    We have a really cool new plug-in for you. It’s called 3D Flag and works inside of After Effects and Premier. Below is the press release. You can check it out on the Zaxwerks website and download a movie showing it in action.

    This plug-in got quite a lot of attention at NAB this year. Not only because it looks so cool, but also because it’s only $99. Check it out.



    For Immediate Release – Zaxwerks brings Grace and Majesty to After Effects and Premier

    Zaxwerks, creator of the award-winning 3D Invigorator software, has today released a new plug-in called 3D Flag. The 3D Flag software can take any picture or movie and turn it into a realistic flag animation. The plug-in works inside of Adobe After Effects and Premier Pro.

    Grace and Majesty
    Animating 3D flags has always been a closely guarded secret of the 3D animation elite. Traditionally this type of effect has been terribly time consuming and requires ultra-specialized skills. Zaxwerks has broken new ground in making this effect available to the mid-level user. Now anyone who can operate After Effects or Premier can add graceful and majestic flags to their work.

    Easy to use
    One click turns an image into a flag. Another click adds a flag pole to hang the flag from. One more click creates a wind pattern of the user’s choice. Within less than a minute the user has turned a single image into a compelling flag animation.

    Flags can be created out of any logo, picture or video clip. Create flags for news or sports shows, corporate presentations, special events and weddings.

    Key Highlights of the 3D Flag software include:
    – Real-Time feedback.
    A preview window shows the user the final animation in real-time without the need to stop and render previews.

    – Creates Banners, Pennants & Ribbons.
    Any shaped flag can be made including shapes with holes.

    – Integrates with the user’s standard workflow.
    Since it works as a plug-in there is no need to stop and switch programs. The flag appears in the main window so changes can be made at any time in a project.

    – Multiple versions are easy.
    A single click will change the image on the flag so once the animation is created each additional version is a click away.

    The 3D Flag software is shipping now. It is currently available as a plug-in for Adobe After Effects 6.0 and 6.5 and Adobe Premier Pro 1.5. It can be purchased directly from Zaxwerks by phone, (1-626-309-9102) or from the Zaxwerks website, (

    $99 per seat.
