Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Another stellar Output tutorial from Eli! Once again Eli shows everything about the plug-in plus practical applications of it from subtle to huge effect. I bought Thermal without full knowledge of what it was capable of (after all, there was a sale and Output doesn’t miss). Now that I have watched this tutorial I am highly impressed with its capabilities and diversity of applications, and very excited to play with it.
