After Effects Plug-ins Tutorial

Create a Tunnel with Trapcode Mir

This is an oldie but a useful tutorial from Aharon Rabinowitz at Red Giant. He explains how to shut the mesh to create a seamless wormhole in Trapcode Mir. Use it on your next time travel journey!

About Trapcode MIR

Trapcode MIR Box
Trapcode MIR

3D Surfaces, Terrains, and Wireframes in After Effects

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.
