software for visual effects and motion graphics.
The focus is on creating groundbreaking, robust technology
that is easy to start using for beginners and has many
complex features for advanced users.
Trapcode was started in 2001 by Peder Norrby in the attic of his fathers
house. It still today is a one-man company and this is made possible
by partnering with publisher Red
Giant Software that handles sales,
support and some engineering so that Norrby can focus
on creating new technologies.
Trapcode was never funded by external investors, it grew organically
and Peder Norrby maintains full ownership and control of the company.
Trapcode's products have become industry-standard and are continously
seen on TV and have been used in many feature films, such as Terminator
Sin City, The Spirit, Spider Man 3, Matrix Revolutions, The Day after
Tomorrow, etc, etc. See some amazing work done with Trapcode tools
in the Gallery.
