The Video Copilot Jet Pack Bundle includes Element 3D V2, Jetstrike, and Flight Kit. If you are looking into taking your Adobe After Effects skills to the next level, and by next level we mean to the skies, then this bundle is just what you are looking for.
Launch some rockets and blow some stuff up!
This new collection goes perfectly with JetStrike, but includes many great tools that are useful for any project! Over 200 Aircraft Sound FX, 25 HDR Sky Maps. Full 360° maps at 4K Resolution with various cloud types and sunsets, High Definition Aerial Explosions Stock Footage, Plus an advanced Heat Distortion Plug-in by Video Copilot. The Flight Kit essentially includes 4 separate products in one – so you get the tools you need.
Creating realistic heat distortion in After Effects can be tricky to control using displacement maps and fractal noise AND that is why we created our own dedicated Heat Distortion plug-in! Check out the video to see it in Action.
High Performance After Effects™ Plug-in for creating Motion Design & Visual FX! Element 3D allows you to import 3D objects created in Cinema 4D and OBJ into Adobe After Effects. From there you can manipulate them using a unique particle array system that can distribute 3D objects into any shape! Element 3D also supports your UV texture coordinates so importing and rebuilding your textures is easier than ever. This only brushes the surface of what Video Copilot Element 3D can create. Try it today and let your imagination come to life.
All Video Copilot model packs have been designed to work with numerous 3D programs from a single product.
Use them with CINEMA 4D, 3ds Max, Maya, Blender and of course, the powerful Element 3D plug-in.

C4D FILE SUPPORT:
Requires Cinema 4D R12 and newer to import inside Element.
RENDER FARM SUPPORT?
It is possible to use Element on a network render farm but we do not reccomend or support it because inconsistencies of GPU rendering. Since Element renders with impressive speed on a single GPU it is ideal to pre-render any 3D elements before pushing to the render farm.
I have a DEDICATED 3D Program why would I need this Plug-in?
Element is designed to be used whenever it will save you time or make your job easier. By working natively inside After Effects, you can make serious changes to your scene like change materials, add lights and even animate the camera without the intense re-rendering of traditional 3D.
Element works at compositing speed, which means you can see the final look of your scene while you make changes with virtually no interruptions.
Whats the difference between Elements RENDERER & RAYTRACING?
Element uses fast Open GL rendering instead of the per-pixel Raytracing found in traditional 3D programs. The main difference with Open GL rendering is that objects do not reflect other objects in your scene. However, Element does use Reflection Mapping to generate the appearance of reflecivity without compromising Speed.
