Add Your Tags




An After Effects plug-in to produce creative layer collages.

Def: "A pastiche is an artwork that copies the style of another work or that combines various, distinct styles together into one work."





PASTICHE needs two things to do its magic:
A source layer to define the shape of the collage
and a bunch of layers to be placed inside that shape. 


You can choose among various options to customize
the look of the collage.
Possibilities are endless!






PASTICHE provides intuitive controllers to fine tune the position,
scale, rotation and opacity of the collage layers.







If the source layer changes over time,
PASTICHE is able to animate the layers
so they morph from one collage to another.
Again, many animation parameters are available.



PASTICHE is also a great companion
for our physics engine Newton2



Main Features:

Fast and robust
Handles hundreds of layers with ease

Intuitive parameters


Only manipulates Transform of comp layers
Everything produced by Pastiche can be modified by hand a posteriori
