Tracode has announced a beta program for Tracode MIR version 2 - a 3D fractal generating, animating and rendering plugin for After Effects that creates animated meshes mesmerizing in various rendering styles.
>> See Also: Trapcode Mir 1.0 for After EffectThis version boasts speed increases of up to 3X faster in some cases. Still under production, Trapcode MIR 2 has some handy new features complete, with a long list that are still to come.
Mir v2 new features DONE:-Optimized rendering - up to 3x faster
-Z Range controls (found in Fractal group) for example to create plateau in landscape, also good to move fractal to "up"-only so amp map only goes "up":
-Memory managment. New pop-up where VRAM can be manually set or memory check turned off completely. Useful with high end cards with >2GB VRAM since Mir's autodection only works with <2GB.
Installing the Mir v2 Beta:-Create a new folder on the Desktop named "Mir 1.0 Backup" (to keep a copy of your old, well-functioning Mir 1.0)
-Drag the current Mir out of the plug-ins folder into the new Mir 1.0 Backup folder. To locate the plug-ins folder where Mir is installed you can search for "Mir_64.aex" on windows and "Mir-64.plugin" on Mac OSX. Sometimes this is directly under the After Effects app and sometimes there is a "MediaCore" folder.
-Unzip the file and place in the plug-ins folder.
-Restart Adobe After Effects
If AE displays a warning on startup saying there are multiple copies of Mir, then you have somehow failed to move the Mir 1.0 plugin out from the plug-ins folder. Try again! It needs to be out of reach for AE's plug-in scan, that is why putting it in a folder on the Desktop is a good idea.
