Quick Overview

Universe 2.2 includes over 75 effects and transitions that run on the GPU and work in Premiere Pro, After Effects, FCPX, Avid Media Composer and MUCH MORE!



Manufacturer Part Number: BUND-UNI-ENTERPRISE

With a focus on transitions, the Universe 2.2 update includes 11 new transitions and updates to 2 existing effects. Also included support for a new host application: Avid Media Composer. With this update, there are now over 75 Red Giant Universe tools, supported across 8 host-applications.


  • Avid Media Composer (v.8.9 and higher)


  • VHS Transition: A transition that mimics the effect that occurs when a VCR has been used to record over pre-existing footage.
  • Retrograde Transition: A transition that uses real scans of 16mm and 8mm film to create an authentic film strip transition.
  • Carousel Transition: A transition that mimics advancing to the next slide in an old slide projector.
  • Flicker Cut: A transition that rapidly cuts between two clips or a solid color, and which can invert the clips or add fades.
  • Camera Shake Transition: A transition that mimics camera shake while it transitions between clips.
  • Channel Surf: A transition that mimics the distortion youd get by changing the channel on a cathode ray tube TV.
  • Channel Blur: A transition that blurs each of the RGB channels separately for a unique chromatic effect.
  • Linear Wipe: A classic linear wipe with the addition of wipe mirroring, as well as an inner/outer stroke with glow on the wipe border.
  • Shape Wipe: A transition that uses an ellipse, rectangle or star shape to move between 2 pieces of footage. Includes control over points, size, stroke and fill.
  • Color Mosaic: A Transition that overlays a variety of colors in a mosaic pattern as it transitions between 2 clips.
  • Clock Wipe: A classic radial wipe transition with feathering and the option for a dual clock wipe.


  • VHS: This update includes new VHS noise samples, VHS style text, timecode and function icons (like play, FF, Rewind), updated presets, and updated defaults for better results upon application.
  • Retrograde: This update includes a small but valuable addition that allows Retrograde to use the Original aspect ratio of your footage for the effect.

As an existing Universe customer, you can download the latest version of Red Giant Link and update to Universe 2.2 in Links Universe panel. Link can also be updated within the app, by using the Check for Updates Now' menu item.


  • AV Club Mimic the lo-fi, noisy text you find on ancient video tapes, old infomercials and local access cable channel shows.
  • Luster Give your text a slick 1980s retro look. Luster applies a metal sheen to text, and includes a refraction-based bevel for a glassy simulated 3D look.
  • Title Motion Create text and shapes and then instantly add dynamic animations that bring them on and off screen. Great for titles, lower thirds, callouts and more.
  • Ecto Create haunting, evolving titles with this glowing fractal-based effect, inspired by Ghostbusters and Stranger Things.
  • Long Shadow Apply a colored, long shadow to text, logo or shape, for both classic and modern motion design.
  • Glo Fi II Give text an ethereal moody look by instantly adding silky smooth, self-animating, fractal-based glow effects to titles. A simple UI make it easy to apply evolving, organic glows.

With a focus on Motion Graphics, some of the new tools and updates include:

  • HUD Components: Instantly create Heads-Up Display elements for use in motion graphics; this tool is packed with tons of presets, element shapes and behaviors for creating a variety of HUD effects.
  • Line: Easily generate a line between two points to simulate flight paths, travel indicators on a map, and a variety of additional motion graphics; draw it as a curving bezier path or a straight line, change the color and style of the line, as well as the start and end points and how they animate over time.
  • Logo Motion: Instantly make logos and text more interesting and dynamic by animating imagery on and off the screen with a hinge style swing, slide on, or a slightly eased in and out pop.'
  • Color Stripe: Create a transition that uses layered blocks of color wiping across the screen to reveal a second layer.

We have also updated the user experience on 22 of our tools, with a new visual preset browser. Now, in Universe 2.0, you can see an animated preview of the effect and apply it by clicking on the image of the preset you want to use.

Along with the new user experience, 18 Red Giant Universe tools have been updated with additional new features, including:

  • Holomatrix II, which now includes new distortion effects based on holographic imagery from films like Star Wars: The Force Awakens' and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay.'
  • Camera Shake, which has been redesigned and enhanced to make it simple to quickly achieve a variety of realistic camera shakes with little to no effort great for enhancing action sequences, and for simulating various camera setups and scenarios such as filming with a car mount, on a boat, and even in an earthquake.
  • Unmult, which now offers additional controls to help users precisely remove black backgrounds from footage and create an alpha channel, a useful tool for compositing footage of fire, smoke, water and more.
