Creating complex, seamless composites in After Effects can be a difficult, time-consuming task. With Supercomp, light and atmospheric effects interact with all of your layers and the elements of a scene in a far more natural way than can be modeled with a simple stack of 2D layers. Supercomp enhances the After Effects 2D compositing engine with its own, powerful environment and set of tools, and far less pre-composing than ever before.
Work with 17 GPU-accelerated context-aware tools, such as Light Wrap, Volumetric Fog, Optical Glow, and more. Supercomp’s effects are easily applied, with less time needed to get realistic professional composites. Supercomp’s adjustable presets speed up the compositing process by displaying live previews of how they'll affect your finished composite.
Good compositing requires knowing how to make things look right. With Supercomp, you’ll benefit from decades of our team’s extensive feature film and broadcast experience. Supercomp comes with built-in visual effects tricks and techniques that deliver beautiful, convincing results. Light wraps know they should wrap around every layer — not just one. Heat Blur applied to a fire element gives a realistic blurring and distortion of all layers behind it, without requiring additional effects.
Supercomp is a companion that works seamlessly with and within After Effects, so you can continue to use the effects and workflows you already know. Use Supercomp for the finishing touches — or choose to base your entire workflow around it. No matter how you use it in your work, you’ll never have to leave the comfort of the familiar After Effects timeline to get it done.
