3D Invigorator PRO 7 Released!
Since ProAnimator was just given a major upgrade we couldn't leave 3D Invigorator out of the fun.  Version 7 of 3D Invigorator PRO is here and better than ever.  This upgrade is all about lighting, but it's lighting like you've never seen before. You get to create Lighting Rigs with flares, trusses, lighting fixtures, volumetric cones, all animated with familiar After Effects keyframes, and all craftable in ways that would cause major headaches if done in a standard 3D program.  You can even apply these light effects to After Effects' own lights. The best part is that you create all of these amazing looking 3D lights without ever leaving After Effects!
