Trapcode Horizon: Key Features
Gradient and Image Map Modes Choose from gradient or image map modes in the plug-in, each offering a unique way to provide interesting backgrounds. Gradient mode offers both point and line generation. Point mode generates smoothly blended color regions from up to 8 points on the virtual sphere, while line mode creates converging lines of colors that are perfect for generating a sky gradient. 3D Camera Integration Horizon ties automatically into the After Effects 3D camera, so that the background image is always correctly drawn from the active cameraâ€™s field of view. The automatic camera motion means that other 3D effects like Trapcode Particular and Form will move correctly with background and provide the viewer with a much-needed orientation in 3D space. Visit
