Fnord debuts ProEXR Adobe plug-ins

updated 10:50 am EDT, Tue August 21, 2007

Fnord ProEXR plug-ins

Fnord software is shipping its ProEXR collection, a set of six plug-ins for Adobe Photoshop and After Effects. While Adobe provides basic support for the OpenEXR format, Fnord claims that ProEXR exploits the format, allowing access to features such as multiple image layers, preservation of color space and all possible compression options. Using Photoshop CS3 Extended, EXR files can be saved without collapsing layers, and then opened in programs such as Shake, Nuke and Fusion; After Effects takes advantage of the plug-ins for input and output, extraction of channels into a composition, and automatic project setup from layered files.

Compression options include the recent B44 format, which allows some loss to shrink 32-bit float images to a fraction of their original disk space. ProEXR for Photoshop be on sale today for $95, but the After Effects plug-ins are a free, open-source download.
