Red Giant Trapcode Tao allows you to create complex motion graphics with animated extrusions, spheres, and N-gons; create geometric shapes, ribbons, and more. Tao quickly generates procedural 3D geometries using built-in auto paths, mask shapes, and the motion from After Effects 3D lights. Tao uses After Effects 3D cameras and lights, so you can fully integrate your Tao geometries and paths with your motion graphics and VFX shots. Tao runs on the GPU, allowing for fast-rendering and preview.
