

http://www.redgiantsoftware.com/magbulsuit.html

kolor korekcija, ukoliko zelite da svoj DV snimak zbudzite da lici makar na nesto, uz jedan od najboljih deinterlace-a. CC se dosta sporo rachuna ali vredi... tu je i letterboxer na klik, a nova verzija donosi i set novih plugina koje jos nisam testirao...

Color Finesse

Obratite paznju na razlicite mogucnosti CC-a... HLS,RGB,CMY, YCbCr...

I svaki od tih mogucnosti ima zasebno: Highlights, Midtones, Shadows.... Kao i master...

Pored toga postoji i sekundarna kolor korekcija... tj. mogucnost visestruke sekundarne kolor korekcije... I jos gomilu sitnica koje ostavljam da sami pronadjete... :)

Ono sto sam se uvek pitao kada sam video kolor korektor u Digital Fusionu... Sto tako nesto nema u Afx-u...? Sada ima... :)

Kada se otvori Kolor finesse... izlazi kao stand alone aplikacija preko celog ekrana.... Kao totalno novi program... Sto otklanja nedostatke afterovog effects prozora...

Color Finesse Feature Highlights

 

Uses 32-bit floating-point color space for incredible resolution and latitude.

User configurable control over shadows, midtones, and highlights, as well as overall correction.

Performs corrections in HSL, RGB, CMY, and YCbCr color spaces.

Automatic color matching and black, white, and gray balance.

Custom correction curves.

Six channel secondary color correction for selecting and correcting individual color vectors.

Reference images and split-screen wipe facilitate accurate color grading and matching.

Smart chroma and luma limiting ensures that even extreme color changes stay within "legal" limits without harsh clipping.

Waveform monitor, vectorscope, histogram, and correction curve displays give full visibility into the correction process.

Resolution independent to work with NTSC, PAL, HDTV, film, and web data.

Fully optimized for multiple processors and AltiVec (Velocity Engine) on the Macintosh and SSE/SSE2 on Intel processors.

Macintosh version interfaces to Echo Fire for video previews of all correction operations.

Includes User's Guide in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format.

 

 

 

 

Resolution Independence

 

Color Finesse is entirely resolution-independent, letting you correct NTSC, PAL, HD, film, or web projects.

 

Flexible Controls

 

Control the gain, gamma, pedestal, hue and saturation of your images. Work in HSL, RGB, CMY, or YCbCr color spaces. Control the overall image, or work with individual color channels. Flexibility is the key to getting just the look you want, and flexibility is what Color Finesse offers with its myriad controls and tools.

 

Individually adjustable color channel curves let you define exactly how color levels will be processed. Levels control determine input and output black, white, and gray points.

 

Secondary Color Correction

 

Want to change the color of a scarf or punch up a bland gray sky? Color Finesse's six-channel secondary color corrector allows you to isolate up to six separate colors which can be adjusted for hue, saturation, and hue offset. Each of the six channels defines a color range based on up to four color samples with settable luma and chroma tolerance, and a range softness control, allowing you to easily isolate colors without harsh edges.

• Overview

 

 

 

 

Automated Color Matching

 

Need to match the color in one frame to a color in another frame? Color Finesse provides single-button color matching to provide natural-looking color matches without fiddling.

 

Smart Color Limiting and Soft-Clip

 

Color Finesse's 32-bit floating-point color space allows you to make radical changes in color and luma levels without clipping, but before final output you'll need to bring things back into range. Color Finesse provides accurate luma soft-clipping, as well as color limiting to meet NTSC and PAL broadcast standards.

 

High-Performance Correction

 

Color correction is important, but no one has all day to wait for it. That's why Color Finesse is optimized for use on multi-processor systems, and takes full advantage of the PowerPC AltiVec (Velocity Engine) instructions on Macintosh G4 and G5 systems, and the SSE/SSE2 instructions on Intel Pentium 4 systems.

 

Even though Color Finesse is dealing with 32-bit floating-point color channels, it outperforms many 8-bit integer software color correction tools.

 

In order to achieve this performance, Color Finesse requires a PowerPC G4 or G5 based Macintosh, or an Intel Pentium III or later Windows system.

 

Telecine Suite Tools

 

Color Finesse also provides the monitoring tools you would expect to find in a telecine suite, including waveform monitor, vectorscope, histograms, and correction curve displays. Displays are available individually or in a convenient combination display.

Preview and Reference Options

 

While making your color corrections, Color Finesse previews your results with options for split-screen wipes to easily compare before-and-after images. The split can be done at any angle to make it easy to compare the part of the image that matters to you.

 

A reference gallery of images make it easy to compare frames from different scenes to accomplish color matching.

 

Previews can be directed to a second computer monitor for full size previews.

 

When combined with our Echo Fire realtime video previewing software on the Macintosh, Color Finesse will show video previews on your NTSC/PAL monitor via a FireWire or other video output device, including AJA Kona, Blackmagic Design, Media 100, and CineWave cards.

GridIron Nucleo....

Obratite paznju na sledeci plugin... Svi koji imate dual procesor/dual core masine... Ovaj plugin vam pomaze da iskoristite sve procesorske resurse na masini...

Odavno je poznat nedostatak aftera da radi sa vise procesora...

Cole i ja smo ga testirali i dao nam je zaista dobre rezultate...

Plugin je stvarno jako koristan...Preview i render ubrzava znatno, a ubrzanje varira od projekta do projekta....Iako je gradjen za multiprocesorske i dual-core masine, poboljsanje se vidi i na hyperthreading masinama... Funkcionise otprilike tako sto dize dodatne render procese koji koriste deo procesorske snage koji after ne moze da koristi... Ponekad render ide i preko 50% brze...
