Newton After Effects Plug-In

I wanted to talk a little bit about the new physics plugin called Newton. You can download Newton by visiting

The plugin is about $250 USD and it looks pretty cool. I think it might be worth checking out. According to their website, Newton interprets each 2D layer as a rigid body in a real environment. Once simulation is completed, animation is recreated in After Effects with standard keyframes.

Some of the listed features of Newton include:

. robust and fast
. simple and intuitive user interface with OpenGL preview
. gravity, collisions, friction, etc.
. support of masks and shapes
. handles different sorts of bodies: static, dynamic, kinematic, etc.

So what is everyone’s thoughts on this new plugin? Are you planning on trying out the plugin for yourself? I am interested to see some of the things people come up with while using this new plugin.
