Red Giant Universe Now Available!

What is Red Giant Universe?

Red Giant Universe is a community that gives members access to fast and powerful free tools for editing, filmmaking, visual effects and motion design. Every tool in the Universe library of effects and transitions is GPU-accelerated, both Mac and Windows compatible, and works across multiple host applications including: After Effects, Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro X and Motion. The Universe library of tools is continuously growing—new effects and transitions are added regularly, and existing tools are updated often, based on user feedback.

Universe membership is FREE and comes with 31 free plug-ins that are yours for life! More free tools will be added regularly.

What is a Premium Membership?

We’re trying something new with Universe. While many of the Universe tools are free, there are a lot that are available as a part of Premium membership – paid for via monthly, yearly, or lifetime subscription plans. With premium membership, you get access to more tools and the absolute best Universe has to offer. Most of these are brand new tools and we wanted to offer them to you with the option of paying for them at a low initial fee. However, for those who want to just pay outright, and avoid subscription, we offer a pay-once-only lifetime option.
