RE:Flex (After Effects Plugin)
RE:Flex is an After Effects plugin designed to help you create image transitions with minimum effort. It takes advantage of the After Effects features and enhances its usage with an intuitive interface.
The main goal of the plugin is to add animations and transition effects for your projects. The package actually includes three plugins that can handle morph, warp and motion morph effects. All of them are using After Effects mask geometries in order to achieve smooth, non-polygonal warp animations.
The Flex Warp allows you to distort the images by specifying the original geometry and the destination shape for each frame. You can specify the shape blend value for each object from your animation.
If you need to morph a part of the movie, the Flex Morph tool starts by creating a set of geometries on the first key image. In order to generate the morph effect you need to relocate the geometries on the other key frames from the animation.
The Motion Morph is a combination of the first two plugins and allows you to morph between two moving sequences. This tool uses two sets of geometries and allows you to animate the frames individually in order to get the desired transition.
Although it is clearly designed for the experienced users, the plugin has the advantage of using the interface of After Effects. This greatly minimizes the learning curve and allows the user to start working with all the features soon after the installation.
The included documentation is extensive, includes step by step instructions and sample videos that illustrate the effects.
RE:Flex is a useful tool for adding warp and morph effects to your videos which can simplify your tasks when dealing with animations in After Effects.
