Red Giant Effects Suite 10 Software for Distinctive Visual Effects (Download)
The Red Giant Effects Suite 10 Software (Electronic Download) is a set of software plug-ins used for distinctive visual effects and gives you creative freedom. It includes Holomatrix 1.2, Image Lounge 1.4.5, Knoll Light Factory 2.7, Knoll Light Factory for Photoshop 3.2, PlaneSpace 1.4, Psunami 1.4, Text Anarchy 2.4, ToonIt 2.1 and Warp 1.1.
Creating a hologram effect in After Effects, the Holomatrix 1.2 offers a new dimension in effect generation with over 30 presets that turn ordinary footage into animated sci-fi holograms, mimic bad TV reception and create realistic looking digital signage.
Allowing you to replicate natural elements like smoke, fire, water and more, the Image Lounge 1.4.5 with over 20 presets enables you to add realistic touches using shadows, displacement, color mapping, or use accurate camera blur and focus effects to replicate out-of-focus images shot with a film camera.
The Knoll Light Factory 2.7 and Knoll Light Factory for Photoshop 3.2 is used to simulate reflections from a bright light source as seen through a camera lens and adds interests to text or logos or add extra pop to FX explosions. In addition, it offers CS5/64-bit compatibility and with over 100 presets, real-time previewing and 19 powerful flare tools creates custom effects with ease.
Designed to ease the tedious task of managing individual layers in multi-layer effect videos, the PlaneSpace 1.4 allows you to automatically create layers which include cubic, cylindrical and spheroid shapes or complex matrices. The PlaneSpace facilitates in arranging 3D layers throughout 3D space into the shape of your choice without requiring keyframes or complicated math.
The Psunami 1.4 allows you to generate precise 3D geometry of water surfaces from flat pools to raging high seas and produces ultra-realistic ray-traced output giving it a real look. Featuring hundreds of editable controls, it also lets your camera fly in 3D space above the water, on the water's surface, or even below the water. It enables you to manipulate water reflection with the sky of your choice and provides a quick setup and preview with grayscale mode. The Psunami 1.4 allows you to create compelling custom effects such as whirlpool or wakes and adds atmospheric effects like fog, rainbows, or haze.
With Bezier paths, particle arrays and Matrix-style patterns, the Text Anarchy 2.4 allow you to add visual background noise, using text as a texture, or flashing words to reinforce a theme, while providing fine typographic control. It also includes the geomancy shapes plug-ins for additional creativity.
The Red Giant ToonIt 2.1 quickly and easily creates smooth cartoon-like output with very little jitter and using unique algorithms transforms your images into cartoon shading and lines. With rendering options that allow you to make the right tradeoffs between quality and render time, the ToonIt has been optimized for up to 3-4x faster output, especially for an HD source and provides significant gains with 64-bit compatibility. Allowing precise control over styles, shading and outlines, the ToonIt features plug-ins that exempt you from using time consuming techniques like rotoscoping and hand painting.
Using 6 plug-ins, the Warp 1.1 allows you to control shadows, reflection, glows and corner point warps. Using the shadow tool, it renders realistic shadows for text or subjects shot on green screen and includes the reflection tool which creates mirror-like reflections. With radium glow, glow lite and glow edge, the software adds sophisticated glows and glimmers to your video projects. In addition, it also includes the corner pin tool, which heightens the realism in any scene with advanced features for working with warped images, importing tracking data from Mocha for After Effects and adding secondary transforms and motion blur.
