FreeForm 3D Mesh Warp
adds a third dimension to what you already do with After Effects’ built-in Mesh Warp tool. Select how many rows and columns you divide the image into, then manipulate the control tangents to create cylinders, curves, ribbons, folding cards, an infinite amount of three dimensional shapes.

brings true three dimensional displacement mapping to After Effects. Displacement maps can of course be animated, adding effects like rippling water or blowing flags in full 3D perspective - no faking. Use mesh subdivision to raise and lower the density of your mesh , and anti-aliasing settings to work quickly and then switch to a fully refined result.

After Effects CS5 Plugin Update guide
Boris Continuum Complete 7 AE New Feature Highlights
• Adobe CS5 Support. Boris Continuum Complete 7 AE supports CS5, CS4, and CS3 under Macintosh OS X and 64-bit and 32-bit Windows operating systems.
• BCC 3 Way Color Grade provides a professional color grading process complete with three custom color wheels for pedestal/gamma/gain adjustment. The filter includes built-in masking and keying tools to isolate areas of secondary color correction. Separate color grading can be applied to the inside and outside of a mask, eliminating an extra compositing step.
• BCC Noise Reduction smoothes out video noise using spatial and temporal information derived from the video clip - especially in dark areas of an image
• BCC Lens Blur emulates a popular lens blur or rack defocus effect where out-of-focus highlights of an image clip take on the shape of the lens shutter. The filter includes a gradient map layer to control the depth of focus.
• BCC Lens Shape is a designer effect similar to a rack defocus effect where the shape of the bokeh can be imported from an external layer.
• BCC Lens Transition is a wipe filter that applies a lens blur or rack defocus effect to the specular highlights of outgoing and incoming image clips.
• BCC Beat Reactor automatically generates keyframes based on timeline audio. In addition to being available as a standalone After Effects keyframe generator, the Beat Reactor group is built into many existing BCC filters for easy access.
• BCC Particle Array 3D creates a grid of particles oriented in 3D space. The filter fully supports After Effectsâ€™ camera and lights.
• BCC Pin Art 3D creates a pin board look based on a layer image.
• BCC Warp is a spline-based warp tool that can be used to generate a wide range of distortion effects. Native After Effects masks are used to control the warps.
• BCC Morph is a still image morphing tool designed to produce a smooth morph effect from one image to another similar image. The warps are guided by native After Effects masks.
• BCC Video Morph is a video morphing tool designed to produce a smooth morph effect from one video clip to another similar video clip.
• Other Enhancements include a split-screen preview mode for streamlined workflow and full support for Boris XML Transfer, an Adobe After Effects plug-in designed for seamless transfer of Apple Final Cut Pro program sequences to Adobe After Effects.
"With the CS5 announcement getting closer and closer, several plugin developer / manufacturer announced their upgrade policy to 64bit. Remember, none of your 3rd party plugins will work in AE CS5 due to 64bit.
