AtomKraft for After Effects

AtomKraft is a fantastic plugin for After Effects. It provides an alternative to the native Classic 3D and Ray-traced 3D renderers, using a 3D unbiased renderer based on the Renderman-compliant 3Delight application. As such, it is really excellent at previz, making composites, and 3D motion graphics. It supports OBJ, Alembic, and RIB file formats. You can find out more at Jupiter Jazz, the makers of AtomKraft.

I have a set of tutorials about AtomKraft, although I apologize in advance for the poor quality. I will hopefully have a better series on AtomKraft 1.0 shortly.
