The Auto FX Software: Mystical Focus Gen1 for Mac is a suite of 16 visual effect enhancements, which includes a special masking filter, allowing the user to bring attention to a specific area of an image for a unique expression. It works by giving the user the ability to blend realistic depth of field with selective focal brushing to create results that are desired. The user has total control in creating the exact focal point in their image and drawing attention to that focal point in very creative ways. Use Mystical Focus Gen1 to easily create depth-of-field; panning motion, focal point, bokeh (blur) and tilt-shift focus results to enhance your digital images. You simply pick a solution then preview and refine the results.
Mystical Focus Gen1 allows the user to work directly with the digital image or photo instead of working within a small dialog box and pin-pointing where you would like the effect applied. Because the Mystical Focus Gen1 interface enables working directly on the image, its convenience enhances the users productivity removing the trial-and-error approach. Simply, click the area exactly where you wish to enhance.
Mystical Focus Gen1 allows dynamic rendering and a combination of different filters together in one digital image. The user can combine a Focal Plane with a Focal Brush effect then add in a Panning Focus effect to a small part of the image. With robust brush-on / brush-off tools as well as ellipse controls / path controls and focal mask controls the user can create specialized focal effects that are fast and easy.
All the controls and tools found in Mystical Focus Gen1 are standardized which makes them easy to use as well as understand. Move the sliders to adjust and refine the effect to create that special digital enhancement. Each tool gives you support with its tool-tips pop up which appears when you scroll over the tool or control. Hold your mouse over the tool and in a few seconds a helpful hint will give you a quick description to assist you in understanding the tools capabilities.
Your new interface design includes a streamlined workflow with larger and faster before/after previews, an improved rendering engine, brush palettes, new effect layers, easier brush-on / brush-off tools, instant effect presets with larger previews to give the user the most comprehensive tools in the industry. Easily apply an effect to the entire digital image or to the precise areas you want with the scalable Brush-On / Brush-Off tools.
Mystical Focus Gen1 includes a selection of instant preset effects giving the user an easy starting point to work from. Now anyone can design their own presets and save them for later use on other images which gives the user total originality in their images.
Click 'Select Preset' (cursor highlighted in yellow) and you are there. The new roll-over before/after preset controls display examples of how the effect will look after applied. Customized User Created Presets can be limited to just one effect or several stacked together providing a wide array of user control and creativity.
As you use Mystical Focus Gen1 you will find that it's easy to combine effects together to create that perfect digital image needing minor to major lighting adjustments. Simply check your layers on/off to see how the image appears with or without a particular effect in the stack.
The user notices on/off as indicated by a green check mark for active or a red X for inactive. When the user chooses one particular layer effect to de-activate, the other layers will remain 'active' providing the enhancement and refinement desired. A yellow highlight indicates the particular layer you are currently working with to increase or decrease the enhancement through the sliders and tools.
Mystical Focus Gen1 is tightly integrated with Adobe Photoshop and works as a plug-in filter accessible under the filters menu in Photoshop. Saving in Adobe Photoshop format as a plug-in will export the effect layers into a single transparent layer in an Adobe Photoshop native document. Also Auto FX Software works great with Adobe Photoshop Elements as well as Corel Draw and Corel Paintshop Pro. Auto FX Software doesn't require any special skills or techniques to use and is easy for everyone from beginners to masters.
