The BCC Pin Art 3D filter is a particle based generator style filter that simulates the look of the desk toy where metal (or plastic) pins can be displaced by objects creating a 3D relief.
The filter can use the values of layers in the After Effects composition to define the appearance and arrangement of the particles making up the “Pin Screen” such as:
Like a 3D-capable LED or halftone type of effect, it can be used to achieve a wide range of both 2D and 3D-looking surfaces. Pin Art 3D supports AE lights and camera for simple integration into AE 3D compositions. Features such as sophisticated built-in wipes and an integrated Beat Reactor group allow for creating dynamic animations within the filter, including animations directly influenced by audio layers.
