• Sweet mercy, I've been waiting for something like in after effects for a long time.
  • Which difference between loopFlow & RE:Flex?
  • Great tool.
    Is it compatible with Apple Silicon?

    Yes
  • Just an FYI, your how to install documentation for this plugin is erroneously for Potok.

    Thanks, will correct this with next update
  • Which difference between loopFlow & RE:Flex?
    Flex is for morph images between each others, but loopFlow is to animate flows inside single image.

    No, ReFlex can make the same as your plugin: 

    Its possible in ReFlex, but far more involved than loopFlow, and with far less customizability specific to a looping flow capability. I love ReFlex but I'd never use it for this kind of animation. 
  • Will you be posting any tutorials or further info about the functionality? I'm impressed at how much tweakability is possible, but I'd love some more details about each setting to best take advantage of it. thanks 
  • Yeah, and isn't Re:Flex like $500+? I would say if you own Re:Flex then you might make this argument but for everyone else this is a great tool.

    Yes
    Great! Could you post clear installation instructions for Mac here please? Thanks

    Unzip file loopFlow_v#.#.zip.
    From folder macOS copy file loopFlow.plugin to folder:
    /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-ins/7.0

    or use aescript manager app:
    This will automate installation and registration process.

    No, ReFlex can make the same as your plugin: 

    I just didn't know about this possibility. But my plugin allows you to make noise in transitions for unevenness. or a curtain. and flex is only a linear blend (but I can be wrong) I also have a closed mask mode that allows you to twist, for example, galaxies.
  • This is a really fun plugin to play with. Here's my first little experiment with it: https://www.instagram.com/tv/CcqfPKkluup/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
  • Any chance for a CS6 version?

    Sorry no chance, AE SDK is no longer support CS6

  • Looks great. But I am having a problem.
    I downloaded the trial version on a Mac M1 and whenever I apply the effect in AE 2022 it crashes. 
    Does anybody else have this same problem?

    I have tested it on my M1. Some times crashes is happens, but not often. Logs shows that problem in AE 2022. Hope in next AE release it will be solved.

    Well, I just bought it. I love the plugin. I hope these guys keep working on improvements for the Mac Version. Will update you once I have used it properly.
  • Does this plugin require a GPU for render nodes? We have a lot of CPU nodes, just want to confirm this isn't compatible.

    Yes it is GPU accelerated.
  • Hi Dmitriy,

    Well, I'm not off to a good start. I just installed this today, and have not been able to use it which is disappointing. I'm following the tutorial, and every time I select the effect it crashes Ae. I've put my machine specs below. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Error message: After Effect error: crash occurred while invoking effect plug-in "loopFlow"

    Hello Jonathan, 
    Do you have installed previous versions of AE? 
    Can you just try to use it with another AE version.
    Unfortunately this happens on macOS some time. 
    We can't repeat the problem on your side.
  • Hi Dmitriy,

    It looks like I can download older versions of Ae 2022 from Adobe Creative cloud. The only other alternative to download 2021, is to download an Adobe CC 2021 and uninstall 2022 - I just don't want to mess up my other projects made in newer versions. Do you know of a stable 2022 release? I can download a version as far back as ver 18.0. (2021)

    Thanks

  • Woo hoo! 18.4.6 works!

    I'll just use this Ae version for my LoopFlow work for now. :) 

    Thanks Dmitriy. I'll keep an eye out for future LF updates.  
  • Hi Dmitriy,

    Great plugin, very interesting and useful!

    Any chance of an OpenFX port, so it can also be used inside Davinci / Fusion?

    Thanks!
  • does this work on Mac with M1 Pro?
  • Having issues when rendering. When I render the video there is an X but the plug in is registered and the X does not appear on the video while I am working on it. Does this happen to anybody else? Any possible solutions?

    Sure!
  • Trying to use the demo/sample and After Effects keeps crashing whenever I use the effect. Scared to buy the actual plugin for it to not work. Are there any fixes? Iv'e tried multiple times and it's always crashed.

    This happens on Mac? try with another version of AE
  • Although it's entertaining to play around with, this tool definitely requires a thorough introduction to comprehend all the parameters.
