The Zaxwerks 3D Flag plug-in turns any picture, comp or movie into a realistic flag that responds to wind, gravity and the movement of the pole.

3D Flag AE features:

  • Apply different pictures on the front and back
  • Animations are now loopable
  • Create curtains, roll-down and drop-down animations
  • Control wind speed, wind direction, and gravity
  • Real 3D Flag Poles that look like wood, steel, etc
  • Attach a wide array of caps to the tip of your flag

Flag Looping

Creating Looping with a few clicks. The new Looping controls are intuitive and easily sets up the loop by setting a start and end frame.

Double-sided Flags

You can now assign different images on the front and back of the flag. This is a great way to create a reveal or a useful way to create a transition.

Curtains and Flag Unroll

Change your flag from a vertical flag to a horizontal flag, banner, curtain, frame or background with our new presets. Creating a banner unroll or curtain animation is simply done with adjusting the amount of the roll or folds on the curtain.

Real 3D Flag Poles and End Caps

Work with fully 3D flag poles and end caps. The flag pole and end caps are fully customizable so you can apply any material to get the right look for your project. There are dozens of top and bottom end caps from decorative flag tips to highly detailed stands and wall attachments.

Create Your Own End Caps

Not only does the program come with dozens of end caps, you can even create your own custom end cap. Using ProAnimator/ProModeler or 3D Invigorator PRO your imagination is your limit on what you can do!

Materials Bin

Use dozens of preset materials to quickly set up the flag fabric, flag pole, or the end caps.

Material Editor

With the new Material Editor panel, you can edit any existing material preset, or create your own material from scratch. Use the gradient, noise and grid shaders in combination with Bump, Transparency and Reflectivity to create ultra-realistic materials.


Using the Flatten control, you can turn a flag from a flat card to a waving flag, or have a flag turn into a flat image whenever you like. This is useful for creating transitions where the animation starts as a flat image then turns into a waving flag or vice versa.

Shadow Catcher

Assign an After Effects 3D Layer as the shadow catcher layer. The assigned layer will act as a wall or floor layer that the flag shadow falls on.

Flag Images and Shapes

3D Flag gives you the ability to create flags of almost any color and shape. You can use an image, image sequence, or movie to color the flag. Also, by choosing an image with transparent areas, you can create flags that look like pennants and banners.

Flag Poles

Your flag may or may not have a flagpole. It's your choice. If your flag does have a pole, then you can choose one of the horizontal or vertical poles that come with 3D Flag - or you can install your own.

Pole Animation

Flagpoles do not have to be fixed in space. You may animate them as you would any other 3D object, adjusting the location and rotation. Make your flag wave in the air or simply rotate it into the correct orientation for your scene.

Choosing Different Cloths

There are many different types of cloth materials you can simulate with 3D Flag. You can make your flags loose and rubbery or stiff and inflexible.

Wind and Gravity

3D Flag allows you to set forces like Wind Speed, Wind Direction, and Gravity. You can even animate them to simulate varying wind conditions (the wind is rarely constant, after all) or make the flags look like they're on the moon (which has much less gravity than Earth).

Wind Types

Wind generator will create breezy, gusty or lazy wind conditions.


Built in Slo-Mo lets you create super slo-motion flags without getting blurred pixels or needing to time-remap.
