quadrateFX is a tool for Adobe After Effects, specifically designed to generate random patterns
of tiled vector rectangles, simulating the data visualization method also known as treemapping.


 Setting the total number of the generated boxes is as easy as moving a slider.

You can adjust the size randomness % of the generated boxes

 You can also adjust the horizontal versus vertical boxes generation ratio.

There is a handy effect slider to adjust the color selection percentage for each box,
between colors A and B dynamically.

quadrateFX can also generate a text layer for each box. You can select between 12 dynamic text types ranging from
the layer's position X and Y values to random HEX codes. Below are a few examples.

quadrateFX - 3000 boxes

Working with large number of boxes can make After Effects behave quite slow and sluggish. Especially, when working with extruded 3D layers you must be prepared to wait a while for After Effects to interact, render or preview the composition.


The image on the left was created by using quadrateFX and generating over 1.000 rectangles.

 

 

You can use quadrateFX to generate large complicated textures to be used as a displacement map on 3D modelling software.
The image on the right was rendered in 3D Studio MAX and Vray.

Custom effect controls let you control, adjust and animate any aspect of the generated boxes.

    mazeFX

    Create random vector mazes (labyrinths) in After Effects. mazeFX is able to generate a unique solution for each maze and also create the appropriate effect controls, to take full control of the appearance of the maze. Finally, it has the ability to use masks to control the shape of each maze and also can place all of the needed parts in a single shape layer or create separate shape layers for each part of the maze.

    circuitFX

    circuitFX is a tool for After Effects designed to create graphical circuit boards. The circuit pattern is generated randomly with every button press. Apart from the circuit lines and circles, circuitFX also creates, chips, resistors and capacitors. It has the ability to put all of the needed parts in a single shape layer or create separate shape layers for each part of the board. It ideal for technology or sci-fi related projects, animated backgrounds, HUDs etc.
