Trapcode 3D Stroke
Using a proprietary rendering engine, Trapcode 3D Stroke can play a significant role in the making of HD motion graphics, being perfectly suited for logos and text segments.
Bundling a very rich collection of preset SVG shapes, Trapcode 3D Stroke is able to dynamically animate objects, which can be viewed and analyzed from any angle using the embedded 3D composition camera.
Trapcode 3D Stroke is brought inside an installer that is easy to deploy and doesn’t require any manual intervention besides the press of a few ‘Next’ buttons.
The package makes all the necessary accommodations, thereby the plugin will automatically become available inside After Effects or Premiere Pro soon after deployment.
The main purpose of Trapcode 3D Stroke is to employ 3D effects on objects, using masks and SVG presets in order to render the strokes using the built-in dedicated engine. The resulting shapes are 3D models that can be easily rotated in space and transformed into realistic animations if spiced with motion blur.
All of these are made available in the plugin’s control panel, from where you can customize parameters such as shape, scale related settings, color, thickness, start and end point, offset, loop, taper and opacity to name just a few.
Overall, Trapcode 3D Stroke seems to be a good solution for animating objects and transposing them in a 3D view, with several effects to enrich the look and feel of the shapes. It’s easy to deploy and offers a competitive array of features.
