Here is a list of some of some of my favorite software from Red Giant and how I use it in my work.
Trapcode Suite 11
It’s everything Trapcode. If you work in After Effects, it’s the first plugin set you should get. The developer is also a pinball fan and a great guy. So, there is that, too.

If you can’t get entire Trapcode Suite, then get this one. It’s my most used Trapcode Plugin. I used it for the snow from yesterday’s tutorial and used in many of my After Effects presets.

Vintage Film for Looks
I made this one. It’s a collection of Vintage Film looks for use with AE,Photoshop and more. I’m pretty proud of it. (Requires Red Giant’s Looks)

Of course I would be honored if you got my Vintage Film for looks, but there is also a Guru suite that includes my pack and packs from artists like Nando Costa, Harry Frank, and Stu Maschwitz that you should take a look at. It includes hundreds of templates, presets, and scenes from real motion designers and artists.
