Red Giant said today that it’s making Red Giant Complete, an “all-access” subscription to its motion graphics and VFX toolset, available to users.
The package, which includes Trapcode Suite, Magic Bullet Suite, Universe, VFX Suite and Shooter Suite, is now available for $599/year, with students and teachers eligible for a special price of $299/year. Red Giant said the same software can still be purchased on a perpetual license for $3,495 — a price that doesn’t include upgrades. First-year discounts are available to users with current Red Giant product suite licenses or active Red Giant Universe subscriptions.
Red Giant is so high on the new deal it had its favorite filmmaker, Seth Worley, make a short to explain it.
“Red Giant Complete has been available to our volume customers for years, with thousands of licenses in use at broadcast networks, film studios and universities,” said Red Giant CEO Chad Bechert in a prepared statement. “And now, due to popular demand, we’re really excited to offer subscription licensing to all of our customers. At the same time, nothing has changed. While we think Red Giant Complete is an incredible deal, we know some customers are more comfortable buying software the traditional way. We want to make sure our community of talented artists has what it needs, so we’re continuing to offer perpetual licenses at their usual prices.”
All of Red Giant’s tools are compatible with Adobe After Effects on both Mac and Windows, and some work with additional host applications. Red Giant hosts a compatibility matrix to show which software plays nice with your own favored tools.
