3D Invigorator PRO brings big-time 3D motion graphics to your After Effects work. 3D Invigorator PRO renders quickly and can create beautifully sculpted 3D models quickly and easily without extensive training. At ZAXWERKS they believe the key to workflow is familiarity. To that end they've made 3D Invigorator operate as a plug-in for After Effects so you never have to leave your main program.

The tools in 3D Invigorator act like tools you are already familiar with.
The modeling is done as you are drawing the curves so you can see exactly that you are getting as you draw.
The models stay live so if you have to make changes, a quick adjustment to the curves will rebuild the model in 3D without you having to do anything.
The most familiar animation controls are the ones you already know.
3D Invigorator PRO uses the After Effects timeline for all of its animation.
If you know how to set keyframes in After Effects you already know how to animate in 3D Invigorator PRO.
Familiar Lighting and Lens Flares
To help you create lighting that looks and acts real, 3D Invigorator PRO has lighting controls based on real world lights or using After Effects lights. If you know how to use After Effects lights, you already know how to use 3D Invigorator PRO's lighting.
Familiar Surfacing and Text Styles
3D Invigorator PRO comes with over 200 seamless materials that are applied by dragging a thumbnail picture and dropping them directly onto your object.
3D Invigorator PRO's bevel creator is the most advanced custom bevel creator in any 3D program. It will also feel the most familiar to you because it uses regular old Illustrator-style, Bezier curves.
Best of all, no round tripping
With 3D Invigorator PRO round-tripping doesn't exist. As an After Effects plug-in there is no time lost re-rendering, moving files back and forth or fixing mistakes. It is literally the fastest 3D workflow possible because you stay inside of After Effects 100% of the time.
The PRO Version Greatly Enhances What You Can Do
The PRO version gives you the incredible ability to bring 3D models right into After Effects. This is truly a designer's dream because you can mix 2D layers with live 3D elements in the same project.
Set up variables in 3D Text objects and then drive the variables with a text file. This takes versioning to the next level by enabling you to create one animation and then render countless additional animations based on changes in the text file.
The PRO version enables you to draw your own bevels. This enables you to create the fresh new looks you see in today's spots and promos. In addition, Object Warping will let you create state of the art effects!
