Thanks for this tutorial. I had been wondering and attempting to do this since I first saw it on the Genarts page. You made that task a whole lot easier.

Awesome

Todd,

Thanks a ton for this Sapphire tutorial - it's going to prove extremely helpful in the future. One question though: is there a reason copying and pasting the tracking data keyframes to the effect elements is preferred (or necessary) rather than using an expression to link them?

Thanks again,

Ken
Great tut

Todd,
Great display of how to use multiple Sapphire effects to create something you wouldn't expect.
Even gave me - a non-AE user - loads of ideas.
Thanks for posting!

Peter Wiggins looks at Sapphire Plug-ins from GenArts

Peter Wiggins takes a thorough look at the new Sapphire plug-ins from GenArts. One thing is for sure, you will have seen many examples in film and television already as Sapphire is used on a daily basis by large film effects and post production houses. Many compositors and editors swear by them, myself included! I've been using Sapphire with Shake for over a year now, and every job has used at least one plug-in. Now, they're available for Final Cut Pro, Combustion and After Effects.
