Hi, this is a test with newton in after effects inspired from the piston example

2D Physics Test_Render Solid

Here at Render Solid we got our hands on a 2D physics generator for After Effects. These are a few of the results after a few of our tests. It was a lot of fun tweaking the gravity, magnetism, and shape interaction and seeing the results. We had a lot of inspiration from “Angry Birds”.

Newton 2.1 update

We are happy to announce that we’ve updated Newton to version 2.1!

What’s new?

  • Settings are not tight to a composition anymore! We added a Load Settings dialog that allows you to choose between layerID (AE internal identifier, comp specific), layer index or layer name, when importing settings file.  In previous versions only layerID was used.
  • Randomizer: Allows you to randomize the value of mostly any settings in Newton.
  • Copy/Paste body settings
  • Copy/Paste joint settings
  • Loads of bug fixes
  • FREE

The  complete list of change can be found on Newton2’s product page on aescripts “version history”.

Faking Physics in Newton and Element 3D

By Adrian Jensen

In this tutorial I will be going over the steps of setting up a 2d physics simulation in Motion Boutique’s Newton, and then tying 3D models to it using Element 3d. Then I’ll go over how to tweek the keyframes to make the physics appear to be more 3D. I’ll share some tips for animating a 3D camera. Finally I’ll go over making the shots looks good. I’ll go through two examples.
