Trapcode Mir creates quick-rendering 3D shapes that are built on the power of OpenGL, previewing your effect instantly so you can keep on designing. You'll play with a simple polygon mesh that is packed with 3D features, like fractal noise for distortion, texture mapping, repeating geometry, and After Effects light integration. Mir generates smoothly shaded objects or flowing organic elements, abstract landscapes and nebula structures -- all beautifully animated with light and depth. Break the speed barrier in After Effects with motion design that is fast, flexible and fun.
Create flowing surfaces, endless tunnels, and abstract shapes for use in your motion graphics
Design realistic or alien landscapes using Mir's fractal displacement mapping.
3D Camera and Lights
Mir uses After Effects' 3D Camera and Lights so you can fully integrate your Mir surfaces with your motion graphics and VFX shots.
What's New in Trapcode Mir 2:
A 3D story: Polygons, fractals & lights
- Spiral - Mir 2 adds the ability to spiralize the mesh, deforming the surface with spiral rotation.
- Seamless Looping - Trapcode Mir 2 now includes the ability to create seamless, looping fractal*based backgrounds.
- Quads and Triangles - Choose between quad or triangle¬*based polygons for your surfaces.
- Second¬*Pass Wireframe - Add a second¬*pass wireframe on top of your Mir surface. Great for creating grid overlays on terrains and more.
- Z¬*Range - Take control of the displacement by setting minimums and maximums. Great for creating plateaus and craters on your surfaces.
- Fractals - Choose from regular, Multi, SmoothRidge, Multi SmoothRidge for varying displacements of the mesh.
- Performance Enhancements - Mir 2 includes many performance enhancements including up to 3x optimized rendering speeds and improved VRAM management.
The core of Trapcode Mir is simple and powerful: A mesh object that’s made of polygons, shaped by fractal noise, and textured and illuminated in a 3D environment. The polygon geometry and the fractal's organic look combine to create flowing abstract designs and natural-looking elements. Plus Mir is fully integrated into After Effects' comp lights and camera, with features like Specularity and Ambient Occlusion that add shading and reflections. Your result is a beautiful animation formed of light, texture and depth.
Mir lets your creative rhythm flow
Bom, bom, bom. Can you hear that ambient soundtrack? It’s counting the beats as you render, but you're dancing along because Mir moves so fast. Mir is built on OpenGL performance so you can increase polygons and complexity without ever hitting a speed issue, even when working in HD. Keep the beat going as Mir lets you instantly preview your animation for an interactive and responsive workflow. Mir is the DJ that keeps the rhythm flowing.
The next generation of Trapcode design
Go where no Trapcode has gone before. Creator Peder Norrby was inspired to develop Mir as he listened to the design community talk about their need for speed. Mir includes some of your Trapcode favorites -- support for AE lights, texture mapping,fractal fields -- to create the organic geometry that you already love in Trapcode products like Form 2. But Mir gives your design a unique spin with fantastic (and fast) new options, like the Repeater for easy instancing and Draw modes that create a 3D skin. Beam us up!
