Red Giant Universe v1.5 CE Win/MAC Full Direct Download


An expanding collection of free and premium plugins for professional editors and motion graphics artists.

Effects and Transitions

Red Giant Universe includes over 90 high-quality, free and premium effects and transitions that you will use in your work every day: Knoll Light Factory EZ, Holomatrix, Chromatic Glow, Glitch, and much, much more.

Warp Speed with OpenGL

Red Giant Universe runs on the GPU, giving you near-real time feedback and rendering. No matter what host-application you’re in, Universe helps you get your work done faster.

CrumplePop Film Transition

This update includes a transition tool featuring retro film countdown-style film leaders and test strips, scanned from archival film stock. With a dozen authentic transition styles, and flexible controls, this tool is a fantastic companion to Retrograde, our 16MM and 35MM film simulator.

Universe UnMult

Create an alpha channel for any image or video shot on a black background. This tool is extremely useful for compositing footage of fire, smoke, water and more. If you’ve relied on Knoll Unmult in the past, this is an updated, GPU accelerated version.

Glitch & Holomatrix

By request, new features have been added to Glitch and Holomatrix. Glitch now includes controls for changing and randomizing the frame rate of the the glitches. Holomatrix includes a new “Disable Time FX” switch that allows it to interact with other effects on the same layer.

      This program is working fine. If anyone knows anything, please help our friend here :) I’d really appreciate it!

  1. Suli

    But why not extract correctly the content .rar?
    The content are damaged or it hasn’t the correct extension.
    Only work the MEGA links.

  2. BK

    What is the password for the extraction? It won’t let me extract unless I have this password.

  3. anisima90

    I dont seem to have a this part of step 9.: /Plug-ins/XXX/MediaCore/Red Giant Universe’

    Can someone help out?

        Hey guys! i think this will help you.
        If the AE is not installed in the default directory, you must create a folder at
        C:\Program Files\Adobe After Effects CC xxxx\Support Files\Plug-ins\
        after that instal Plugins…
        U found all installed files there, move it to your AE folder.(2 folders – “Trapcode” & “Format”)

    Hi Zaid,

    Thanks for the wonderful job you are doing here.

    I know you are not on Mac otherwise it will be sorted out.

    So guys, did anyone find out where is the Media core directory file ?

    Thanks again for your help

  6. george

    Trial expired! Exported video is watermarked.
    Does anyone know how to block Universe from calling home? Thx!

    1. oldclippa

      Hey I just had the same issue and I uninstalled and re-installed the Red Giant Link app, then do the whole thing all over again. It’ll work.


    hey bro thanks but u upload universe 1.6 i want this plsss thnks for all

    1. Zaid Sparrow Post author

      May be it doesn’t support CC 2015, or may be you went wrong somewhere because these programs work fine for everyone :?

  8. Matthew

    hey, at step 8 i got lost, after i extracted the file i just get some folders but i cant find the patcher

  9. Hephzidee

    Hey I have seen Universe 1.6 on some other website. But its not 1.6. It is 1.5 renamed. Just so you know, so that you probably don’t stumble on the same.

  10. somehelphere

    hey, i followed all the steps but i still have a trial membership!! what should i do???

  11. somehelphere

    oh one more question so i don’t screw it again, can you explain with more detail part 10 and 11? because that’s where i did something wrong.. thanks in advance

    1. Zaid Sparrow Post author

      Hi. part 10 means select the programs which you want to crack using the patcher and 11 means simply block them in your Firewall so they cant access the internet.

  12. somehelphere

    well yes i understand that part, i want you to be more detailed, like where you go exactly in little snitch and what you do there and when i throw the extensions in the patcer it asks red giant needs permission for sth you say yes right?

    1. Zaid Sparrow Post author

      damn! you messed it i think. i’ve never used Snitch please google “how to block program in snitch”

  13. somehelphere

    i reinstalled it from the beginning but nothing changed! :/ please help! i get stuck in the last two parts

  14. prajith

  15. Jose

  16. Funky monk

  17. Funky monk

    From the last post. Now it worked! just erase the Universe link and install the one given in the oficial page

  18. Anna

    Hello Zaid,

    Trial always expire on my Mac, I guess because I haven’t blocked all connections correctly. Would you please suggest any other method similar to Little Snitch app?

    1. Zaid Sparrow Post author

      no i’m not aware of something like that but you can try 2 things : download universe 2.0 or search on google. universe 2.0 is available on my site please search.

      1. Corey Austin

        May seem like a dumb question, so forgive me, but how do I open the SP patch to drag and drop the effects in? I get an error saying the programme ‘quit unexpectedly’

  19. Francis

    I can not open [SP]. Unexpected closing appears and I can not go forward. The test of 14 days was activated and until then I arrived. What I can do?
