Trapcode Horizon released (After Effects Plugin)

Trapcode Horizon

Trapcode Horizon is a camera-aware color gradient and image mapping tool. It is a fairly straightforward utility plug-in. It is meant to be used on the bottom layer in a 3D comp. It generates a background that corresponds to the camera’s viewing direction.

To get yourself started with the Trapcode Horizon Tutorial

Trapcode Horizon can be used for example when a 3D camera move leaves the viewer confused; Trapcode Horizon can help generating a background that corresponds to the camera move and thus help the viewer understand what is actually going on. Or it can be used just for fun!

Trapcode Horizon is a great companion to the other 3D plugs from Trapcode, such as Particular and Form etc.

Supported Hosts: Adobe After Effects 7.0 and higher (Mac OSX/Windows)

  1. I would recommend you to start working with already made images to get used to it.
    A great book (I own the German version) is this one:

    In this book Christian Bloch describes how to produce HDRI Images.

    The book covers:

    * Understanding the foundation of HDRI
    * Tools for a High Dynamic Range Workflow
    * How to capture HDR images: now and tomorrow
    * Tone mapping for creating superior prints
    * Image processing and compositing
    * All 4 ways to shoot panoramic HDRIs
    * Image based lighting and CG rendering
    * World premiere of the Smart Dynamic Range toolkit
    * Creative uses and unconventional applications

  2. I’m glad I know what im looking for. It gets quite boring staring at this screen all day but, I found your view very informative. Might I ask what other Discreet products you use or plan to use?
