The Auto FX Software: Mystical Lighting and Ambiance Gen1 for Mac has now added 6 new effects to its previous existing portfolio of 27 bringing its total number of visual lighting effects to 33. Mystical Lighting and Ambiance Gen1 visual effect enhancements allow the user to stream natural light, create shadows and create atmospheric conditions such as rain, snow, fog, smoke and haze.
New to the atmospheric category of effects, the user can now create their realistic Lightning Effects (not to be confused with lighting) for those stormy clouds and electrifying situations. Add Club Lights to the background or foreground of your motion and dance shots to generate 360 degree lighting effects around your subject.
Improved in Mystical Lighting and Ambiance Gen1 are the Snow and Rain Effects giving you greater control over the size, shape and depth of each snowflake. With the Rain Effect easily control the distance and intensity of each raindrop which now gives the user the ability to add puddling to the ground for a more realistic Rain Effect.
Mystical Lighting and Ambiance Gen1 has a number of new effects that stream in visual enhancements across your photos. Easily apply an effect to the entire photo or just to the areas you want with the Brush-On / Brush-Off tools. For example - moving, expanding and adjusting the T-Path control, the user can exactly position the lighting / shading effect and stream it across the image to naturally blend into the scene. Each T-path has it's own atmospherics and light beam settings.
Whether you want to stream in light, enhance shadows, add a bit of shading, brush on some mist or combine it all together, Mystical Lighting and Ambiance Gen1 can also be used to enhance that special look and feel with your portrait shots.
Mystical Lighting and Ambiance 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.
As you use Mystical Lighting and Ambiance 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 of 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 Lighting and Ambiance 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.
