REMap 1.1 released
RE:Vision Effects today released RE:Map 1.1, an update to its kit of mapping and distortion tools introduced earlier this year. The latest revision offers floating point image support within Adobe After Effects 7.0, and adds an additional plug-in -- RE:Map Inverse UV -- that takes a UV Map and a color image that matches the UV Map to inversely project the color image to a rectangular image. Re:Map offers four other plug-ins which include UV -- which renders an image using a UV mapping; Distort -- which automatically distorts a color image based on the features for a caricature-like effect; Displace -- which wraps an image with a user-supplied displacement map; and Planar -- which maps or inverse maps a perspective plane defined by four points. RE:Map is available for Autodesk Combustion, Eyeon Software's Fusion, Adobe After Effects as well as Premiere, Apple's Final Cut Pro, Motion, GenerationQ, and other applications that support After Effects-compatible plug-ins. The upgrade is free for RE:Map 1.0 owners, and is available to new users for $150. Render-only licenses are also available for $30.
