    Red Giant Universe 3.0 is Here

    January 29, 2019, 12:26 pm
    Universe 3.0 boasts a powerful new Dashboard that makes it simple to explore and apply effects and presets in Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects; plus five new text generation effects, presets for every tool, and the option to save your own presets

    Portland, OR - January 29, 2019 - Red Giant today announced Universe 3.0, a major update to its video effects and transitions plugins for motion graphics artists and editors. With this update, users can enjoy an enhanced user experience thanks to the brand new Universe Dashboard, a dockable control board for Adobe® Premiere Pro® and Adobe® After Effects® that makes it simple to add effects and presets. Five new, customizable text generation effects give users even more ways to add a unique flair or specific look to their work. Red Giant Universe 3.0 features over 75 tools supported across 8 host-applications.

    New Universe Dashboard Keeps Tools At the Ready 
    In Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects, the dockable Universe Dashboard keeps tools at users’ fingertips, making it simple to explore and apply Universe’s entire library of effects and presets. Users can now save effects as favorites and easily find recently used effects and transitions - a top request from Universe users. A modified version of the Dashboard is also available for other applications outside of Adobe Creative Cloud, and is a convenient and easy way to explore the effects and presets in the Universe library.

    Five All-New Text Generation Effects 
    Red Giant Universe 3.0 now includes five new customizable text effects including a multitude of presets to help users get started: 
    Type Cast: Easily animate text properties like color, opacity, size, position and rotation - by the word or character. Get started with Type Cast.
    Type On: Quickly create computer terminal-style type reveals. Includes tons of options for customization and randomization. 
    Screen Text: Fill your screen with scrolling code to create the look of an old-school or modern computer terminal. 
    Hacker Text: Easily create computer hacker-style scrambled text animations. Simulate encrypting or decrypting text with many options for randomization and look. 
    Text Tile: Generate multiple columns full of random data for use in motion graphics and computer terminal effects. Displayed information can be static or animated. 

    Presets 
    In Red Giant Universe 3.0, every tool comes with presets that can be explored via the new Dashboard. In addition, there is now a “Save Preset” button for every Universe effect that lets users save presets to the Dashboard (Adobe Creative Cloud apps) or the preset browser (non-Adobe Creative Cloud apps), depending on which application is being used. 

    Universe 3.0 Pricing and Availability 
    Full: $199 annual; $30 monthly
    Academic: $99 annual
