Create Generative Motion Graphics with flexibility and speed.

Introduction

A node is a connection-point in a network.
Yanobox Nodes takes its inspiration from data visualizations and networks. Diagrams of nodes and complex networks visualizations are becoming very popular in motion graphics because of their underlying beauty.

Yanobox Nodes offers a unique work-flow to combine text , images and graphics. This plugin provides comprehensive interface to produce a large palette of Motion Graphics including networks, diagrams, particles, points or text clouds, dynamic connections, wireframe, 3D structures and abstract universes.
And above all, it's fast because all the graphics are integrated in a single environment and are accelerated by the GPU.
Build Networks
Explore Universes
Animate Forms
Start out with primitives, 3D models or footage to create a point cloud. Then populate the animation with text and manage connections dynamically.
Spread the nodes in infinite space and create universes with fifty thousand glowing particles.
Apply 3D effects such as oscillation, noise, coordinate projection or morphing to create organic animations of the elements.

Create with Dynamic Primitives
Assemble diagrams and complex screen graphics with global control over the content. The procedural geometry primitives let you easily setup and animate the layout of thousand of connected nodes, texts and lines.

What's new in Nodes 2 ?

Nodes 2 is the result of a complete rewrite of the original plugin from the ground up. Low-level coding has been used in order to provide a rendering engine that can support 50,000 particles and unique font acceleration. The plugin runs in Final Cut Pro X and Premiere Pro, alongside Motion and After Effects.

Point clouds are now created from primitives, footage, and 3D models, allowing for infinite possibilities.
A couple of animation modules let you quickly animate a choice of destination parameters, mixing them with keyframes if needed. The new orientation system for nodes and text adapts the angle of the elements with Fixed, Look at Camera, Look at Center options, and maps nicely around spheres as well. The shapes (node images) are now procedurally generated up to a resolution of 4096 pixels, and include new glowing shapes dedicated to particle creations.
New Connection Algorithms
Define relationships between nodes with several modes and options or script specific links. Use the new distance algorithms to animate dynamic connections. Render wireframes, growing lines, curved lines with oscillating tangents or draw an abstract line painting.

Import 3D Models
Import OBJ 3D models and sequences created with popular 3D software. Add nodes and text to the vertices, render wireframes from faces, and play with animated meshes. The possibilities are endless.

Extract nodes from footage
Generate custom point clouds from your videos and images. Use luminance to affect the position or node size.

Fully Integrated into After Effects
Nodes 2 natively supports the After Effects Camera. This allows for seamless integration with other industry standard plugins also compatible with the 3D environment offered by AE. This feature enables clever methods of layering to quickly create sophisticated 3D compositions with multiple instances of Nodes.

Accelerated Fonts
Carrousel Effect
Coordinates Projection
Fluidly play with five thousand real time layers of text thanks to the new accelerated fonts.
The new auto-highlight function is super simple to use. Set a few parameters for the roll-out, hit play and you get an instant carrousel effect that cycles through your text or images
Projection offers a new kind of experimentation. Different modes let you progressively blend the position of nodes from cartesian to polar, cylindrical or spherical coordinates and create amazing structures.
