Red Giant´s Universe effects and plugin collection has been updated. New in version 3.0 is a kind of plugin browser -- the dashboard provides central access to all included effects, even with shortcuts to frequently and/or recently used plugins. The Dashboard also provides access to presets, which are now provided for each effect or transition, but can also be created according to personal preferences. The Universe Dashboard is integrated within the Adobe Creative Cloud applications as an extension. In other host programs, a modified form of the browser appears.
Also new on board are five more plugins to generate or animate typos:
- Type Cast: animates text properties like color, transparency, size etc.
- Type On: lets text appear bit by bit in the typical computer terminal look
- Screen text: creates scrolling computer code
- Hacker Text: creates "hacker-style" text animations with seemingly encrypted text
- Text Tile: generates random number/character fields for Motion Graphics
