RE:Flex 3.1 for AE 7.0

RE:Vision Effects has updated its morphing and warping plugin RE:Flex with High Dynamic Range image support and a major performance upgrade for Adobe After Effects 7.0. RE:Flex 3.1 uses both open and closed splines for its free-form interface rather than a mesh-based solution. RE:Flex is especially easy to learn because it uses the After Effects' own drawing and masking tools to direct the warping and morphing, according to the company. RE:Flex 3.1 offers HDR (floating point) image support when running within Adobe After Effects 7.0, Professional edition well as introduces a new temporally coherent warping technique which the company says "eliminates the jittery results users sometimes saw with RE:Flex even whentheir spline animations were obviously smooth. The new method is slightly more compute intensive, but can substantially improve the results on some animations."

RE: Vision says the update also improves performance by 25-35% on G5-based Macs running Mac OS X 10.4.4 Tiger. It is a free update for previous users. The AE version is $600, while ender-only licenses are $120.

RE:Flex has also been updated to version 3.1 for Autodesk combustion and discreet systems, and eyeon software's Fusion 5. An Apple Shake update is also planned, according to the release.
