Free 3D Ink Preset for Trapcode Particular 44 Comments


I have been working on trying to get realistic looking ink drops in water with Trapcode Particular for a while now. I got pretty close and decided to give away the preset over at Red Giant People. It’s a hog to render, but it gives a pretty cool result. Also, if you change the random seed or the wiggle settings, you will get totally different ink drops every time. This one was pretty fun to make. Hope the preset is useful for you.
(Plugin is for AE CS5 and up Only)

  9. Freaking cool results Nick and thanks for sharing! You are the man.

    Sorry to bring Kramer again in this topic (Well he is the man and quiet frankly so are you.), I know that guy from the previous post said some mean things.

    I was actually just wondering if you got to take a look at Element(The new Video Copilot plugin.) and what your thoughts were on it. That plugin looks to be promising particular some real competition. Sorta like Optical flares did(does) Knoll light factory.

    Anyway thanks again for everything bro!

  11. Very cool results. Gonna have to get Trapcode again. I upgraded to CS5.5 from CS3 recently and haven’t bought the compatible versions yet. Thanks! (again)

    Dope. Just got to thinking about AE again myself (besides compositing C4D renders).

    Trapcode sent me an email for Free S#*t Fridays. This was what they were giving away. They said you were one of their favorite gurus. Congratulations!

    Why not just use FumeFX and Krakatoa for this effect? it’s alot easier to do it that way.
