Create immortal particle grids and 3D particle objects with Red Giant Trapcode Form. Build effects visually in the powerful Designer. Dissolve your particle objects in fluids or create complex fractal animations. Create stunning MoGraph with 3D models and animated OBJ sequences. Drive animation with sound and dissolve text and logos. Form uses the After Effects 3D camera and lights, and is GPU-accelerated. Trapcode Form is part of the Red Giant Trapcode Suite.
Immortal Particle Grids and 3D Objects Form particles live forever, giving you precise control over their behavior. Combine multiple forms into one unified 3D space for visually stunning results.
Audio Driven & Organic Effects Create a grid of particles that can be used for organic, flowing effects. Use audio to drive particle animation.
Fluid Dynamics For the first time ever, run realistic fluid simulations, with the new Dynamic Fluids™ physics engine, allowing forms to interact and influence each other for stunning results.
Designer Trapcode Form gives you the ability to build particle grids and particle objects visually, with a powerful designer that makes generating effects creative and intuitive.
Presets Choose from over 150 Trapcode Form presets, designed to give you a head start. Every preset is fully-customizable.
Designer (New) Creating particle grids is easier than ever before in the new Designer. Add adjustable blocks with preset settings and styles for forms, particles and more. Or add complete, customizable particle effects with a single click.The designer gives instant visual feedback, making the building and previewing of effects an intuitive and creative experience.
Fluid Dynamics (New) Create dynamic, swirling effects with the new Dynamic Fluids physics engine, which allows particles to behave as if they are moving through real fluids. Choose from 4 customizable fluidic behaviors.
GPU Accelerated Get fast feedback with Trapcode Form's new GPU Acceleration through OpenGL. Depending on your system and setup, you could see speed boosts of up to 4X or more over previous versions.
Designer Creating particle grids is easier than ever before in the new Designer. Add adjustable blocks with preset settings and styles for emitters, particles and more. Or add complete, customizable particle effects with a single click.The designer gives instant visual feedback, making the building and previewing of effects an intuitive and creative experience.
Multiple Forms For the first time ever, explore endless creative possibilities when you combine multiple Forms (particle grids or OBJ-based systems) in the same 3D space. Create beautiful, complex effects through the interaction of different forms, all within one instance of Form. Forms in multiple form setups can share parameter settings (such as disperse, fractal field and more), and can be saved as a single preset.
Dissolve Text and Logos Trapcode Form makes it easy to dissolve your text and logos like sand blowing away in the wind.
3D Models & Sequences Bring your motion graphics into a new dimension by using 3D models and animated OBJ sequences as particle grids. Choose from Form's library of over 60 OBJs, or easily load your own models using the OBJ Loading Panel directly in After Effects or within the Designer.
Sprites & Polygons Use any image in your composition as a particle by assigning it to a 2D sprite or textured polygon. Form 3 now includes over 270 still and animated sprite images, easily loaded directly within After Effects or in the Designer via the new Sprite Loading Panel.
Audio Reaction Form's particles can react to the audio in your After Effects composition. They can be set up to change size, position, opacity, and many other properties in response to any audio source in your comp.
More Control Get more control over your particle parameters with the new graphing system, updated for Form 3. Animate controls over time for the color, size, opacity, and dispersion of your particles, as well as their fractal and audio reactivity. Draw your curves from scratch, or start with presets and adjust.
3D Camera and Lights Form uses After Effects' 3D Camera and Lights so you can fully integrate your particle Effects with your motion graphics and live-action vfx shots.
150+ Presets (New) Hit the ground running with over 150 fully-customizable Designer presets. Form 4 includes over 20 new Designer presets that show off the new fluid features. Explore the library to find beautifully designed effects for creating fluid animations, backgrounds, motion design elements and more. Save your own presets, and share them across your facility.
Natural Shading The new Shadowlet rendering allows particles to cast shadows onto other particles. Combined with dynamic light falloff support for After Effects lights, your particles and composites look better than ever.

When rendering in GPU mode, the minimum GPU required is an Intel HD 5000 integrated graphics chip. Of course, newer and faster discrete GPU components from AMD and Nvidia will yield faster performance.
Please note, GPU acceleration is unavailable on Mac OS X 10.11.
If your GPU does not meet these specifications, switching to CPU mode will allow for a more stable performance.
