Trapcode Experiments:
Mir Fractal City
Dan Sollis: Jan 31, 2013

Trapcode Mir is a pretty cool plugin - and a lot of fun to play with. I find it works rather nicely in conjunction with After Effects built-in fractal noise generator.

Being based on OpenGL, I think some of the render glitches in there (the black line on the mountains) are due to the weedy GPU I have in my old Mac Pro. Be interested to see how much faster it is on the new iMacs.

You can download the project file here.

Created in After Effects CS6. Plugins used: Trapcode Mir, Particular, Form & Horizon. Red Giant Magic Bullet Looks. Video Copilot Optical Flares.

Edited in Apple Final Cut Pro X
