The Digimation Suite. Free power tools for 3ds Max.


Digimation pioneered the plug-in business for 3ds Max. To date, we’ve released over 50 products and now we’re offering a collection of twelve tried and true favorites to the 3D community for free! The suite comes with all of these products;


Allows any 3ds Max particle system to use any object as a particle object.

Bones Pro

A powerful, easy to use skeletal deformation system. With it you can quickly rig and animate detailed characters.


Texture placement based on the location of a gizmo, instead of an objects sub-material ID. This allows the user to place materials at very specific locations in the scene, and to animate certain effects without having to paint complex animated maps.

Clay Studio

Advanced metaball modeling for 3ds Max.


A collection of procedural, low-resolution mannequins that can be quickly inserted into your 3D scenes to help create crowds. DigiPeople will give your architectural models an understandable visual scale and otherwise populate your scenes.

Fractal Flow

Allows you to warp any image, video, or 3d scene to create water ripple effects, heat distortions, and much more.


Allows you to animate any object or particle system along the surface of another object.


A procedural electric arc generator. Lightning creates true 3D geometry right in your viewports.


Advanced mesh sculpting with full support for pressure sensitive tablets, tessellation and optimization as you sculpt.


Combines flexible particles with a powerful and unique emitter and target system. Build or tear down objects in particles.

Spray Master

Allows users to spray geometry, both 2D and 3D, as particles on or around other objects with an easy-to-use freehand brush or spline-based control.

Tree Factory

Generate a wide variety of trees and ground foliage to add that extra touch of realism to your 3D scenes.

After Effects FCP X Tutorial

Generate a Volumetric Light Effect on Animated Text

In the latest Boris FX podcast, learn how to use Boris Continuum Complete’s Rays Cartoon filter in Apple Final Cut Pro to generate a volumetric lighting effect on an animated text element. The BCC Rays Cartoon filter will also give the text the appearance of being made of neon lights. We’ll complete the effect by using the BCC Light Sweep to add a light sweep across the face of the text element and then we’ll use the BCC Colorize Glow filter to provide a soft glowing look.

If you don’t have Boris Continuum Complete, you can download a free demo here. BCC works in a whole slew of hosts, so check it out, even if you’re not a FCP user.
