Cycore Effects HD 1.5
Cycore has released an update to its plug-ins for After Effects, Adobe's video graphics program. The CycoreFX HD 1.5 update runs natively on Intel-based Macs as a Universal Binary, and adds an improved version of PowerPin as well as support for "HDR light probes" in Environment. The latest release also includes a better dust shader in Plastic, and a collection of obsolete 16-bit versions of PS Classic and PS LE Classic to help backward compatibility with the standard CycoreFX package. The HD plug-ins work with After Effects 5.5 through 7.0, as well as Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X. The v1.5 upgrade is available for $300 new, and is available for free to current plug-in users.
