      Red Giant Universe 2.0: motion graphics, stylized

      June 30, 2016, 1:31 pm
      Red Giant Universe had been a consistently-updated mix of free and subscription effects for Adobe After Effect, Premiere Pro, and related apps like Hitfilm Pro, Final Cut Pro X, and DaVinci Resolve. With the new Universe 2.0, Red Giant removed the less popular plug-ins – and will no longer offer free tools!
