Shade/Shape Features

Give your 2D artwork more punch!

Automatically 3D shades your 2D text, logos and pictures by using the outline and features of the artwork to give it volume and depth.

Enhance your character animation

Animated 2D characters really stand out when Shade/Shape is applied!

Be creative!

Develop cool effects and abstract transitions. Add natural 3D shading effect to your existing image sequences.

Feature Specs

Automatic depth and volume

Shade/Shape automatically generates 3D shading for your 2D graphical and picture elements using our shading-from-shape technology.

Metallic looks

Add depth, shading and metallic luster to your titles and logos!

Glass looks

Create glassy objects by reflecting the background sequence THROUGH your object!

Support for 3D surface normals

Shade/Shape also comes with a plugin, that uses the shading techniques in Shade/Shape to shade the normals produced by a 3D system or even Shade/Shape itself.

Bump and environment mapping

Add further detailing by applying reflection and bump maps.

Fine tune the shaping

Stable and smooth-over-time shading produced for moving imagery. As 2D elements merge and split in a sequence, Shade/Shape automatically merges and splits the geometry in an intuitve fashion!

Additional License Options

We offer several types of licensing options for both our interactive and render-only plug-ins: floating license, node-locked license, and volume license (read the licensing overview for more information). If you are interested in volume licensing or have other questions about these license options, please contact us. All floating licenses require installing our floating license server.

Features, pricing and availability are subject to change without notice.

Render-only license options

Render-only licensing is for use with After Effects' render-only program 'aerender'. Render-only licenses do not work in AE’s Render Queue (for Render Queue rendering you need an interactive license). Note that the Shade/Shape render-only licenses only work on projects written with an interactive license (so you must have at least one standard, floating or node-locked interactive license for the render-only licenses to be valid).
