aescripts + aeplugins to Introduce New Version of Paint & Stick Plugin for Adobe After Effects CC at NAB. A revolutionary paint plugin for animators and VFX compositors

Las Vegas, April 18, 2016 — Visitors to NAB 2016 will have a first-hand look at the new version of the hugely popular Paint & Stick plugin for Adobe® After Effect® CC. aescripts + aeplugins created Paint & Stick to extend the Adobe After Effects CC toolset with a powerful solution for fast raster painting directly in the comp window. Paint & Stick also adds onion skinning, support for custom textured and Adobe® Photoshop® brushes, and introduces the revolutionary, patented “Stick” technology that allows users to paint directly onto 3D renders in their Adobe After Effects CC compositions.

Paint & Stick introduces a completely new Brush Palette with added support for the most popular brush parameters, such as Scattering and Shape and Color Dynamics. It also adds some top feature requests: a fill brush and keyboard shortcuts. In addition, the team has created an all new, faster and simpler Cinema 4D exporter, which treats Paint & Stick passes as multi-pass render passes.

Paint & Stick is available in two versions: an affordable “Paint Only” license which provides access to all the 2D paint features, including Photoshop brushes and onion skinning. The full “Paint & Stick” license adds full access to the patented “Stick” technology not available anywhere else on any platform.

“Paint & Stick provides a fast in-comp painting system for Adobe After Effects, key components of Adobe Creative Cloud,” said Sue Skidmore, head of partner relations for Pro Video at Adobe. “Plug-ins and partner technology integrations are a vital part of the Adobe creative eco-system and extend the toolset for artists and video professionals.”

I don't know what kind of voodoo is at work here but [Paint & Stick] sure seems like magic to my eyes” wrote DJ Waterman in Just Add Motion, a popular motion design web blog.

Paint & Stick is one of my NAB show highlights” said Jeremy Cox, director at Imaginary Forces, a VFX design house with locations in New York and Los Angeles

aescripts + aeplugins will be demoing Paint & Stick along with all the other tools available on at NAB, April 18-21 in Las Vegas, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Plugin Pavillion Booth #SL5707.
