RE:Flex 5.1 for After Effects Now Available

Posted 16 days ago by Simon Day - Posted in General

RE:Vision have brought out a small update for the morphing and warping tool conveniently named as RE:Flex.

See RE:Flex put to good use in this commerical!

What's new in version 5.1?

The Temporal Smooth mode has been altered to give greater temporally coherent results. Previous projects with this feature turned on will have different results with this version (but hopefully much more acceptable results).

The update is free for current RE:Flex 5 for After Effects users.
