THE 2D PHYSICS ENGINE FOR ADOBE AFTER EFFECTS
This will send you to our partner aescripts + aeplugins.
Unleash your creativity and forget time consuming manual keyframing.
2D layers in AE become rigid bodies in Newton.
Supports masks, text and shape layers.
Handles collision, friction, bounciness, gravity and more.
6 types of body (static, dynamic, kinematic, AEmatic, dormant and dead).
4 types of joints (distance, pivot, piston and spring) that allow you to connect bodies with specific constraints.
Provides clean, efficient and easy to use interface.
Fast preview, fast export to keyframes.
Comprehensive user’s guide with illustrative animations for almost every property.
1. User Interface
Newton 2 provide a robust interface for a better user experience.
Create chain of bodies with the Distance Joint. Elasticity can be added to create soft Distance Joint.
Force bodies to share a common anchor point with the Pivot Joint. Angle limits and motor can be added to the joint.
Impose a translation axis to the bodies with the Piston Joint. Translation limits and motor can be added to the joint.
Create springy force between bodies using the Spring Joint.
3. New Advanced Body Properties
Attract or repulse bodies with the Magnetism system.
Prevent bodies from rotating with the Fixed Rotation property.
Simplify complex shapes (text for instance) with the Use Convex Hull property, and get better performances.
Set a custom per-body gravity with the Gravity Scale property.
4. Many other additions and improvements
What’s new in version 2.1
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

If you purchased Newton1 after 1st Dec 2012 you can upgrade to Newton2 for free
For the release of Newton 2 we have partnered with aescripts + aeplugins. To upgrade (at a discount of course) you will need to create a new account on aescripts.com if you don’t already have one. Please make sure to use the same email address that you used when you purchased Newton 1 when you create your new account on aescripts.com. If you already have an aescripts + aeplugins account then you will see a special notice the next time you login with instructions on how to upgrade. If your email has changed or you require assistance please contact support and we will be happy to help.
For site licenses:
In order to best address our customers of all sizes we have stopped offering site licenses and switched to volume discount pricing. This means you will need to upgrade a defined number of licenses for v2. Since you are a v1 site license owner you are allowed to upgrade an unlimited number of licenses for the special upgrade price but you will only be able to do this once. If you require extra licenses after this upgrade offer you will need to purchase new licenses (volume discounts will apply). If you have any questions about this please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will be happy to help.
