This week we're delving into HUD VFX, with some exciting HUD inspiration and cool tools to help speed up your own HUD VFX workflow.

This looks like another indispensible plugin from Yanobox for creating cool graphic effects that are ideal for HUD/FUI design. Their Nodes plugin, has been a HUD designer favourite for a few years now and I think Mosaic will be the next big thing.

To understand what this plugin does, check out the impressive demo video here.


In this quick Red Giant UNIVERSE tutorial, Harry Frank shows you how to add HUD elements into your VFX shots or motion graphics projects. You can download a free trial of UNIVERSE HUD Components to follow along with the tutorial here.


When it comes to HUD/FUI VFX, Cantina Creative are up there with the best of them. Having created some of the most engaging HUD/FUI for movies such as The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 and Avengers: Age Of Ultron, they are back again with another example of outstanding work in Captain America Civil War.
