Re:Vision releases Re:Map
RE:Vision Effects today released Re:Map, a kit of mapping and distortion tools, and announced that it will demo the tools at NAB (booth #SL5138) alongside the company's other products. Re:Map is a set of four plug-ins which consist of UV, Distort, Displace, and Planar. UV takes a UV Map and renders an image using that mapping. Distort takes a color image and automatically distorts the image based on the features for a caricature-like effect. Displace warps an image with a user-supplied displacement map, and Planar maps or inverse maps a perspective plane defined by four points (also known as corner-pinning and inverse-corner-pinning). Re:Map is an After Effects-compatible plug-in set, and is available for Autodesk combustion, eyeon software's Fusion, Adobe After Effects and Premiere, Final Cut Pro, Motion, and other applications that support After Effects-compatible plug-ins. Re:Map Effects is priced at $150, with render-only licenses costing $30. RE:Map is free for users who purchased Effections after march 16th, 2006 (specific system requirements were unavailable).
