After FX Plug-Ins and Scripts

After FX Plug-Ins and Scripts

  If you use After FX then you're familiar with Red Giant.  Red Giant distributes some of the most popular plug-ins for After FX and Premier - such as Shine, Particular and Magic Bullet Looks (to name a few).  I've been using Red Giant plug-ins for years and recently I subscribed to their Universe 2 set of effects.  I've gotten a lot of mileage out of the generators, motion graphics effects, stylize effects and the various blurs and glows.  Universe 2 is a little different in that it's taken on the increasingly popular subscription model.  For $99 a year you get access to the Universe 2 plug-in suite.  They update the plug-ins throughout the year and new and updated plug-ins will become available as they are released.  Of course the trick with subscriptions is you have to justify re-upping every year.  Because if you don't, they will vanish from your effects menu.  So the questions is - is Universe 2 worth it?  Is it worth re-upping every year?  In the video I will go over a number of my favorite plug-ins that come with the suite and make an argue that Universe 2 is indeed worth the yearly 'Benjamin'.
