|Effect Builder AE introduced|
Effect Builder AE is a new development kit for creating Adobe After Effects™ plug-ins from Quartz Compositions on MacOS X.
Quartz Composer, delivered freely by Apple, is a graphics development environment that allows users to build complex and hardware accelerated image effects. With Effect Builder AE users can transform Quartz Compositions to After Effects plug-ins and thus take advantage from the rich features and hardware acceleration of Quartz Compositions through OpenGL.
Effect Builder AE provides a simple and intuitive user interface that lets users easily setup plug-ins from Quartz Compositions without programming knowledge. All basic parameter types of After Effects are supported, and beyond this, plug-ins built with Effect Builder AE can load user selected external images.
