Satya Meka (@gutsblow) has a new tutorial for his plug-in Plexus, his 3D particle system plug-in for After Effects. A plexus (as in solar plexus) is a tangled network structure in biology. The plug-in creates something similar with polygon meshes without surfaces in 2D or 3D in After Effects. Plexus works with AE lights and paths with custom and shaded sprites, and OBJ 3D objects can be imported and rendered as plexus wireframes.
AE Scripts has a demo version of the new plug-in, and at least 6 more tutorial videos. Below is a preview of Satya’s latest tutorial and the intro to basic concepts. Note also the MamoWorld tutorial Time(line) for Plexus that uses the ExpressionTimeline script with Plexus to create a logo animation.
