Nodes 2 offers unprecedented power to create connected motion graphics and abstract particle universes. Nodes is used by leading artists to create high-end screen graphics in motion pictures like The Avengers, Planet of the Apes and Ender’s game.
Nodes supports Final Cut Pro X, After Effects, Motion and Premiere Pro on Mac OSX.
Start out with primitives, 3D models or footage to create a point cloud. Then populate the animation with text and manage connections dynamically.
Spread the nodes in infinite space and create universes with fifty- thousand glowing particles.
Apply 3D effects such as oscillation, noise, coordinate projection or morphing to create organic animations of the elements.
Define relationships between nodes with several modes and options or script specific links. Use the new distance algorithms to animate dynamic connections. Render wireframes, growing lines, curved lines with oscillating tangents or draw an abstract line painting.
Import OBJ 3D models and sequences created with popular 3D software. Add nodes and text to the vertices, render wireframes from faces, and play with animated meshes. The possibilities are endless.

Generate custom point clouds from your videos and images. Use luminance to affect the position or node size.
Assemble diagrams and complex screen graphics with global control over the content. The procedural geometry primitives let you easily setup and animate the layout of thousand of connected nodes, texts and lines.
Nodes 2 natively supports the After Effects Camera. This allows for seamless integration with other industry standard plugins also compatible with the 3D environment offered by AE. This feature enables clever methods of layering to quickly create sophisticated 3D compositions with multiple instances of Nodes.
Fluidly play with five thousand real time layers of text thanks to the new accelerated fonts.
The new auto-highlight function is super simple to use. Set a few parameters for the roll-out, hit play and you get an instant carrousel effect that cycles through your text or images.
Projection offers a new kind of experimentation. Different modes let you progressively blend the position of nodes from cartesian to polar, cylindrical or spherical coordinates and create amazing structures.
Start from scratch creating your own crisp compositions or use the provided presets. Nodes comes with hundreds of presets, so you can hit the ground running.
