Red Giant Software introduced their brand new product Universe at NAB this year. Universe is a continuously expanding library of plugins for After Effects, Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro X and Motion and is a bold new direction for Red Giant.
Joining the Universe community is free and gives you access to a range of useful free plugins. Becoming a Premium member gives you access to all of the premium plugins, some of which are updated versions of previous Red Giant Effects Suite products such as Holomatrix and Toon It. Red Giant will be adding new tools all the time with an aggressive plan to release updates every 6 weeks.
The plugins are 32-bit and GPU accelerated and include Blurs, Generators, Glows, Noise, Stylise and a range of transitions. I’ve been using them for a while now and have found them really useful and blazing fast. Check out the gallery here.
Red Giant is offering Premium membership with monthly, annual and a $399 lifetime subscription option. Premium members are also eligible for access to early betas, allowing direct input into the features in the new Universe tools. Head on over to Red Giant, join me as a member and give the effects a try!
