New Video Copilot Element 3D AE Plug-In
Andrew Kramer and his team at Video Copilot have just launched a new plugin for After Effects. ELEMENT 3D is described as a "3D object based particle array system." Essentially, this plugin gives you the ability to create 3D objects directly inside of After Effects, at a fraction of the time and cost of more expensive applications like Cinema 4D, 3DS Max, etc.
There's a catch though, particularly for stock producers. Unlike Optical Flares, this plugin's license agreement does NOT allow the use of any pre-rendered material in your templates. Buyers would have to purchase the plugin in order to customize the project. Additionally, stock video producers would not be able to use the plug-in to create any Stock Video to sell either.
It is an interesting and different way to license a plug-in. Feel free to chime in on your thoughts or questions!
